Dog the Bounty Hunter's Daughter Reacts to His Engagement, 10 Months After His Wife's Death

Bonnie Chapman is speaking out in response to the news that her father, Duane Chapman (aka Dog the Bounty Hunter) is engaged.

Duane‘s wife and Bonnie‘s mom, Beth Chapman, passed away just 10 months ago after a battle with cancer.

Last year, Duane talked about how he contemplated suicide after Beth‘s death and now their daughter is just happy to know that her dad is happy again.

“My father has gone through so much this past year without my mother. It’s been extremely difficult to see one parent pass, and the other so intent on following. My father deserves to be happy,” she wrote on Instagram. “He’s still got my mother’s name on his chest. He’ll never forget her and the love she gave him. She would be happy my father is in love and finding peace.”

“Life has never been easy for my dad, but love is something that comes naturally to him,” she added.

Bonnie wrote in a comment to a fan that she feels her mom “sent Francie,” his new fiancee, to her dad.

“She’s a blessing and is helping my dad heal day by day,” she said.

Back in February, he proposed to another woman on TV.
