Leland isn't the only one of Chapman's kids, biological or otherwise, to honor her during this difficult time. Her daughter, Bonnie, posted a sweet photo of her mom and Dog snuggling at a restaurant while the bounty hunter kisses his wife on the cheek. She captioned the image with two heart emojis.

Bonnie shared the same photo on Instagram, revealing that it was taken in July 2018. She added a brief statement to followers about her mom's condition, asking that everyone keep Beth in their prayers.

"If you haven't heard, my mother is in an induced coma," she wrote. "Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers."

The latest update on Chapman is that she is in a medically induced coma at Queen's Medical Center's ICU in Honolulu. The Chapman family asked for prayers for her while she's hospitalized.
