DOG the Bounty Hunter’s 19-year-old son Garry Chapman was hospitalized after a nasty crash last month.
The teen wound up in the emergency room with a head injury after he “wrecked” a four-wheeler.
In a side-by-side interview, Dog and his fiance Francie Frane opened up about the scary accident and how her children are helping Garry to heal.
The father of 12 revealed his son, who he had with late wife Beth, had just gotten out of the hospital the morning of the interview after crashing his four-wheeler the day prior.
Francie added that her son Greg and his wife are “really close with Garry” and were the ones who took him to the hospital, as well as the ones to take him back home after he was released.
She continued: “He has a slight fracture in his tailbone, and a slight concussion.
“They’re taking care of him now. What they’re building is so [great].
“So, the kids are building a relationship, and we’re building a relationship.”
Dog, 67, and Francie recently became engaged after both losing their spouses to cancer.
He has previously described Francie as a “miracle” and told how while there will never be another “Mrs. Dog” he wants Francie to become “the last Mrs. Chapman.”
While the reality star’s children didn’t all like his last girlfriend, Moon Angell, Dog said all of his daughters “love Francie,” and that she talks to them “almost daily.”
As for his sons, they just want whatever makes him happy.
How many kids does Dog the Bounty Hunter have and what are their names?
DOG The Bounty Hunter has fathered a bountiful brood.
The reality television star has been married five times and is a father to 12 children.
He has two children with his first ex-wife, La Fonda Sue Darnell — sons Duane Lee Chapman, II and Leland Blane Chapman.
With second ex-wife Ann Tegnell, Dog welcomed three children.
With third ex-wife, Lyssa Rae Brittain (née Greene), he welcomed his first daughter – Barbara Katie Chapman, on June 8, 1982. She passed away on May 19, 2006 from a car crash.
They share two further children, son Tucker Dee Chapman and Lyssa Rae Chapman.
Dog welcomed two more children with late wife Beth and also became the adopted father of Cecily Barmore-Chapman, whom was Beth’s daughter by her ex-husband.
Dog said Garry, who is like “little Beth,” was hesitant at first because he “did not like any woman at all” that was around his father, but now “Garry boy talks to Francie more than” Dog.
Francie added: “I’m building a really great relationship with him. I love him so much.”
Last week, shortly after Garry got out of the hospital, he paid tribute to his late mother on the first anniversary of her death.
The certified scuba instructor opened up about missing Beth and wishing he could tell her “so many things” that have happened in his life and things he could ask her “advice on.”
He continued: “You always knew the path I was on and where it lead which helped you give me invaluable advice.
“To think I’ve not been able to lean on you for a year now makes me uneasy; but if your lessons taught me anything I can’t stop, I must keep going, until my dreams are a reality.”
