On May 29, 1989, Lisa Marie Presley gave birth to her first child, and Elvis‘ first grandchild. She welcomed a beautiful baby girl, and named her Danielle Riley Keough.
Today, that baby girl goes by Riley, and she is a successful actress and model. You may have seen her in a number of notable projects, including Mad Max: Fury Road, The Girlfriend Experience, and American Honey.
Riley has one brother, Benjamin, who Lisa Marie also shares with ex-husband Danny Keough. Lisa Marie also has ten-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, who she shares with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.
All four kids gathered in late May to celebrate Riley’s 30th birthday. Lisa Marie had a special gift to share, and filmed her daughter’s emotional response when she heard it for the first time.
The song “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John is a special one to Lisa Marie and Riley. Lisa Marie called it “Riley and mines” song in the caption to a video she shared.
In the video, Riley can be seen reacting to her surprise gift, which was a recording of “Tiny Dancer” performed by her mom.
Her initial response was emotional, but she absolutely lost it when the song got to the chorus. That’s because Lisa Marie wasn’t the only one singing…Harper and Finley had joined in as well.
You can tell from Riley’s reaction that she was touched to hear her mom and sisters singing together on a song that means so much to her.
Riley shared the same video on her Instagram, and explained that her mom and sisters’ recorded song was part of an even bigger birthday present. She shared that two friends made her an entire “surprise album” for her birthday, and said “this song my mom made for me and my sisters surprised me at the end.”
Her surprise is obvious to anyone who watches the video!
Apparently this isn’t the only time that Lisa Marie has gifted Riley something elaborate for her birthday. During an interview with Jimmy Fallon in 2017, she revealed that Lisa Marie sends “a dancing gorilla in a tutu” if she can’t make it to her birthday.
You can watch her talk all about that in the hilarious video below!
