Beth Chapman’s Daughter Shares Touching Photo Tribute
Bonnie Chapman — one of three kids Beth Chapman had with Duane "Dog" Chapman — shared a loving tribute to her mother soon after the 51-year-old Dog the Bounty Hunter Star died.
The photo gallery on Instagram shows the reality television in a hospital bed, as well as at home with her husband and mugging with family. "So thankful to call you my mother," the 20-year-old wrote on Wednesday (June 26) morning. "Rest in Peace, mom. I love you so much."
She also tweeted "You've got a halo now," close to noon.
Chapman died early Wednesday morning. Duane Chapman broke the news saying, "It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."
The Dog the Bounty Hunter star was first diagnosed with Stage II throat cancer in 2017, but was given a clean bill of health a few months later. In November of 2018, however, she revealed that her cancer had returned, later indicating she would not be undergoing any more chemotherapy.
Bonnie Chapman is one of two kids Beth and Duane had together, the other being Garry Dee Chapman. She and Duane also have several kids from other relationships. Garry also tweeted on Wednesday:
Dog the Bounty Hunter wrapped on A&E in 2012 but two spinoffs followed, including one on CMT. A new series called Dog's Most Wanted is slated to begin in 2019 on WGN. Beth Chapman's cancer battle is expected to be part of the storyline.
