Remember the good times Riley Keough paid tribute to her late mother, Lisa Marie Presley, on Mother’s Day.

“I was fortunate to have had the best and most loving mom I could ask for 💕,” The Daisy Jones and the Six Star, 33, wrote about Instagram on Sunday, May 14, alongside a souvenir photo of her parents – Presley and her ex-husband Danny Keough – holding baby Riley.

Sunday is Riley’s first Mother’s Day away from her mother. The late songwriter, who was the only child of Elvis Presley and his ex-wife, Priscilla Presley – died in January at the age of 54 after a cardiac arrest. Lisa Marie is survived by her 77-year-old mother and three daughters. The “Storm & Grace” singer also shared twins Harper and Finley, both 14, with her ex Michael Lockwood. (Lisa Marie and Danny, 58, were also parents to son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27.)

Nearly a week after the Tennessee native died, her family gathered for a memorial service.

“A Letter to My Mama”, Riley’s Husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, read his wife’s eulogy on her behalf during the service on January 22 at Elvis’ Graceland estate. “Thank you for being my mother in this life. I am infinitely grateful to have spent 33 years with you. I’m sure I chose the best mom in the world and I’ve known that for as long as I can remember you.”

He continued at the time: “I remember everything. I remember you bathed me as a baby, I remember you rode me in my car seat listening to Aretha Franklin. I remember how you cuddled me when I came into your bed at night and how you smelled. … I remember how you sang lullabies to me and my brother at night and how you lay with us until you fell asleep. I remember how it felt to be loved by the most loving mother I have ever known.”

The girlfriend experience The graduate’s note also confirmed that she and the Australian-born, 31, had secretly given birth to their first child, a baby girl, in 2022.

“Thank you for showing me that love is the only thing that matters in this life,” Smith-Petersen read on behalf of his wife. “I hope I can love my daughter like you loved me, like you loved my brother and sisters.”

Sunday’s holiday also marks the first time Riley, as a mother, has celebrated Mother’s Day herself. While she and the stuntman enjoyed watching their little one grow, they kept her out of the spotlight.

“Riley wanted to keep her daughter’s birth a secret because [she] and her entire family is so public in every other way,” a source said exclusively Us weekly March. “The possibility of more children is something both Riley and Ben are very open to in the near future.”
