Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, which hit theaters on October 27, re-imagines the intricacies and hidden history of Elvis’ relationship with his wife, Priscilla. The film, which is now out in theaters, details a lesser known side of the Rock N’ Roll legend—and the only woman he ever married.

In 1954, Elvis met his wife, the titular Priscilla, in Germany. At the time, Elvis was 24, and stationed in the European country with the military. His future wife was just 14 at the time, and was just starting her freshman year of high school. Despite the 10 year age gap, Elvis pursued Priscilla romantically—which resulted in a whirlwind relationship that inspired the new A24 film.

During their decade together, Priscilla gave birth to the couple’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley. However, the actress later had another child with a different partner, after Elvis’ death. Below, see everything to know about Priscilla Presley’s two children.

Lisa Marie Presley was born on February 1, 1968, exactly nine months after the couple officially got married. She lived at Elvis’ iconic Graceland estate for most of her early childhood, according to The Guardian. Lisa was primarily raised by Priscilla, who later moved the pair to Los Angeles (but would frequent Graceland to see Elvis after the couple’s divorce).

Lisa Marie had four children of her own: Riley Keough and the late Benjamin Keough, and twins Harper and Finley Lockwood. She shared Riley and Benjamin with Danny Keough and Harper and Finley with Michael Lockwood.

In January 2023, Elvis’ daughter unexpectedly died from a small bowel obstruction—a longterm complication from bariatric surgery, according to the New York Times. She died at her home in Calabasas, California.

About 10 years after Elvis Presley’s death, Priscilla welcomed her second child, Navarone Garibaldi Garcia, with her longtime partner Marco Garibaldi on March 1, 1987. Priscilla never married Marco, but the couple was together for nearly two decades.

Priscilla met Marco through mutual friends in 1983, and were engaged at one point in their relationship, per the Chicago Tribune. Navarone seems close to his mother, but he is estranged from his music producer father, he previously told PEOPLE.

Navarone has remained mostly out of the spotlight throughout his life—and claims he was not raised in a lavish world, per PEOPLE. Priscilla’s son actually formed a band in 2005 called Them Guns, which is still releasing music to this day (although is not super well-known). In a 2022 interview, the musician told the outlet, “People know ‘about’ me, but they don’t ‘know’ me.”

In the early aughts, Priscilla’s son tried to distance himself from his family, per PEOPLE, but now it seems he’s grown closer to his mother. She attended his wedding in Switzerland in 2022, and posted about it on her Instagram. Her son also attended the premiere of Priscilla in October 2023.

After his half-sister Lisa Marie’s death earlier this year, Navarone told PEOPLE he wanted to step up and be there for his mother. He attended Lisa Marie’s memorial at Graceland on January 22, 2023, according to PEOPLE.

Were Navarone and Lisa Marie Presley close?

It doesn’t seem like Priscilla’s children were very close growing up, according to PEOPLE. The siblings were 18 years apart in age, after all. However, upon the news of Lisa Marie’s death, Navarone posted a tribute to his half-sister on his Instagram page.

“I hope you are now at peace and happy with your Dad and your son by your side,” he wrote in the post’s caption. “I know the past couple years weren’t easy for you, and I wish things had been different between us.”

Navarone also says that of Lisa Marie’s kids, he’s closest to his niece, Riley Keough. “Riley has been so good with the twins,” he told PEOPLE of the Daisy Jones and The Six star’s relationship with her own half sisters, Harper and Finley.
