Lisa Marie Presley posted a rare family photo that included all four of her children last week, including of Benjamin Keough, who some say bears a strong resemblance to his grandfather, Elvis Presley.

Lisa Marie, the only daughter of Elvis, posted the image on social media.

“Mama Lion with cubs,” she captioned in a photo with Riley Keough, 30; Benjamin Keough, 26; as well as twins Finley Lockwood, 10, and Harper Lockwood, 10.

The photo was apparently from the family’s birthday celebration for Riley at the end of May, but she posted it on June 20.

She also posted a video of Riley getting emotional after receiving a gift from her other siblings.

“Surprise Bday present from me and the girls was to record Riley and mines song (tiny dancer by @eltonofficial) which was emotional enough. The bigger surprise was when the chorus kicks in of her sisters w me. Video of her Raw reaction. Hope you enjoy watching!” Presley wrote.

On Instagram, after she shared the photo, one follower said, “Is that your son?”

She said, “Wow, he looks just like your dad.”

“Your son is the image of your dad,” another said on Twitter. “Sorry, internet. Harper’s more of a “lookalike’ than Ben,” another wrote, referring to one of the twin girls in the picture.

A year ago, Lisa Marie posted a photo of her son in 2012.

Unusual Detail

Elvis Presley’s former wife, Priscilla, revealed that the singer was somewhat of a germaphobe, noting one detail about how he drank his coffee.

“When he drank his coffee, he would always drink it close to the handle and not anywhere else, because everywhere else other people would drink,” Priscilla explained of her husband, according to WGN-9. “He was religious about it, so it was always his cup.”

Priscilla said he was more of a germaphobe when he was a child than when he was an adult.

“Not so much as when he was a child,” she added. “When he was a child he would go to all his relatives’ homes and stay, and his mother would give him his own fork, and his own knife and spoon to bring, but he didn’t like it. He didn’t know for sure if it was clean or not.”
