Lisa Marie Presley is a popular name known worldwide for her musical talents and for being the sole heir of Elvis Presley. Very few people know about Lisa Marie’s devotion to her four children.


Lisa Marie, born February 1, 1968, is an iconic gem in the music industry. She owes a part of her success to the fact that her father, Elvis Presley, was an internationally known legend.

Lisa Marie has been married four times to men of great reckoning in the entertainment world. From two of those marriages, she is a mother to four beautiful children.

Her first marriage was to American musician Danny Keough in 1988. The union produced two children: a daughter, Riley Keough, and a son, Benjamin Storm. Sadly, some two years after Benjamin’s birth in 1992, the couple parted ways.

Presley then moved on to marry Michael Jackson in 1994, but it only lasted for two years. Her third marriage was to Hollywood star Nicolas Cage, a union that lasted for about three months. 

Her last marriage took place on January 22, 2006, to American guitarist Michael Lockwood. The 10-year union produced twin daughters, Harper Vivienne Ann and Finley Aaron Love.



Lisa Presley and Danny welcomed their first child, daughter Riley, on May 29, 1989. The brunette bombshell has grabbed her share of the limelight as an actress and a model. Riley catapulted to fame after appearing in hit movies like "Mad Max: Fury Road" and "Magic Mike."

Apart from acting and donning the ramp, Riley is a hotshot on Instagram as she keeps her 400 thousand followers entertained and updated with her content.

Like her career, the actress has tasted success in her personal life too. Riley tied the knot with Ben Smith-Peterson in 2015.



Lisa Marie once took immense pride and commented on her son, Benjamin's, striking resemblance with his grandfather. She'd previously described his resemblance to her famous father as "just uncanny."

She had a close relationship with Benjamin, whose middle name was Storm—the inspiration behind the title track on Lisa Marie's third album, "Storm & Grace." Unfortunately, Benjamin died on July 12, 2020.

However, manager Roger Widynowski didn't reveal further details about his death, except the fact how hard it was for Lisa Marie to process her son's death:


"She's completely heartbroken, inconsolable, and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her eldest daughter, Riley." 



Lisa Marie's son, Benjamin Keough, reportedly "struggled with depression" before his passing, family friend Brandon Howard revealed.

As Elvis Presley's grandson, Benjamin experienced a lot of "pressure." Brandon disclosed that Benjamin battled a lot of pressure to live up to his family's image and reputation:

"It is a tough thing when you a lot of pressure with your family and living up to a name and an image."



In 2008, Lisa Marie and her then-husband, Michael, welcomed twin daughters Harper and Finely. However, the ambitious celebrity mom ensures to keep them away from the spotlight, considering they're still young.

It's not often that they're spotted out and about. Fortunately, proud grandma, Priscilla Presley can't help but disclose adorable details about her twin granddaughters: 

"I can't believe they're so smart. I mean, they can handle the phone better than I can. They know how to Google already, they know how to draw things." 



Despite the horrible circumstances of their parents' divorce, twin daughters Harper and Finley believe that they can always count on each other.

However, it's important to point out that they're not identical but rather fraternal twins. Speaking to the Today show hosts, Priscilla Presley revealed that her granddaughters are quite talented.



It may have taken years and lots of heartbreak, but there is no argument that Lisa Marie has risen to become a very established woman both career-wise and as a family woman. 

It is no wonder that Lisa Marie never shies away from talking about her children. She has even mentioned that they are her reason for “staying alive.”



According to Fabiosa, she had felt hopeless during and after the nasty divorce battle with Lockwood. The failure of her fourth marriage had catapulted her into a dark chasm, one that pushed her into an addiction to alcohol and substance abuse.

It was a slightly rough ride, but after lots of rehab sessions, she finally became clean. That was no mean feat, and she has named her children, especially the thought of her little twins being alone, her source of encouragement all through the battle. Her much older kids, Riley and Benjamin, understood her even more and helped her the best they could.


Lisa Marie knows she's lucky as she fondly described her kids as “the biggest love of her life" and also went on to explain that she wants them to remember her as a good mother.

We think she is doing a great job already! There is no doubt about it as Lisa Marie spoke of her love and adoration for them. Her achievements, both career-wise and philanthropic-wise, are good enough to deem her a good mama!
