The enchanting musical voice of Elvis Presley leaves people feeling nostalgic. For many missing the charisma of Elvis, arguably the most important pop-culture figure of the 20th century need look no further than Elvis Presley grandson Benjamin Keough. Born October 21st, 1981 Benjamin bears an uncanny resemblance to his famous grandparents, Elvis and Priscilla Presley.
Benjamin Keough was born miles away from Graceland in Tampa, Florida. Ben’s mother, Lisa Marie Presley followed her father, Elvis’s footsteps with a career as a singer-songwriter, while her son has remained mostly out of the spotlight. Only two appearances credited to Ben, appearing as himself in the documentary, ‘Elvis by the Presleys‘ in 2005 and a small role in the animated short, Rod & Barry. Ben’s sister, Riley Keough made a mark in the entertainment industry with many film and TV credits to her name.
Although Benjamin has remained mostly out of the entertainment industry, his resemblance to his grandfather Elvis Presley continues keeps him in the headlines. His dark brown hair, deep blue eyes and marital status as single mark him as a socialite. No wonder many women fall for the libra offspring of the Presley heritage.

It’s all in those blue eyes. Taken many years ago at the ‘Lilo and Stitch’ movie premiere (never saw that one lol) we see his daughter, Lisa Marie Presley with her children Riley and Ben.

At 24 years of age, Benjamin shares the dreamy blue eyes and famous Presley pout with his late rock star grandpa.
Keough makes infrequent public appearances, but when he does come out, fans are quick to comment on Elvis and Benjamin’s similarities.
For Lisa Marie, she is always struck with a pang of nostalgia every time she looks at her son. She mentions, “He does [ look so much like Elvis!] He was at the Grand Ole Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage. Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny.” She also mentions feeling overwhelmed at the sight of her son.

The ‘only thing’ 😉 that differentiates Elvis from Ben is their hair color. While Elvis was known for his charming jet black hair, Benjamin has a slightly lighter hue. In case he alters that, they would become completely identical.
