Elvis’s Granddaughter Engaged — Congratulations to Riley Keough!
Hope Riley Keough has a pair of blue suede shoes; she’s going to need something of that particular hue soon! The 25-year-old is engaged!
Ben Smith-Petersen on Facebook
The eldest grandchild of the late Elvis Presley, Riley and her fiancé, Ben Smith-Petersen, announced their happy news with a bedroom selfie on August 14. “So that happened,” Ben captions the Facebook snapshot of him and his lady love disheveled in bed with Riley’s engagement ring on full display. The very best thing about this photo, though? The pet paw sneaking up from the bottom part of the frame.
Riley, who is Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter with first husband Danny Keough, met her beau while both were working on upcoming thriller Mad Max: Fury Road. She plays Capable alongside Zoe Kravitz’s Toast, Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa, and Nicholas Hoult’s Nux. Ben, meanwhile, is a stuntman.
“They’re perfect for each other,” a source tells Us Weekly of the newly engaged couple. “So happy for them,” another source adds of the two. “They joked about having a dog ‘baby’ together now and how it was just a matter of time until they made it official.” Dog baby, huh? Guess that explains the mystery paw.
Congratulations to Riley and Ben on their engagement!
