What an inspiration! Beth Chapman continues to look at the bright side, despite the hardships she’s facing at the moment. Duane “Dog” Chapman’s wife is currently battling cancer and yet she was all smiles while celebrating Leland’s birthday on Dec. 14.
“Let the birthday shenanigans begin. Happy Birthday @lelandbchapman. I’m so happy you came to spend your birthday with us. Let the reindeer games begin,” Beth captioned her video on Instagram. She was laughing in the clip, and making most out of her evening with friends and family. Fans were last treated to a photo of Beth, 51, Dog, 65, and his son, Leland, on Jan. 25. “These two make me laugh! #dog #dogandbeth #alabama,” she wrote in the caption. Prior to that, the Dog the Bounty Hunter stars haven’t posted a photo with Leland since 2014.
Beth’s followers were overjoyed to see her in great spirits, and it’s just another testament to how strong she really is. Dog recently gushed over how Beth has managed to keep her sense of humor, even after discovering that her cancer is back on Nov. 28. Beth had previously been cancer-free for over a year, but she only had a 50/50 shot at beating the stage 2 throat cancer the first time. The cancer has reportedly spread to her lungs now, but she’s not letting that get her down.
“She’s still trying to get involved in my bounties and business,” Dog exclusively revealed to In Touch magazine. “She’s trying to still advise me on my work, and I’m like, ‘Honey, I was Dog the Bounty Hunter before I met you, stay out of it!'” The reality star explained that no matter what, he’ll be by Beth’s side. “I am going to be right there with her,” Dog said. That’s love!
