Who Is Benjamin Keough? Twitter Can't Get Enough of the Elvis Presley Look-a-Like

More than 40 years after the Elvis Presley's passing and the King of Rock 'n' Roll's good looks live on in grandson Benjamin Keough.

Following a family picture posted Thursday by Elvis Presley's daughter, Lisa Presley, Twitter users had to do a double-take after seeing her son, Benjamin.

Keough, 26, who is standing on the far right—with his mom and sisters Riley Keough, Harper and Finley Lockwood—looks to be a spitting image of his famous grandfather.

"Your son is a twin of your Dad," one Twitter user commented. "Nice family!"

"Your son looks like Elvis! Awesome picture," another person added.

Benjamin is the son of Presley and musician Danny Keough, who were married from 1988-1994. Presley is now married to American musician Michael Lockwood. His older sister Riley, who just turned 30 in May, is a rising star in her own right, having played significant roles in 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road and the Starz series The Girlfriend Experience.

Not much is immediately known about Presley's son, however, his mother — who was briefly married Michael Jackson after her split from Benjamin and Riley's father — acknowledged her son's resemblance to her father in 2012.

"He does [look so much like Elvis]! He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage," Presley told CMT at the time. "Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny," she explained. "Sometimes I am overwhelmed when I look at him."

It's not immediately clear whether the handsome young Keough will follow the path of his musical family, but mother Presley told Huffington Post that "he's doing his own thing right now."

"I'm going to let him decide when he wants to go out and do what he wants to do," she added in 2013.

While Keough seems to remain private, his sister Riley opened up to The Guardian about their upbringing in 2017.

"[We] grew up very privileged with my mother, but my dad didn't live like that. And I think experiencing both sides has been helpful," Riley said at the time. "My father had mattresses on the floor of his apartments. He lived in cabins and trailer parks. He just didn't have much money."

It's not immediately clear if Keough remains in contact with his father but Presley revealed in a 2003 interview that the musician remains her best friend.

"Danny is my best friend, always has been, always will be," Presley said to The Commercial Appeal. "I love him unconditionally, but we are not together. It's not like that."
