Duane 'Dog' Chapman Thanks Daughter Bonnie for Supporting His Decision to Get Engaged
The “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star’s daughter had a lot to say to those that called her father out for getting engaged less than a year since losing his first wife, and he was thankful for it.
The news comes nearly eleven months after the passing of Duane’s wife of thirteen years, the late Beth Chapman, who lost her battle with throat and lung cancer back in June at the age of 51.
When Duane shared an exclusive interview he did with The Sun on which he delivered the happy news, there were many that considered that it was too soon to marry another woman and that he was disrespecting Beth’s memory.

This look is very old, like 2 months old 😭 I just wanted to say thank you for the constant support even though I rarely post anymore. Makeup doesn’t feel important right now. My mental and physical health haven’t been the best so I’m putting those first. I hope you’re doing the same. Remember to put work into yourself, it’ll pay off. Please stay safe. I love you guys and thank you for those who have continued to support me through patreon or through my past collab during times like this. I can’t thank you all enough for just being there. I hope you and your families are doing well in this unusual and stressful time. I don’t know when I’ll post next, but I’ll be on Twitter and Snapchat to update you on what’s happening in my day to day life
After Duane’s 21-year-old daughter Bonnie took to the comments section of the post to express her support to Duane finding love again and to respond to those that attacked him, the famous bounty hunter publicly thanked her.
“Thank you Bonnie,” Duane captioned a screenshot of Bonnie’s long message to those that oppose his upcoming marriage to Frane.
WHAT BONNIE WROTE
Bonnie started off by thanking those who were supportive of her father’s decision, but she rapidly aimed at “those who want to criticize,” to whom she asked to let Duane moved on with his life as he chooses, in peace.
Bonnie assured the critics that Duane was never going to forget Beth and the love the two enjoyed for so long, but she pointed out that her late mother would only be happy to know that Duane is with someone who loves him once again.
“Life is filled with so much sorrow and hurt, in times like this is when love is found unexpected.”
Bonnie’s older sister, 32-year-old Lyssa Chapman, was also quick to take to social media to support her father in this new chapter of his life, apart from welcoming her future step-mother into the family.
“Welcome to the fam, Fran!” Lyssa reportedly wrote in a candid Instagram Story on May 4, right after the news of Duane and Frane’s engagement became publicly known.
