When Elvis Presley passed away in 1977, he left behind a daughter – Lisa Marie. What he didn’t know is that he’d leave behind four grandchildren as well.
In 1989, Lisa Marie and her first husband Danny Keough had a daughter Riley and three years later, a son named Benjamin. In 2008, Lisa Marie had twin daughters Vivienne and Finley with now-estranged husband Michael Lockwood.
Someone who is incredibly proud of the four children, other than mom Lisa Marie of course, is their grandma, Priscilla Presley. Just recently, she gushed over the twins to Us Weekly saying, “They’re little girls experiencing life and having fun.”
The photo above that Lisa Marie posted in June got everyone talking about her son Benjamin and his likeness to his late grandfather. Fans online were saying how Benjamin and Elvis could pass for twins!
According to Us Weekly, the fans aren’t alone. Priscilla said, “I see a little of Elvis in Benjamin.”
And apparently, Benjamin loves that he looks like Elvis.
“He strives for that so we don’t make a really big deal about it. There’s a resemblance, but we just let him be Ben, which I think is beautiful so that he can find out what he wants to do and be who he is,” she said.
