Dog The Bounty Hunter And Cancer-Stricken Wife Welcome Great Grandson

Dog the Bounty Hunter and his wife Beth Chapman have welcomed the birth of their first great-grandchild in an emotional social media post.

Fifty-one-year-old Beth - who is currently battling throat cancer - shared the news on Instagram with the post: "My first great grand baby, he's adorable and he's precious and he came five weeks early to meet me."

In the pictures she can be seen holding the baby boy in a hospital in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Tagging her step-son Leland, she added: "Congratulations @lelandbchapman on the birth of your first grand baby. It just gets better."

Sixty-six-year-old Dog - real name Duane Chapman, who himself is father to 12 children - was not pictured in the post with Beth.

This emotional news comes after Beth had to have emergency surgery in LA, amid reports her throat cancer had returned.

She was first diagnosed with the stage 2 cancer back in September 2017, but things looked positive for a while after she received the news she was cancer-free.

Dog The Bounty Hunter Celebrates First Thanksgiving Since Wife Died

published ata year ago

This was short-lived, however, as the cancer has reportedly spread after returning.

Beth and Dog spoke about living with the disease in a two-hour television special in 2017.

At the time she told TooFab: "I'm lucky to be sharing Thanksgiving with my family, and I'm lucky to be here for these holidays. I've tried to cut stress seriously out of my diet. It really does bad things to you. My voice is not strong all the time, it comes and goes sometimes and sometimes it just stops."

Beth added: "You can't hide it. I felt like our fans have been so loyal to us that we really owed it to share it with them, so that if I could be a blessing to even one person, help one person get early detection."

For years Beth appeared alongside Dog in his WGN television show, Dog the Bounty Hunter.

Although she took a step back from the show following her diagnosis, she confirmed on social media she was returning after posting a selfie along with the comment: "History in the making."

The official page for Dogs Most Wanted re-posted the picture with the comment: "Back in action."
