Lisa Marie Presley’s Children
Full name: Danielle Riley Keough
Birthday: May 29, 1989 (33)
Father: Danny Keough
Presley’s eldest is the most famous of the bunch. Riley Keough is an actress and model. You’ve probably seen her in films like Magic Mike or The Runaways. Keough’s biggest role was as Capable in Mad Max: Fury Road. She also guest-starred on Riverdale for one episode.
During her mum's memorial service in late January, it was revealed that Riley and her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, secretly welcomed their first daughter at the end of 2022.
"I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters," Ben read at the service, on behalf of his wife.
"Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my empathy, my courage, my sense of humour, my manners, my temper, my wildness, my tenacity. I'm a product of your heart, my sisters are a product of your heart, my brother is a product of your heart."
Full name: Benjamin Storm Keough

Compared to his older sister, Ben Keough was a lot more low-key. He had a couple of acting credits, but nothing major. One thing people have noticed, however, is how much Benjamin looked like Elvis. Lisa Marie agreed, saying that people often stopped her son for photos because of the uncanny resemblance.
Ben tragically passed away in July 2020 aged 27, leaving Lisa Marie "completely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated".

Keeping Elvis’ Spirit Alive
Few industry families will ever match the legacy of Elvis Presley! Thankfully, Lisa Marie worked hard to keep that legacy alive and well. While none of her children will ever carry their grandfather’s famous last name, that’s okay – they’re too busy blazing their own paths.
