Lisa Marie Presley’s daughter Riley Keough secretly welcomed baby girl

Riley Keough and her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, have welcomed a daughter, the actress’ rep confirmed to Page Six.

Smith-Petersen made the shocking revelation while reading a letter from his wife at Lisa Marie Presley’s memorial service at Graceland on Sunday.

“Thank you for showing me love is the only thing that matters in this life. “I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and sisters,” a letter from Keough to his late mother read in part.

“Thank you for giving me strength, my heart, my compassion, my courage, my humor, my character, my anger, my aggression, my persistence. I am the product of your heart, my sisters are the product of your heart, my brother is the fruit of your heart.”

Smith-Petersen, who married Keough in 2015, did not elaborate on when their daughter was born, or reveal her name.

The little one was the grandson of Lisa Marie, who died tragically last week at the age of 54.

Riley, who was to speak at the memorial, sat in the front while her husband read the touching letter to her.

“I remember you bathing me as a baby, putting me in my car seat and listening to Aretha Franklin … bringing me ice cream after school in Florida,” she recalled.

“I remember you singing me and my brother songs at night, and how you used to sleep with us until we fell asleep.”
