Duane “Dog” Chapman celebrated his birthday this week while turning two years shy of seven decades. One of the people who wished him a happy birthday on social media was his loving fiancée.


Duane “Dog” Chapman officially turned 68 on Tuesday, February 2, 2021. His fiancée, Francie Frane, made sure to honor him on the special day by dedicating an Instagram post to him.

Frane uploaded a photo of Chapman smiling while posing with his trademark sunglasses. In the caption, she started off the post by showing how fond she was of the bounty hunter, writing:

“Happy Birthday My Darling…”

The reality star’s fiancée continued her message by noting how blessed she was to celebrate the day with Chapman. She described him as a loving, amazing, sweet, and kind man, concluding with:

“I Love You Always…”


The “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star and his fiancée got engaged in May last year. The engagement came months after Chapman lost his reality star wife, Beth Chapman, to a cancer diagnosis.

Early in January 2021, the star revealed how unashamed he was of his past when he shared a new photo on Instagram. In the image, he stood next to his fiancée outside a Florida facility.


At the time, he and Frane were visiting the rehabilitation facility decades after he beat his crack addiction. The image also included several staff members who work at the facility.

He shared the same photo from the Your Second Chance recovery facility based in Delray Beach in his Instagram Story. Chapman previously confessed that he smoked crack for a year after his mother died in 1995.


Last year, the bounty hunter and his fiancée celebrated Thanksgiving by taking to social media. The post included a picture of the couple posing together while Frane smiled and Chapman looked straight ahead.

The couple celebrated together, with Frane sharing the image of them on her Instagram account. The photo was encased in a holiday-themed border, and she captioned it by wishing everyone a happy holiday.


Chapman declared his love for his fiancée a month before the “Dog’s Most Wanted” star proposed at his home. The pair actually confirmed in March 2020 that they were officially dating.

Taking to Instagram, the reality star declared his love for Frane by revealing how she’d been able to put a smile on his face since the loss of his wife. The post included a lovely image of his fiancée.
