It's hard to believe that the late Elvis Presley has a granddaughter old enough to be dating let alone married, but the 22-year-old daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, Riley Keough, is all grown up and engaged to British actor Alex Pettyfer!
The pair have been dating for about six months after hooking up as costars on "Magic Mike," a comedy flick about a male stripper. The couple was photographed locking lips in October, and on Monday the couple was spotted having lunch at Le Petit Four in L.A with the model-actress displaying her engagement ring.
The actor has dated other starlets, Emma Roberts and Dianna Agron, while the eldest grandchild of Elvis has been romantically linked with Jonah Hill and Ryan Cabrera. It seems awfully fast to seal the deal, especially considering the many failed relationships in the Presley family.
Elvis and Riley's grandmother, Priscilla Presley, divorced after five years of marriage, but it's their daughter and Riley's mother, Lisa Marie, who has famously married and divorced several times.
The now 44-year-old singer and songwriter married Danny Keough in 1988 when she was just 20. The pair met and fell in love while studying at The Scientology Center. Lisa Marie was pregnant with Kiley when they wed during a family ceremony at Hollywood's Church of Scientology. They divorced in 1993.
One of the most bizarre couplings in Hollywood history occurred when the Princess of Rock 'n Roll wed the Michael Jackson just a few weeks after her divorce was final to Keough. Although they met when she was just a child, they reportedly developed a friendship in 1992 and the King of Pop proposed just a few months after they began dating. They married in the Dominican Republic on May 26, 1994.
The marriage crumbled quickly, and the "Dirty Laundry" singer filed for divorce in 1996. Lisa Marie wed for the third time in 2002 to actor Nicholas Cage after only a ten day engagement. After just 108 days of wedded bliss, the actor filed for divorce.
The mother of four married her guitarist, Michael Lockwood, in January of 2006, and the couple are still together today. Perhaps the fourth time is the charm?
We can only hope that Riley has learned a little something from her mother's past relationships and will take a little time before ultimately walking down the aisle with her new fiance.
