Inside Dog The Bounty Hunter’s Life Today

In his lifetime, Dog the Bounty Hunter has known so much love and loss. Among his many accomplishments, fathering 12 children likely sits at the top of that list. He fathered his son Christopher Michael Hecht in his teen years and has two sons, Duane Lee Chapman II and Leland Blane Chapman, from his first marriage to La Fonda Sue Darnell.

After his divorce from Darnell, Duane Chapman wed Ann Tegnell in 1979 and they had three sons together, Zebediah, Wesley, and James Robert. This marriage didn’t stick either, and following divorce number two, Champman wed Lyssa Rae Brittain. This relationship also hit the skids, but not before the couple welcomed Barbara Katie Chapman, Tucker Dee, and Lyssa Rae into the world. Duane Chapman’s last biological child is Bonnie Joanne, a daughter Chapman had with his late wife Beth Barmore. Beth also brought her two children from a previous relationship into the fold, Garry and Cecily, who rounded out the “dog pound.”

Each of Dog’s relationships ended in divorce, with the exception of his marriage to the late Beth Chapman. Beth was diagnosed with stage II throat cancer in 2017. While it looked as if she would beat the diagnosis, her condition returned and took her life in 2019. This was not the first time Duane Chapman had to bury someone he loved. His young son Zebediah died in infancy, and years later, his daughter Barbara would die in a tragic car crash
