Dog The Bounty Hunter looked the picture of marital bliss with his sixth wife Francie Frane on Saturday.

The 68-year-old reality star was seen enjoying a morning cigarette with his newly-minted wife, 52, at The Antlers Hotel in Colorado Springs.

The sighting comes just two days after the pair of a year-and-a-half tied the knot at a Tuscan-style estate, and they have been shacked up at the hotel since.

Dog — real name Duane Lee Chapman — was seen sitting in a chair opposite his bride as he donned a bandana printed blouse and a pair of blue jeans with sneakers. 

He rocked his usual sunglasses and feathered bleached hair while chatting with Frane who he gazed at lovingly. 

The Colorado based rancher was seen showing off her arsenal of tattoos in a Blondie T-shirt and jean shorts with a studded belt. 

Her blonde curly hair was half clipped back and after spending time chatting with her husband she was seen entering back into the building. 

The couple, first began dating in March 2020 — just 10 months after late wife Beth (who he married in 2006) passed after a battle with Stage 4 lung cancer in June 2019.

Dog popped the question just months later and the pair married on September 2 surrounded by friends and family — with the exception of daughters Bonnie and Cecily Chapman who were uninvited amid ongoing family drama. 

The duo exchanged vows (which they wrote) at The Sweet Water Chapel and the reception was held at The Pinery At The Hill, with DailyMail.com obtaining exclusive photos of the night. 

Ahead of the wedding Dog told ET: ‘This is going to be the celebrity wedding of 2021, scoot over Blake Shelton.’ 

At the reception they each picked their own flavor of wedding cake: ‘I don’t like his part and he doesn’t like mine,’ Frane said of their different tastes.  

After marrying Dog gushed: ‘I’m a married man and I feel great,’ adding ‘Francie and I are thrilled to be husband and wife.’

Chapman had been married five times before and he has 13 children. His ex-wives include Debbie White, La Fonda Sue Darnell, Ann Tegnell, Lyssa Rae Brittain and the late Beth Chapman.

His daughter Bonnie and stepdaughter Cecily were uninvited to the most recent nuptials and a wave of family drama ensued. 

Both girls had initially theorized that it may have been because they may have ‘reminded him a little bit too much of their mom [Beth],’ in conversation with TMZ before things turned ugly.

At the time Cecily had reached out to her stepfather Dog about not getting invited to the wedding but she alleged she never received a text back, and Bonnie had yet to confront him.

Bonnie had later followed up with the publication about a second theory and said that her involvement with Black Lives Matter fractured she and Dog’s relationship.

Following her statements, Bonnie received a text message from Francie allegedly confirming she had not been invited to their wedding due to her activism work and failure to condemn the streaming platform that allegedly fired her father over the use of ‘epithets’.

Following the message, Bonnie took to Facebook to blast her father in a lengthy statement where she accused him of racism, homophobia, and cheating on his late wife ‘all the time,’ even when she was ‘sick in the hospital.’

In the post she also brandished him as having ‘racist ways,’ said he sat idly by when her life was ‘threatened on several occasions by QAnon wackos,’ and said she felt inclined to speak out to honor her mom’s legacy as she would have not ‘stand for this.’

Bonnie also claimed Francie traveled on a plane ‘knowing’ she was infected with COVID-19 and attended events as she wrote: ‘She didn’t seem to care about the thousands of people she could have infected.’

Dog’s representative told E!: ‘Bonnie’s allegations are false and a misguided attempt to derail our wedding,’ and said that though they were ‘saddened’ by the family rift, they were looking forward to getting married.
