Dog the Bounty Hunter has shared an emotional post honoring his late wife Beth on their anniversary.
Duane ‘Dog’ Chapman has paid a touching tribute to his late wife on what would have been their 14th wedding anniversary.
The 67-year-old reality TV star shared an emotional Instagram photo honoring Beth, who died last year in June as a result of throat cancer.
The touching tribute showed a photo of Chapman and his wife taken at a Texas Roadhouse restaurant, surrounded by Willie Nelson memorabilia.
In it he also remembered his daughter Barbara who died the day before his wedding. He wrote,
“She said Big Daddy you're going to be so sad when I am not here on our next anniversary, why did she have to be so right??”
Chapman shared Barbara Katie with his third wife Lyssa Rae. The “Dog the Bounty Hunter’ star has twelve children in total.
The 23-year-old was killed in a car accident in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Bounty hunter and his family unanimously decided to celebrate the wedding despite the tragedy.
He said that the wedding would happen after restrictions have been eased.
It seems that Chapman has found love again after announcing that he is engaged to his girlfriend after they became Instagram official in April.
In an interview with ‘The Sun’, he said that the wedding would happen after restrictions have been eased and that he was considering inviting fans. He said,
“It would be one hell of a party and it’s just what people need right now. I told Francie, people need a little love after being locked down. I love the idea.”
His girlfriend Franci Frane, had previously shared a post about what a blessing it was to have Dog in her life, 10 months after the death of his wife.
Since then the pair have regularly posted photos and tributes to their relationship often captioned with bible verses.
Dog and Francie reportedly met after he had moved to Colorado and called Francie’s husband for some landscaping work, only to find out he had passed away.
The two leaned on each other through their shared grief and grew closer together with Chapman’s family having given Francie their stamp of approval.
