Dolly Parton, 75, looks amazing as she dresses up in Playboy bunny outfit for hubby Carl’s birthday

They’ve been married for 57 years.

And the sizzle between Dolly Parton and her husband Carl Dean has clearly not faded with time.

On Tuesday, the country music superstar, who’s 75, dressed up in a Playboy bunny outfit for her hubby as a special treat on his birthday.

‘It’s always #HotGirlSummer for my husband, Carl,’ she tweeted. ‘Happy birthday my love!’

Wow! Dolly Parton, 75, dressed up in a Playboy bunny outfit for hubby Carl as a special treat on his birthday Tuesday and shared he still thinks she’s a ‘hot chick’ after 57 years of marriage

Dolly’s very ample and very famous assets were front and center in the costume which also accentuated her tiny waist.

She wore bunny ears on top of her signature blonde hair and paired the bustier outfit with long gloves and a little white bow tie at the collar.

In an accompanying video on Twitter, the Jolene hitmaker explained: ‘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 any more.

‘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,’ she added with a giggle.

Big surprise: As she wished Carl a happy birthday on Twitter, the country music superstar posted a video explaining to her fans what she was up to and why

Happy birthday! Dolly ended the video with a picture of herself presenting Carl with her gift while still dressed in the outfit. Her husband, who has remained notoriously private throughout her incredibly successful career, is shown from behind as he sits in a chair

Dolly famously posed for the cover of Playboy in 1978 and for Carl’s birthday present, she did a photo shoot in her bunny costume and presented him with a framed copy of that cover alongside her new mocked up cover.

‘In the first one, I was kind of a little butterball,’ she quipped. ‘Well, I’m string cheese now but he’ll probably think I’m cream cheese I hope.’

In an interview with 60 Minutes Australia in March 2020, Dolly had joked about doing a second cover for Playboy when she turned 75.

She had made history with her 1978 cover as the first country music star to pose for the magazine and an inside article ran for 17 pages.

Dolly and Carl met in Nashville and started dating in 1966 when she was 18 and he was 21.

They married two years later in a small ceremony in a Baptist church in Georgia with only her mother and the preacher and his wife present.

As her recording career took off, Carl made it clear that he wanted to remain out of the spotlight and that’s the way it has been ever since.

‘He just don’t have any desire to be in show business,’ Parton said in her 1978 Playboy interview. ‘He don’t want to go out to the supermarket and have people say, ‘That’s Dolly Parton’s husband.”

In 2015, the star explained to People: ‘We’re completely opposite, but that’s what makes it fun. I never know what he’s gonna say or do. He’s always surprising me.’

She added: ‘My husband is a good man, first of all. He’s a deep person, but he has a great and warped sense of humor. He makes me laugh and entertains me. He’s very secure within himself.’

Dolly continued: ‘He wants to be mostly around the house. He knows I’m just the opposite. I can’t go enough places. I can’t do enough things. He loves that. He’s independent. He doesn’t need me in his face, and it’s the same with me.

‘But when we’re together, we have enough things in common that it works. We love the simple life. We can be calm and just have a good time.’

So in love: In May 2016, to mark their 50th wedding anniversary, the couple renewed their wedding vows in front of family and friends at the chapel on their estate in Nashville
