Chapman revealed that he wants to open his wedding to his fans too.
Dog Chapman is officially engaged to girlfriend Francie Frane confirms The Sun.
According to the outlet, the bounty hunter popped the question to his now-fiancee in a romantic candlelit proposal at their home in Colorado.
The pair has been posting photos of their quarantine activities together and they look happier than ever. In an interview with The Sun, Chapman admitted that he is indeed very happy, so much so, that he wants to have the "biggest wedding there's ever been" open to all his fans, in what he says will be "one hell of a party."
Describing the romantic proposal, Francie, 51, said, "I wasn't expecting it at all. 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."
"So when I came in I was like, 'Wow, this is awesome'. Then he said, 'Come in, sit down because I need to talk to you'. 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,'" she went on.
The would-be-Mrs.Chapman teared up while describing the proposal and added, "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?'"
"Who can say no to that? It was wonderful."
The couple is waiting for the lockdown to ease out before getting married. The ceremony will be attended by all of Chapman's 12 children, Francie's two sons, and their grandchildren.
Moreover, in a rare turn of events, Chapman is planning to open his wedding ceremony for his fans as well but says that he needs to talk Francie into this first. "I've had so many fans ask 'When you marry Francie, are you going to let your fans come?'" he revealed. "So we're word negotiating right now because I want to open it up."
"I would love to have the biggest wedding there's ever been. I'm sorry but that's just me. I hope I can talk Francie into it and open it to my fans, the 'Dog Pound,' to everybody. It would be one hell of a party and it's just what people need right now"
"I told Francie, people they need a little love after being locked down. I love the idea of that."
Addressing some of the criticism that the couple has been getting, they said they don't think that it's too soon to get married again because they have had their share of grief and loss [both Chapman and his fiancee lost their previous partners to cancer]. However, they also know that they have the support of many admirers and most importantly, their family members.
"You know we go to Walgreens, Walmart, Starbucks and every single fan has been like 'My God you guys look good together' or 'Boy Dog you should keep with her, with her strength and her Christianity, she will stand by you,'" Chapman recounted. "Or they tell Francie 'That guy right there is loyal.' So we have trusted that - and everyone is happy for us."
"And you know there's always going to be haters, and I probably arrested half of them."
Francie added, "I think too that there's always going to be people who say we did this wrong or we did that wrong or we've moved on too quickly or too fast."
She continued, "But the truth is that both of us have spent three years walking alongside our spouses sick and we know that God brought us together and that's why we don't believe that it's too soon. And because we both have done our share of screaming and crying and asking why."
"Then for us to come together the way that we did and build this friendship because of what we've been through, that turned into a love story. We don't believe that it's too soon."
We wish Dog Chapman and Francie Frane a wonderful life of love, laughter, and peace!
