Lisa Marie Presley’s Son Benjamin Is the Spitting Image of Elvis in This Rare Family Photo

Good genes clearly run in this family! On Thursday, Lisa Marie Presley shared a rare family photo with all four of her kids, and fans can’t get over how much Lisa Marie’s son looks just like Elvis Presley. While the resemblance between Lisa Marie and her famous father has always been evident, the resemblance between Elvis and his grandson, Benjamin, is downright uncanny. You might even say the likeness has fans, ahem, all shook up.

Lisa Marie rarely shares photos on social media of her whole brood, but the protective mama switched it up this week by sharing the sweet family snapshot on both Instagram and Twitter. “Mama Lion with cubs,” she captioned the photo featuring herself along with kids Riley Keough, 30, Benjamin Keough, 26, Finley Lockwood, 10, and Harper Lockwood, 10. Per People, the photo seems to be from an earlier get-together — Riley’s 30th birthday celebration at the end of May.

And although the entire family is beautiful, fans couldn’t help noticing the strong family resemblance between Benjamin and his iconic grandfather. “That boy looks just like Elvis!” wrote one commenter. “Beautiful Mama Lion and beautiful cubs! Your son is a twin of your Dad!” said another fan, with another gushing, “It’s so surreal how much your son looks like your dad!”

In addition to (understandably) marveling over the striking resemblance between Benjamin and Elvis, fans expressed their excitement to see Lisa Marie on social media and in good spirits. In August 2018, the talented-artist-in-her-own-right sat down with Today’s Jenna Bush Hager to open up about her past with drug addiction.

Lisa Marie was 45 years old when her addiction began, making it a more recent struggle in her life. It was her four kids, she explained, who helped her through it. “She said that they’re the reason she’s alive. That they have given her a purpose in life and it’s helped her heal,” Bush Hager recounted later to People. Lisa Marie expressed that it was her hope in coming forward with her story that she might help other people through their dark times, too. “I’m not perfect, my father wasn’t perfect, no one’s perfect,” she said, adding, “It’s what you do with it after you learn and then try to help others with it.”

Judging by the happy photo with her children, Lisa Marie looks to be in a good place in her life. Fans are ecstatic to see it — not to mention catch a nostalgic glimpse of the King of Rock ‘n Roll in the face of his grandson.
