She was that cute little girl that Dog the Bounty Hunter hugged and kissed on the cheek while Ozzy Osbourne sang in the background to the opening of the famous bounty hunting reality show. Now, Cecily Chapman is a full-fledged woman at 24 years old as well as a professional bail bondswoman and a lover of Instagram.
For someone who quite literally grew up on a reality show, Cecily still seems to enjoy putting her daily life out there for the world to see. She has a serious boyfriend now and maintains very close relationships with her family, especially with her mother, Beth, and sister, Lyssa's daughter, Maddy. Life in Hawaii seems to be treating the famous reality star daughter well. Growing up on a reality show provides a 50/50 chance for the child in question to either fiercely guard their privacy when they grow up having been annoyed with constant cameras documenting every aspect of their life, or they might be so used to it that they don't seem to mind as they don't know any other way to live.
That's how Cecily turned out as you can follow up on her life, post-bounty hunting show on social media. She's still happily involved in the family business and appears grateful to have had the opportunity that her family was given. Let's catch up with Cecily, shall we?
15 Her Mom's Mini-Me
Cecily is Beth's second child and first daughter, fathered by Keith A. Barmore whom she married on August 26, 1991. Fifteen years later, she became the fifth wife of Dog, the bounty hunter, the man who adopted her daughter and fathered her other two children, Bonnie Jo and Garry. People often comment on Cecily's similar looks to Beth and her personality seems to reflect a lot of Mrs. Dog as well.
Of a recent family vacation in Orlando, Cecily wrote the following caption for this photo: "I'm so happy we got to do fun things this summer before you got diagnosed. When you think of a moment where we had no idea life was only going to throw more difficult challenges at us. I miss her every day she's gone. My mom and dad work really hard on the road and hardly notice they're gone but this time they're gone it's been a scary roller coaster for this family. Forever and always your baby I will be."
14 Former Pageant Queen
On Cecily's Twitter fan page, she tweeted a flashback Friday moment. "Fbf to when my mom made all my 's by hand
#PageantLife since I was a baby!" Who knew that Dog's daughter was once a little tot that could have been on TLC's Toddlers & Tiaras? Only the hardest of hardcore fans and now you, of course. Doesn't Cecily (on the left) look just like one of the girls from that show? Wow - talk about a reality show crossover. Can you imagine Dog hand-sewing sequinned gowns, demanding better choreography, force feeding her Pixy Stix and shouting cues to little Cecily as she twirled in a frilly dress on stage? Oh well, maybe some things just weren't meant to be.
13 "Hey There"
Like most 24-year-olds out there, Cecily also loves to take selfies and upload them to Instagram. Her Twitter page seems like it exists mostly for fan-related stuff to the show but her Insta has both personal photos and honors the show as well that is so dear to her heart - with good reason, too. Cecily grew up on Dog, the Bounty Hunter but starred on Dog and Beth: On The Hunt as a young woman. Both shows mean a lot to her as they do to the other family members as well. Posting personal selfies like this one is not just a way for Cecily to express herself and have some fun but to let fans of the show know what she's up to these days.
12 From Grandma's Girl To All Grown Up
Cecily captioned this photo "Grandma's House" on her Instagram but she certainly doesn't look like a little girl visiting Grandma's house. Cecily is all grown up and looking mighty sassy as she poses for this standard Instagram bathroom mirror selfie with a satisfied and self-assured smirk. Dressed up in a short black dress paired with a denim jacket and stylish sunglasses, we hardly recognize the little girl from her stepdad, Dog's famous bounty hunting show. From this photo alone, it is easy to see that Cecily inherited her mother, Beth's bold behavior. It also seems very apparent that she absorbed some of Dog's take-no-prisoners attitude as well but as far as being the daughter of not just a reality star but an entire family of reality stars, it looks as though this gal is as down-to-earth as it gets.
11 Princess Cecily
In this photo, Cecily wears a hat with a glitzy crown emblazoned on it and it's pretty fitting as how she seems to be every bit the family princess. It's pretty clear to see that she is a mama's girl through and through and Dog has treated Cecily, his adopted daughter, as his very own since he's known her. Cecily is every bit a Chapman, though not by blood and she is very close to her younger half-sister, Bonnie Jo who has recently turned eighteen and graduated from high school. Cecily still shares a tight bond with Dog and regularly posts photos with heartwarming messages about him and about how much the entire family means to her. Living life in such a lovely location surrounded by tons of people that love and support her kind of makes the crown a realistic element.
10 Bunny Babe
She better not get any thoughts of being another type of bunny... we have a feeling that Daddy Dog wouldn't appreciate his darling stepdaughter having those kinds of bunny ambitions. From what we gather, it seems as though Cecily is strictly focused on family, school, her future and position in the family bond business and her boyfriend so those worries aren't valid. Showing off her playful and sweet side is just another way that Cecily is like every other 24-year-old playing around with Instagram filters and posting the bunny-tastic evidence for all of her followers to see. She definitely looks like a younger version of her famous bounty-busting mother, Beth in this photo and is perfectly polished from her manicured gel nails to her glossed pout.
9 A Secret Smile
Is it just us or does Miss Cecily Chapman look she has some serious modelling chops up her sleeve in this photo? With a secret smile for who we can only assume is for her boyfriend, Cecily shines with exception wearing a black sleeveless knit top, onyx and diamond ring as well as a delicate charm on a thin gold chain around her neck, she is a blonde heartbreaker, ready to take on the world. Now that she’s an adult and the show that made her family famous is over, it’s time for her to step out of the limelight and make a name for herself. Her long blonde hair and smattering of freckles go well with her dark green-blue eyes that say that she has much more to offer than just being the daughter of a reality star.
