Dolly doesn’t speak often about her personal life.
According to NZherald, in a recent Australian interview on “The Sunday Project,” Dolly mentioned her husband’s health while responding to the remake of her Playboy cover that she had done for husband Carl Dean’s 79th birthday.
“My husband has not been feeling well for quite a while, and I’ll do anything that I can to make him feel better and lift his spirits and everything. He’s always thought I was beautiful,” says Parton.
Dean has been a behind-the-scenes type of figure in Dolly’s life with some speculating their relationship was “unconventional,” however Parton says Dean is just a “homebody.”
