Dog the Bounty Hunter star Beth Chapman has passed away at the age of 51. Her husband, Duane “Dog” Chapman, shared the news with fans on Twitter.

“It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain. Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”

Her daughter Bonnie also shared the sad news with friends and fans. Her latest photo update, which includes a series of pictures with her mother, now reads: “So thankful to call you my mother. Rest in peace, Mom. I love you so much.”

The news comes days after the family shared a hopeful update through their spokesperson.

Beth is survived by husband Dog and their children, Cecily Chapman, Bonnie Chapman, Garry Chapman, and Dominic Davis.

Duane “Dog” Chapman is continuing to update fans on the health of his wife and fellow Dog the Bounty Hunter star, Beth Chapman. Beth is reportedly still in a medically induced coma after being hospitalized Friday. After having difficulty breathing and momentarily passing out, she was put in a coma to spare her from pain during treatment for throat cancer, family spokesperson Mona Wood-Sword told the Associated Press.

On Monday, Dog shared a photo of Beth’s hand-with bedazzled nails-from the hospital with the caption, “You all know how she is about HER NAILS!!” He then tweeted this, seemingly referring to a TMZ report that her condition is grave: “90 percent of what you’re hearing is fake news. I don’t mean to be nasty, but some are filling in the blanks.”

In a statement Monday, Wood-Sword said of Beth and the family, “Duane and the family feel she’s such a fighter, she could get better. The family still has hope.”

Late Tuesday night, Beth’s daughter Bonnie shared a series of photos of her parents with the caption “So thankful to call you my mother.” The first photo shows Bonnie holding her mother’s hand, while the next few show her parents posing, Beth floating in a tube on what looks like a river, and a photo of her and her mom from graduation. Fans left comments telling Bonnie they’re praying for her mother’s recovery.
