Barely ten months after the death of his late wife, Duane Chapman developed a new love interest in a woman called Francie Frane.
Beth, who was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in 2017, died last June at the age of 51.
The relationship was, however, met with criticisms from fans who believed the bounty hunter moved on from his wife too quickly.
"Everyone who's judging my father should sure pray that they never have to lose their loved one and get judged for trying to fill the void."
Bonnie went on to state that her mother would have wanted Duane to be happy. She further warned naysayers from speaking against her dad's relationship while adding that he should be left to live in peace.
Despite all of the negative comments, Dog didn't appear to be bothered as he went ahead to propose to Francie earlier in May.
Once again, Lyssa came out to show her support for her father while officially welcoming Francie into the family. This was, however, not always the case. Before the engagement, Lyssa had openly aired her disapproval of her father's new relationship.
