The singer shared a video on Twitter in honor of her husband’s birthday, noting that she always wanted to pose for Playboy a second time.

“Today is July 20,” Parton explains in the video. “It’s my husband Carl’s birthday and you’re probably wondering why I’m dressed like this. Remember some time back I said I was going to pose for Playboy magazine when I was 75? Well, I’m 75 and they don’t have a magazine anymore but my husband always loved the original cover of Playboy, so I was trying to think of something to do to make him happy. He still thinks I’m a hot chick after 57 years — and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that.”

“I did a little photoshoot in this little outfit and I had a cover made of the new Dolly,” the singer continues. “The first one, remember this? I was kind of a little butterball in that one. Well, I’m string cheese now. But he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese… I hope.”

Parton then shared a picture of herself giving her husband the gift, providing fans with a rare glimpse of the back of his head.

Despite being married since 1966, Parton and husband Carl Dean, a retired businessman, have rarely been photographed together, with Dean preferring to stay out of the spotlight. Parton has even joked that Dean has only seen her perform once in his life.

In March, Parton went viral after receiving a dose of the Moderna vaccine – a COVID-19 vaccine that she personally helped finance.
