The Honolulu nuptials were filmed for the couple’s reality TV show. Earlier this month, Dog popped the question to his new girlfriend Francie Frane, just months after they started dating.
The widower got down on one knee at a romantic dinner at their home, with the TV legend telling The Sun he’s so happy he wants to have the ‘biggest wedding there’s ever been,’ open to all his fans, in what he says will be ‘one hell of a party’.
Francie spoke about the moment Dog got down on one knee at their home, where they are self-isolating together.She said: ‘I wasn’t expecting it at all. think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit.
‘So when I came in I was like, “Wow, this is awesome”. Then he said, “Come in, sit down because I need to talk to you”.’So I put all the food in the kitchen and I came in and he said, “I know that God brought you into my life and I don’t want to spend one moment of it without you”.’
