The 68-year-old reality television star – who has been married five times previously – broke the news on the Two Guys From Hollywood podcast Tuesday he will be marrying the 52-year-old rancher in a matter of weeks. 

He said: ‘I’m getting married. We went to the venue, picked it out yesterday, looked at it. Man, it costs a lot to get married.’

They began dating in March 2020 which was 10 months after his wife Beth Chapman died in June 2019 after complications from throat cancer. 

As Francie had also lost her husband to cancer, Dog looked for spiritual guidance as he explained: ‘Francie’s husband passed away over three years ago, Beth passed away over two years ago, and I felt very bad about even wanting to have someone else after Beth.

‘And then when I went to the Bible, the Genesis, and found out how Adam got Eve, as I was going to find the exact story, I saw the scripture that says, “God does not want a man to be alone.”

‘He knows we need a companion, whether we’re a man or a woman. So anyway, yes, September 2.’

Beth died at a hospital in Hawaii after a long battle with cancer on June 26, 2019. She was 51. 

She and Dog had been married since 2006 and she co-starred alongside her husband on Dog the Bounty Hunter, Dog and Beth: On the Hunt and Dog’s Most Wanted. 

Beth’s health ordeals began in September 2017, when she was diagnosed with Stage 2 throat cancer.

After treatment, the cancer initially went into remission, but it later returned and spread to her lungs.

Nevertheless, Beth continued filming Dog’s Most Wanted at her husband’s side in early 2019.

During filming on June 22, she suffered a medical emergency and had to be hospitalized and placed into a medically induced coma, before dying four days later on June 26.

A few days after announcing his engagement to Francie, Duane told TMZ at the time that ‘it’s just incredible that I’ve been able to meet someone like her.’ 

He explained: ‘Well, she for a living she’s a rancher and she has recently lost her husband to cancer, six months before I lost Beth. So we like hooked up on the phone and started you know, talking to each other, crying, consoling each other.’
