The famed country songstress has shared a rare photo with her fans of her husband of 55 years, Carl Thomas Dean.
The 75-year-old shared the snap on Instagram, in which Dean seems to be wearing a shirt that’s been digitally edited to include several pictures of her.
“Find you a partner who will support you like my Carl Dean does!” Parton captioned the sweet photo.
Fans quickly shared their adoration for the image, with one writing, “Carl Dean is super handsome!”
“Hahaha the queen of photoshop! Y’all are adorable,” another commented, noting that is “may be the first time” they’ve seen a picture of Parton’s husband.
“What a love story,” another added.
Parton and Dean first met at a Nashville laundromat the day after she arrived in the city.
They married in 1966 and renewed their vows in 2016 in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary.
Parton’s romantic photo also serves as a promotion of the Dolly Vintage Collage Tee, which is on sale for approximately $47 on her website.
The country star opened up about her rarely-seen husband last year while laughing off rumours that he was fictional.
“A lot of people have thought that through the years, because he does not want to be in the spotlight at all,” Parton told Entertainment Tonight.
“It’s just who he is. He’s like, a quiet, reserved person and he’s figured if he ever got out there in that, he’d never get a minute’s peace and he’s right about that.”
When asked about how her marriage has lasted for so long, she said it was, “Because I stay gone”.
“And there’s a lot of truth in that — the fact that we’re not in each other’s faces all the time,” she explained. “But we do have a great respect and admiration for each other. We both have a great sense of humour. So, we have a lot of fun.”
