However, of all her successes, nothing matters to her more than the four children she welcomed from two of her four marriages. Here is all you need to know about Lisa’s big family.
Riley is Lisa’s first daughter and the first granddaughter of the Presley clan. Born in May 1989 from her mom’s marriage to Danny Keough. Following in her mother’s footsteps, Riley broke into the showbiz world as a teenage model.
She made quite some strides walking on the runway for Dolce & Gabbana and featuring alongside her mother and grandmother, Priscilla, on the cover of Vogue Magazine.
Although the 52-year-old welcomed her kids from only two of her marriages, Lisa has quite the love life with some A-listers in Hollywood.
After conquering the world of modeling, she moved on to acting and made her debut in 2010 in “The Runways” and went on to feature in other movies like “Magic Mike,” “Logan Lucky” amongst others. She is happily married to Ben Smith-Peterson, and the duo has been together for more than four years.
Benjamin is the only son of Lisa Marie and the apple of her eyes. Unfortunately, he passed away on July 12, 2020, at the young age of 27.
According to The Sun, he died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, leaving his family, especially his mom, devastated. A spokesperson for the family described Benjamin as “the love of his mother’s life” in a statement to Closer Weekly that read:
“She is entirely heartbroken, inconsolable and beyond devastated but trying to stay strong for her 11-year-old twins and her oldest daughter Riley.”
Like his famous grandfather, Benjamin had music in his DNA and even signed a $5 record-deal with Universal Studios in 2009. Although many people teased him of looking like his grandad, Benjamin always maintained that his music was going to be nothing like that of the rock-and-roll legend.
HARPER AND FINLEY LOCKWOOD
Years after having Benjamin, Lisa gave having kids another shot and welcomed her twin daughter Harper and Finley from her marriage to Michael Lockwood, a music producer.
The 11-year-olds are very dear to their mom as they are often seen in public with her. They also share a close bond with their grandmother, who can’t stop gushing about them in interviews.
LISA’S LIST OF HOLLYWOOD ROMANCE
Although the 52-year-old welcomed her kids from only two of her marriages, Lisa has quite the love life with some A-listers in Hollywood. Per Closer Weekly, Lisa first got married in 1998 to musician Danny Keough, but after two kids and six years together, she filed for divorce in 1994.

The same year, she tied the knot with none other than the King of Pop, Micheal Jackson but they barely lasted two years before they called it quits. In 2002, she had the famous Nicolas Cage walk her down the aisle, but three months later he filed for divorce.
Her final marriage was to music producer Michael Lockwood in 2006, and it happened to be her longest. Unfortunately, she filed for divorce after about a decade together.
