Presley married musician Danny Keough in 1988 and the following year, they welcomed their first child, Riley Keough. Riley Keough, now 33, is an actor. Her newest project, a Prime Video miniseries titled "Daisy Jones & The Six," is based on the bestselling book of the same name from author Taylor Jenkins Reid, and is slated for a March 2023 release.

Presley called Riley and her younger daughters her "fave people" in a 2018 photo shared on Instagram. Ahead of the release of the "Elvis" biopic honoring her father last year, which starred Golden Globe-winner Austin Butler, Presley also opened up about how the film impacted her kids.

"What moved me to tears as well was watching Riley and Harper, and Finley afterwards, all 3 visibly overwhelmed in the best ... possible way, and so filled with pride about their grandfather and his legacy in a way that I have not previously experienced," the proud mother tweeted last year.

Benjamin Keough was Presley and Danny Keough's second child and her first and only son. He mainly stayed out of the spotlight but appeared in his family's TV special "Elvis by the Presleys" and in the music video for "I Love You Because," a duet between his mother and grandfather.

Presley previously revealed on social media that she and her son shared matching feet tattoos of a Celtic eternity knot that represented their "eternal love" and "eternal bond."
