DOG the Bounty Hunter revealed his wedding date to fiancée Francie Frane two years after the death of his wife Beth Chapman.
The reality star also admitted he "felt very bad wanting someone" after Beth.
The 68-year-old appeared on the podcast Two Guys From Hollywood and discussed many things, including the changes in his life – however, he turned heads when he revealed when he will be tying the knot.
After he was asked whether he is currently married, Dog said: "I am getting married- I'm going to drop the bomb on your show."
He then indeed do just that, as he said he will be getting married on "September 2nd."
Dog revealed: "We went to the venue and picked it out yesterday and looked at it- man it costs a lot to get married, my God…
"Francie's husband passed away over three years ago. Beth passed away over two years ago and I felt very bad to even wanting to have someone else after Beth…"
However, he felt at ease when he learned from the bible that "God does not want man to be alone…"
Beth passed away in June 2019 at the age of 51 after a two year battle with throat cancer, while Francie's husband Bob died a few months prior to that.
Last September, Dog told ET: "Let me explain this, cause this is touch-and-go. She's not another Beth, she ain't gonna take Beth's place."
In the same interview, Francie explained how they both helped one another grieve following the death of their respective spouses, as she said: "We could cry with each other and talk about what we were feeling.
"We were able to walk alongside each other through the pain and heartbreak and it brought us together in this amazing way.”
'MY FRANCIE FRANCIE!'
Dog's exciting announcement comes just a few days after the TV star hinted at his wedding in an Instagram tribute to Francie.
Dog – real name Duane Chapman – shared a snap of Francie all dressed up in a multi-colored, funky minidress and cowboy boots, smiling big for the camera, as he could be seen in a mirror on the wall taking the photo.
In the caption, the bounty hunter wrote: “My Francie Francie I Love You!!!!” and added he will “soon be proving that beyond a Shadow of a doubt."
The couple got engaged in May 2020 but had to keep delaying their nuptials due to the coronavirus pandemic, as they wanted to have a celebration without any limitations.
"… I want to open it up. I would love to have the biggest wedding there's ever been…" Dog previously exclusively told The Sun.
Dog's 34-year-old daughter Lyssa, one of his 12 children, told her father "don't lose this woman" after meeting Francie for the first time.
