Dolly Parton recreates Playboy cover for husband’s birthday
Dolly Parton wowed her husband, Carl Dean, on his birthday by donning her Playboy bunny outfit as a special treat.
The country queen, who has been married to Dean for 57 years, shared photos of her all dressed up for fun – complete with bunny ears – on social media.
“It’s always #HotGirlSummer for my husband, Carl,” she wrote in the caption, borrowing rapper Megan Thee Stallion’s catchphrase. “Happy birthday my love!”
In an accompanying video, the singer said, “Remember sometime back I said I was going to pose in Playboy magazine when I’m 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore.
“My husband always loved the original cover of Playboy so I was trying to think of something to do that would make him happy. He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years and I’m not going to talk him out of that and I hope he agrees with me too.”
For his birthday, Dolly, who famously posed for the cover of Playboy in 1978, recreated the look for a new photoshoot, and then took her 1978 cover and put it besides the new version in a photo frame.
The video ended with Dolly presenting Carl with the photo frame while still dressed in the Playboy bunny outfit.
