The Presleys are one of the most-talked-about families of the moment right now, thanks to the release of Baz Luhrmanns’ musical biopic Elvis.

While Elvis Presley was alive to enjoy part of his daughter Lisa Marie Presley’s life, (sadly passing when she was just nine years old), he wasn’t able to appreciate the joys that are his five grandchildren.

Interestingly enough, Riley also has a connection down under, having married Aussie stunt performer Ben Smith Peterson in 2015. The pair reportedly met on the set of Fury Road in 2014.

On Instagram, both Riley and Ben aren’t partial to a lovey-dovey post, with Ben often referring to Riley by the nickname “bean”.

On May 29, Keough’s 33rd birthday, Ben shared a sweet photo of he and his wife, writing: “Happy Birthday Beanz. You get better & better every year.” Swoon!

Benjamin Keough

Benjamin Keough was the younger brother to Riley, who sadly died at the age of 27 in 2020.

After the shocking news hit the world, the Presley family revealed Benjamin had taken his own life on July 12.

Presley, who shares Benjamin with her ex-husband Danny Keough, said she was “completely heartbroken” over the death of her son.

In October 2020, on what would have been Benjamin’s 28th birthday, Presley shared some emotional words for him.

“My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven,” she wrote on Instagram. “My heart and soul went with you. The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day. I will never be the same.”

She continued: “Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley.

“I know you would want that. Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much too good for this world.”

Riley also shared a tribute post to Benjamin, sharing a gallery of throwback photos from her wedding day, and their childhood. She captioned the post: “Happy Birthday beautiful angel”.

Following his death, close friend of Benjamin’s, musician Brandon Howard told People that Benjamin had struggled with depression and the “pressure” of his family name.

“Sometimes he struggled with depression, which is a serious thing with [the Coronavirus pandemic],” said Howard, who added that “being a Presley” had likely contributed to the event.

“That kind of pressure is definitely a part of what happened,” he said. “It’s a tough thing when you have a lot of pressure with your family and living up to a name and an image.

“It’s a lot of pressure. It’s almost like you’re pressured into having to be a musician, having to be an actor.”

Finley Aaron Love Lockwood and Harper Vivienne Ann Lockwood

13-year-old twins Finley Aaron and Harper Vivienne are the daughters of Lisa Marie Presley and her last husband, Michael Lockwood.

Presley was married to Lockwood from 2006 to 2016, when their marriage came to a frosty end.

The couple split citing “irreconcilable differences”, with Presley’s then-legal representative Ronald Litz telling People that Lockwood had “taken advantage” of Presley.

“He apparently was in charge of her assets throughout the marriage and didn’t do what he should have done on a fiduciary basis,” Litz said. “He took advantage of her.”

Yet the twins, who were born on October 7, 2008, seem as happy as ever, and have made numerous public appearances alongside their mum and step-sister, Riley.

In particular, in the lead-up to the release of Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis, the twins have often stood side-by-side with their mum at premieres and other events.

As for their own careers? The twins are reportedly yet to pursue any time in acting or music, focussing on their education for the time being.
