Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, is engaged to his new girlfriend, Francie Frane.
The Dog’s Most Wanted star, who lost his wife and business partner, Beth Chapman, to cancer in June, shared the engagement news with The Sun, saying he proposed while they have been socially isolating together at his home in Colorado. He hopes to have a big wedding blowout wedding — his sixth time saying “I do” — when gatherings are permissible again amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Chapman, 67, said he staged a romantic candlelit proposal at the home they’ve been sharing — despite getting together only a couple months ago after his split with Moon Angell. He said he got down on one knee.
“I think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit,” Frane, 51, said. He called her over, “So I put all the food in the kitchen and I came in and he said, ‘I know that God brought you into my life and I don’t want to spend one moment of it without you.’… And he got down on one knee and he opened the ring box and he said, ‘Will you marry me and spend the rest of our lives together?’”
She added, “Who can say no to that? It was wonderful.”
