Country singer Dolly Parton wanted to have a family but could not, as she gave priority to her career. The 65-year-old singer, who has been married to Carl Dean since 1966, said that it was worth sacrificing motherhood for her personal singing career.
“People always ask me if it's worth what I've sacrificed and it absolutely is. I've gone through a lot. You give up a lot to make it and I did but I don't have any regrets. I would have liked to have had children but it wasn't meant to be," The Sun quoted the singer as saying.
Dolly also gave the credit of her determination and fearlessness to her brothers. “I was always strong with them around. I could hold my own and I understood men, I was never afraid of them. I never had to sell myself or sleep with anyone I didn't want to just to get my music across. I always felt they would be lucky to have my music so we could both make a lot of money," she said.
