Ben - whose father is singer-songwriter Danny Keough and sister is actress Riley Keough - kept a low profile throughout the years, but recently went viral for looking almost identical to his famous grandfather.

Lisa previously addressed the similarity, saying: "Ben does look so much like Elvis. He was at the 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."

Lisa Marie Presley, 52, is the only child of the legendary singer and actor, who died in 1977 at age 42.
