Riley Keough, the luminous granddaughter of rock 'n' roll legends Elvis and Priscilla Presley, is all set to welcome another baby to her growing family. Currently, the doting mother to her one-year-old daughter Tupelo, Keough and her spouse, Ben Smith-Peterson, are on the brink of becoming parents for the second time.

The exclusive scoop was initially brought to light by In Touch. However, there remains some ambiguity surrounding the pregnancy. It's not yet confirmed whether Keough herself is pregnant or if the couple has opted for surrogacy, much like they did for their firstborn, Tupelo.

Keough's Discreet Parenthood Reveal

In the past, Keough and Smith-Peterson have been notably discreet about their personal life, especially concerning the birth of Tupelo. It was only months after her birth that Keough candidly revealed to Vogue, "I have a half-Australian baby." The "Daisy Jones & the Six" actress has been vocal about her admiration for surrogate mothers.

In a heartfelt chat with Vanity Fair for its September edition, she lauded surrogates for their incredible generosity and selflessness. Keough opened up about her decision to choose surrogacy, attributing it to her ongoing battle with Lyme disease.

Reflecting on her journey as a mother, Keough once affectionately remarked about Tupelo, saying, "She's literally like someone shrunk my husband, and that’s our baby." Expressing her deepest maternal desires, she continued, "This is the thing in my life so far that I have really wanted to, quote-unquote, get right.

I understand perfection in parenting might be a myth, but I'm striving to be the best version of a mother for her." With this upcoming addition to their family, fans and well-wishers worldwide are eagerly awaiting more insights into the journey of this iconic next-gen star and her growing family.
