He is one of Elvis Presley’s less known descendants but grandson Benjamin Keough has startled many people, starting with his own mother because of his uncanny resemblance to his grandfather.
The 25-year-old is very much a private person, something he has in common with his mother, Elvis only daughter Lisa Marie Presley, 50, although for her it has been way more difficult to stay out of the spotlight.
But on his very scarce public appearances, always beside his mother or in some event related to the legacy of his grandfather, people can’t help but notice that Keough is the spitting image of the late King of Rock and Roll.
As Do You Remember has reported, although Lisa Marie has always been known for her incredible likeness to her famous father, she is the first to admit that Keough holds the most unbelievable resemblance to the singer.
‘He does [ look so much like Elvis] He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage. Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there,’ Lisa Marie told CMT.
‘Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny. Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him,’ she added.
Lisa Marie has four children, but all of Keough’s siblings are girls, so as much as them or their mother may look like Elvis, Keough is the only one who could pass as the rockstar’s twin.
Like his mother and his grandfather, Keough has that lopsided grin, the same chin, and same blue eyes, with a shape much like Elvis. The only major difference is that Keough is naturally blonde, unlike his grandfather.
Keough’s choice of a career is unclear at the moment, but his mother has explained that she trust him to do his own thing and she will be there to support him in anything he decides to do with his life.
