The 51-year-old Dog the Bounty Hunter star and her husband, Duane Lee "Dog" Chapman, welcomed their first great-grandchild amid Beth's battle with cancer. The reality star shared the news on her Instagram on Friday, alongside sweet photos of her and the baby.

The happy news comes as Beth is undergoing chemotherapy for her throat cancer. A source told ET on Monday that Beth began treatment last month in Los Angeles.

"The [treatments] are going well, but they certainly take their toll on Beth," the source shared. "She's a trooper though and a very tough lady."

Beth found out that her cancer had returned after an emergency surgery she underwent in late November to remove a mass in her throat.
