Dolly Parton surprises husband Carl for his birthday by recreating her “Playboy” cover

Dolly Parton celebrated her husband Carl Dean’s birthday on July 20 by giving him a nostalgic present. Parton shared a video of herself on Instagram in a Playboy bunny-inspired costume, sharing the surprise she gave to her husband along with the caption: “It’s always #HotGirlSummer for my husband, Carl 💝 Happy birthday my love!”

In 1978, Parton posed for Playboy wearing the signature Playboy ‘bunny’ outfit on the cover of the magazine’s October 1978 edition. Parton said in the video: “You are probably wondering why I dressed like this and it’s for my husband’s birthday. Remember sometime back I said I was going to pose on the ’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 and I’m not going to try to talk him out of that. 

Dolly then held up a plaque that included pictures of both Parton’s original 1978 cover, and a new current portrait of herself in the outfit.  She added: “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,” she said with a wink at the camera.