8 "No Filters Needed"
No filters needed for this bathing beauty who added this photo to her beloved Instagram collection of photos showcasing her life in the lovely state of Hawaii. Check out the background and those gorgeous blue Hawaiian mountains surrounded by lush greenery. Cecily is certainly a lucky lady to have these spectacular sights on hand for her viewing pleasure 24/7. It almost seems as if she’s posing in her orange bikini top and black bottoms with a smile that says she knows she’s got it made. Indeed, Cecily seems like a very satisfied girl in this photo and why not? At the tender age of 24, it seems that she has got it all figured out, for the most part, following in her mother's shoes, or black boots to be more accurate and we wish her well!
7 24 And In Love
Cecily is only 24 but seems very much in love with her brown-haired beau. It seems as though she is happy to be in a serious and committed relationship but doesn't seem to be interested in settling down as having children anytime soon as her famous mother and stepfather did. Cecily seems very dedicated to her budding career in the bond business, following in her famous parents' shoes. She constantly posts about her attendance at conferences for bail bond professionals and has joined several groups that cater to women who are bail bond professionals. Her mother must be extremely proud of her look-alike daughter who is a chip off of Beth's block in just about every way, it seems. Cecily seems satisfied in all aspects of her life and is looking forward to her bright future.
6 Bounty Hunting Cousins: The Next Generation
Cecily Chapman is the daughter of Beth Chapman and Keith Barmore. But as soon as a divorced Beth met Dog, he adopted the young blonde child into his brood and they became the big blended family known as "#DogPound." Dakota Chapman is the son of Leland Chapman, Dog's son, and Leland's former wife, Maui Chapman. Technically, Cecily is Dakota's step-aunt but due to their close ages and the fact that the two grew up together, they just refer to each other as cousins to simplify things. They have more in common than their shared relatives, too. Both of these Chapmans love the bounty hunting business and want nothing more than to break into it in their own right. And they both look serious and ready to get down to some business in this photo.
5 Instagram After Workout
Is it just us or is there a bit of Kardashian ambition here? Let's start with some basic comparisons, shall we? Firstly, both the Chapmans and Kardashians are large, blended families. Secondly, they are both families full reality stars who made their fame off of their family's unique way of living and off the wall personalities. Thirdly, both families have daughters who were featured as children on the show and are now in their early twenties. Most women in their early twenties enjoy posing for photos in tight workout attire such as colorful patterned yoga pants to post to Instagram but in this photo, Cecily is posing as if she is ready to give her reality show family counterparts, Kendall and Kylie some Kompetition, all the way from the Aloha State.
4 Lovin' Hawaiian Life
Whether she's posing with tousled hair and a full face of uncovered fierce freckles for a modelling shoot or smiling while dressed like a tough biker chick in a black motorcycle jacket, sunglasses and a matching hat at a festival, it is all too obvious that life in the Aloha State has been treating her very well and by all accounts, she is taking full advantage of every fun and amazing opportunity available to her. Hawaii is an incredibly popular vacation destination and most people who visit never want to leave to crystal clear blue water and soft sands of the land of volcanoes, yellow hibiscus flowers, and breathtaking scenery so seeing a local to this magical place living it up makes perfect sense and we're all for it. Aloha, Cecily!
3 A Thing For Bling
This photo truly captures the essence of "like mother, like daughter." If there's anything that viewers and fans of Dog, the Bounty Hunter and CMT's Dog and Beth: On The Hunt picked up from the show, it is that Beth is a woman who loves her family, busting bail jumpers and of course, her blinged-out black wardrobe and accessory collection. Everyone knows that blondes look great in black and just like her mother, Cecily takes full advantage. Even though she copies her mother's style, it seems to suit her since Cecily looks awfully confident of herself, giving a small hint of a smile in this sultry selfie. In true Lady Chapman fashion, even Cecily's shirt matches the theme of black meets bling. And in this case, just like mother, this daughter looks every part the powerful woman.
2 Lipsticked Lady
Cecily looks every bit the femme fatale in this photo with her tousled hair, dark red lipsticked pout, and coats of eyeliner. But it is really the look in her green eyes that really tell the story here. She looks like she has been through some tough times but has managed to overcome roadblocks with her exterior tough shell providing a barrier of protection which also prevents her heart from getting too involved so that she doesn't get hurt again. Looking at this photo, you've got to wonder if she will ever be able to get vulnerable enough to put her heart out there? But then again... this could be just a look that she is giving in order to get a cool photo to post to her Instagram account. Nicely done, Cecily.
1 A Chip Off Dog's Block
Who knew that Dog and Beth's little chubby-cheeked sweetheart daughter would grow up to be one to live life on the dangerous side? We're not saying that Cecily Chapman is living life on the dangerous side but she sure looks like it with her sleek black bounty-hunting attire, handcuffs and all. She especially looks the part with her mirror police aviator sunglasses. She posed in the perfect spot, surrounded by a small fleet of identical black SUVs. We can't blame Dog and Beth for feeling a swell of pride when they look at this photo, seeing their daughter come into her own in the family business. She really looks like a chip off of Dog's block here. If the bounty hunting business ever dries up, maybe Cecily can apply for a job with the Secret Service. She's already got the look down.
