The Presley kids

Lisa Marie has two children by musician Danny Keough, her first husband. The couple welcomed daughter Danielle Riley (who goes by Riley) in 1989, followed by son Benjamin in 1992. The singer divorced Danny in 1994.

Her second marriage (the most high-profile one) was to Michael Jackson, and she was married to Nicolas Cage. These two short-lived marriages produced no children.

Later, Lisa Marie tied the knot with guitarist Michael Lockwood in 2006. The couple welcomed twin girls, Harper and Finley, in 2008.

The children are the reason she’s alive, Lisa Marie says

Lisa Marie’s fourth marriage was troubled and ended in a bitter divorce, protracted custody battle, and mutual accusations.

Marital unhappiness and pressure of the fame she never asked for pushed Elvis’ daughter into the trap that took her father’s life decades earlier. Lisa Marie struggled with addiction to alcohol, illicit drugs, and prescription pills, and had been in and out of rehabs before she managed to get clean.

What gave her the will to get rid of her destructive habits? It was her family, Lisa Marie said in an interview with Today’s Jenna Bush Hager. The singer said her “children are the reason she’s alive.”

It’s unlikely that Lisa Marie’s youngest ones were able to understand what was happening, but her adult children, Riley and Ben, helped her get through the hard times.

The biggest joy in life

Lisa Marie almost gave up on life, but she didn’t want her children, especially her young daughters, to suffer like she did when her famous dad died unexpectedly when she was only 9 years old. These days, Lisa Marie and her kids are a happy family!

In an interview with The Guardian, the proud mother said her children "are the biggest love of her life" and added that she "wants to be remembered as a good mom."

It sure looks like she's up to the job!
