The popular reality TV star said that there will never be another Beth before insisting that he wants Francie to be "the last Mrs. Chapman."
With their commitment and love to each other, late Beth Chapman and Duane "Dog" Chapman inspired their admirers for decades. In fact, after Beth's tragic demise, the Chapmans' fans turned out to be one of his greatest support systems. They not only shared their words of kindness and empathy through his grieving period but also supported him when he revealed that he was ready to move on.
Now that he has announced that he ready to move on to a new chapter of his life, we believe his fans will once again support him through the journey.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, Chapman broke his silence on his relationship with Francie Frane and revealed, "It's going really good."
"It's a God relationship because it's just like a miracle," he added. "It's a miracle how we met and it's a miracle how great we're getting along."
Looks like Chapman is ready to spend the rest of his life with Colorado rancher, Francie. While he does admit that there will never be another Beth, he insists that his new girlfriend will be "the last Mrs. Chapman."
He also explained how they have helped each other in their grieving processes (Francie lost her husband, Bob, to cancer). He shared that this rather vulnerable period together has brought them closer and helped them find "real love" again.
Chapman said, "I know that when I start to feel bad about Beth and it's overwhelming, Francie seems to show up and that helps the kids. And I feel that Beth expects her to show up to take care of me." He added, "And Bob, Francie's late husband, expects me to be a man and a gentleman and so I am."
"It's a very real love that we are developing with each other," he went on. "Both of us are allowed to talk about our spouses that are in Heaven—it's not like we're afraid to mention it or anything like that. We console each other but we also know that we have a responsibility and that is to do this right."
He also spoke about how they are supporting each other through this tough time of a global health emergency. "There are a lot of people watching us. But throughout the coronavirus which is affecting us all right now, love is prevailing. And that's how we feel." But he added, "We're taking this day by day, step by step—big steps come in pairs, little steps come in bunches.
"So that's how we're handling it and how we're doing it." The couple was also fishing together a while ago.
Most of Beth and Dog Chapman's fans seem to be happy with his decision. Unlike his last alleged relationship with Moon Angell, his family approves his new match Francie and welcome her with open arms. The 51-year-old bounty hunter's eldest daughter Lyssa had earlier said, "They are both so happy together and they are good for each other. Francie has been very respectful to all the kids—and to Beth's memory—and my dad is the same way with Bob [Francie's ex-husband] and their children."
"They go to church three times a week and dad is trying to give up smoking—she is a good woman for my dad," Lyssa went on. "He's the happiest I've seen him in a long time—he's so in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Francie," she hinted before.
His family's approval means everything to him because Chapman always wants his family close to him and cannot imagine doing anything that could hurt them. "What's important now is that my family, my close family, every single one of the kids and grandkids, approve of Francie and that makes a huge difference," The Sun quoted him.
Finally, Duane Lee Chapman's life seems to be getting back together, after it was left shattered by Beth's death. Lyssa had once said, "Beth would approve—I honestly believe that Beth sent Francie for my dad—I feel like Beth and Bob are up there watching down over them," and this seems to ring true to most of their fans.
