Duane "Dog" Chapman paid a heartfelt tribute to his late wife Beth Chapman on her post-humous 53rd birthday via a tear-jerking post on Instagram.


The late Beth Chapman lives on in the hearts of her loved ones and her post-humous 53rd birthday on October 29 is proof of that.  In the early hours of today, her doting husband Duane "Dog" Chapman took to social media to honor his late partner.

The bounty hunter shared an up-close portrait of Beth that showcased her beauty. The late bounty hunter donned a sheer black top with her lovely curly blonde locks framing her face in the image.

Fans flooded the comments section of the birthday wishes for the late matriarch and well wishes for her family. The photo was accompanied by a heartwarming caption wishing her a happy birthday. He wrote:

"You are celebrating this day with Jesus and all his angels. That's the only thing that gets us through without you. Happy birthday, Beth. We miss you & love you."


The "Dog the Bounty Hunter" star made the same tear-jerking gesture last year during Beth's 52nd birthday. He reposted two Instagram posts. The first was a teaser clip from their show, "Dog's Most Wanted" that showed highlights of Beth's scenes and was captioned:

"There will never be another like you. Happy birthday Beth! We love you!"


Beth's 53rd posthumous birthday tribute comes a week after her daughter Bonnie Chapman got candid about the challenges of growing up in a famous family.

The other post was a romantic photo of him and Beth that was reposted from her page. Beth tragically passed away on June 26, 2019, at 51 after a long battle with throat cancer, and Dog announced the devastating news via a heartbreaking tweet.


Months after her death, Dog admitted that the loss of his wife wasn't any easier as he realized no one could ever love him as much as she did. Nevertheless, it seems the 67-year-old reality star was able to find love and companionship amid the hurt of saying goodbye to Beth.

In May, it was reported that Dog had gotten engaged to his new lover, Francie Frane. In April, the pair became Instagram official, and reportedly connected over their shared grief for the loss of their partners. 


Frane and the bounty hunter have plans to have a super elaborate wedding ceremony once the ongoing pandemic is over, and social distancing rules are no more.

Beth's 53rd posthumous birthday tribute comes a week after her daughter Bonnie Chapman got candid about the challenges of growing up in a famous family and how she doesn't enjoy the excess attention during outings.

She described her association with her family's fame as a love/hate relationship and opened up about how she usually gets judged by society based on their past and not her personality.
