Dolly Parton fans are very aware, the singer and songwriter is married to her husband, Carl Thomas Dean, since 1966, but the two never had children.

Dolly was one of twelve children, which can lead people to wonder why they never had their own children. Has Dolly ever talked about the matter? After all, we know that she has a weakness for children: she is one of the founders of Imagination Library, an organization that promotes literacy by donating books to children around the world. She has also released an album for children, I Believe In You.

She and her husband also helped raise several of her younger brothers and sisters, and many of her nieces and nephews, according to It's Rosy. He once told People: “I grew up in a big family with eight children younger than me and several of my brothers and sisters came to live with me from the beginning of my life. I have loved your children as if they were my grandchildren, and now I have great grandchildren! "

In an interview with Country Rebel, Parton shared that she is a mother to everyone; And that does not necessarily mean having your own children. "God has a plan for everything," he said. “I think it was probably his plan for me not to have children, so that everyone's children could be mine. And they are now. ”


In a 2014 interview with Billboard, the singer was asked if she regrets not having had children. She said she used to do it, but she doesn't do it anymore. “At first, when my husband and I went out, and then when we got married, we assumed we would have children. We weren't doing anything to stop it. In fact, we thought maybe we would. We even had names if we had them, but it didn't work out that way. Now I say: "God did not want me to have children so that all children could be mine."

I am very close to my family, five of my younger brothers and sisters lived with me and Carl for many years, and we are very close to our nieces and nephews. Now that Carl and I are older, we often say: “Aren't you glad we didn't have children? Now we have no children to worry about. ”

Dolly married Carl Thomas Dean in 1966 in Ringgold, Georgia. Dean is notoriously private and rarely accompanies his wife to events. However, he has always supported her.

Parton tells People, "He's always supporting me and when I don't try to drag him into it ... He's always been my biggest fan behind the scenes, but he's at home." I don't think they are probably showing much of this on television and if they do, I could see it "

The couple met when they were only 18 years old. In another interview with People, Dolly Parton joked: “I always joke and laugh when people ask me what is the key to my long marriage and my lasting love… I always say Aleja Go away!’ And there is a lot of truth to that. I travel a lot, but we really enjoy ourselves when we are together and the little things we do, ”she said.
