Dog the Bounty Hunter took to social media early on Sunday evening to wish his son, Wesley Chapman, a happy birthday.

Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, has become one of the most popular figures in America over the years. His A&E hit reality show chronicled the life of Chapman and his experiences as a bounty hunter. The show aired for eight seasons before finally being canceled in 2012. In addition to Dog the Bounty Hunter, Chapman has starred in several spin-offs including Dog and Beth: On the Hunt, Dog and Beth: Fight of Their Lives, Dog’s Most Wanted, and Dog’s Unleashed.

You may recall that Duane Chapman was most recently in the news for getting personally involved in the search for a now-deceased fugitive. That would be Brian Laundrie, the man who was the sole suspect in the Gabby Petito homicide case.

However, not so much is known about Dog’s children, including his son Wesley Chapman. And it turns out that Wesley has been extremely successful in his own right. He is an award-winning speaker, author, and business leader. Of course, it goes without saying that he first gained a lot of attention thanks to being the son of a famous bounty hunter. As a matter of fact, Wesley has even appeared before on his father’s show.

But Wesley Chapman made the decision not to follow in his father’s footsteps. Instead, he forged his own professional path. Not only does he have a career in the business industry, but he also runs a nonprofit organization called A Human Project. He and his wife co-founded it.

And if social media is any indication, it seems like Dog the Bounty Hunter is pretty dang proud of his son. He posted a heartfelt happy birthday message to Wesley on his official Instagram account.

“Happy Birthday to my Son Wesley!! Love You Son,” Dog captioned his latest post.
