Cue the wedding bells…again! Dolly Parton and her hubby, Carl Dean, are celebrating 50 years together this year, and they’re celebrating in a big way: By renewing their vows! Get the details here!
Now that’s a way to commemorate a milestone anniversary! Dolly Parton doesn’t just want to show her husband, Carl Dean, 73, how much she still loves him when their 50th anniversary rolls around on May 30 — she wants to show the world too! The 70-year-old country legend will be getting married to her man once again, and this time she’s doing it big!
“We’re going to get married again!” Dolly told People. “I’ll have a beautiful wedding dress, ’cause I didn’t have a big, long wedding dress when we got married and we’ve got a suit for him, so we’re going to dress up and take a bunch of pictures.”
Dolly revealed that she’ll be selling the sweet pics to benefit her Imagination Literacy charity, but didn’t disclose any other details about their vow renewal. Judging by how happy Dolly sounds about her “second marriage” to Carl, though, it sounds like their love hasn’t still hasn’t fizzled even after 50 years!
Despite Dolly’s superstar status, she and Carl have remained fairly private when it comes to their relationship — something Dolly seemingly wants to change, at least for their huge anniversary. Even with his desire to stay out of her spotlight over the years, Dolly said Carl has always been a fantastic, “supportive” husband.
“He’s like a brother and a father and a friend and a husband and a lover – all of those things to me,” she told the outlet. “I think he’s kind of proud that we’ve been in it this long!”
HollywoodLifers, send your congrats to Dolly and Carl for celebrating 50 years together!
