Dolly Parton is “Aunt Granny” to Her Nieces and Nephews

Monday June 2nd, 2014

Dolly Parton doesn’t have children of her own, but she has always been a mother figure of sorts, she tells People. “I grew up in a big old family with eight kids younger than me, and several of my brothers and sisters came to live with me early on in my life,” she said. “I’ve loved their kids just like they’re my grandkids, and now I’ve got great-grandkids!”

Dolly’s nieces and nephews call her “Aunt Granny,” while her husband, Carl Dean, answers to “PeePaw.” Now that her nieces and nephews have children of their own, she has a new name. “Now I’m ‘GeeGee’, which is ‘great-granny’,” she said. “I often think, it just wasn’t meant for me to have kids so everybody’s kids can be mine.

“I think kids relate to me because they think of me like a Mother Goose or a Fairy Godmother,” she continued. “I’m like a cartoon character — my voice is little and I’m an excitable little person like them! I’m very childlike in that way, in my nature.”

Dolly recently released her 42nd studio album, Blue Smoke, which debuted as her highest charting album to date.
