His feelings for her grow stronger by the day. Duane “Dog” Chapman reportedly had to hold back tears while discussing his wife’s cancer battle during a new interview. The reality star revealed how inspired he is by Beth’s ability to stay strong, despite being diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer.
Duane, 66, and Beth, 51, tied the knot in 2006 and he’s “vowed” to stay by her side amidst her health struggles. “I’ve always loved her but I told her the other day, ‘Honey, I fell in love with you again. I love you more right now than I ever have,’” he told HollywoodLife.com.
“If you don’t really love the person, if you’re not really in love with them and you’re afraid to say that, you go, ‘Love you too.’ And as a human, you love them,” Duane continued. “But when you say, ‘I’m in love with you.’ See the difference? We’ve been together almost 30 years. I don’t know anybody but her, really.”0
Beth is currently filming with Duane for their WGN show, Dog’s Most Wanted, and she’s still been taking down fugitives like a total pro. It’s obviously hard for the father-of-twelve to see his beloved wife going through something so tough, but working with Duane is giving her joy. “The other day she said to me, ‘I’m not sure, but I could be dying,’” he revealed while getting emotional. “She said, ‘I want you to look where I’m at. I’m on the road, chasing bad guys with my family, Duane.’” You know, when we’re out there chasing bad guys we don’t think about it.”
It’s been a long road for Beth and yet she continues to inspire fans everywhere. On November 27, 2018, she was rushed into emergency surgery to remove a blockage in her throat, and just hours later, she reportedly learned that her cancer had returned. Beth reportedly started chemotherapy in December, after it spread to her throat and lungs. Duane now revealed they are no longer resorting to “conventional treatments,” as he explained they “don’t work.”
Duane also confirmed that Beth is “feeling fine” these days and said she’s still just as driven to take down the bad guys. “So I’ve got to keep her busy,” he told the site. “I’m sure that’s scriptural somewhere. I’ve got to keep her busy and off her mind and all the positive things and I’m not going to let her die. I’m Chiricahua [a Native American tribe] and I believe in G-O-D.”
