Mother Riley Keough. Ben Smith-Petersen, the actress’ husband, shared a tribute on behalf of his wife, who was seated in the front row, during a memorial service for Lisa Marie Presley at Graceland in Memphis, Tennessee, on Sunday morning.
“I wish I could love my daughter the same you did for me, my brother, and my sisters. I’m grateful that you gave me my heart, my courage, my humor, my manners, my temper, my wildness, and my tenacity. Your heart gave birth to me, my sisters, my brother, my parents, and my grandparents, “Smith-Petersen remarked as he read his wife’s remarks about his mother-in-law.
Smith-Petersen, who wed Keough eight years ago, did not provide any other information, including the precise date or name of their daughter’s birth. A representative for Keough, 33, told PEOPLE the couple had a girl in 2022.

While filming Mad Max: Fury Road in 2012, Keough, the daughter of the late Presley and musician Danny Keough, got to know Smith-Petersen. Although they were briefly introduced on-site, the two didn’t begin dating until re-shoots in Australia a year later.
In a 2022 essay for Vogue Australia, Keough stated, “My hubby is such a lovely person.” “He’s my best buddy because he’s cool under pressure, loyal, strong, and kind.”
The two rapidly fell in love, and in 2014, Keough and the Australian stuntman announced their engagement. On Facebook, Smith-Petersen posted a picture of Keough at the time wearing a diamond ring with the message, “So that happened.”
In February 2015, little than a year later, the pair exchanged vows. Keough and Smith-Petersen wed for the first time in Nepal, where they constructed a school at the time of their wedding in the United States.

As Keough wrote in her column for Vogue Australia, “The families knew we were getting married, and they said, Let us throw you a Hindu wedding.” “That wedding was especially wonderful and, in some ways, more intimate since it was so lovely. I cried during the wedding. I wasn’t as present at my larger wedding because I was a little apprehensive. However, it was just as beautiful.” The couple, who share identical tattoos, later wed once more on February 4, 2015, in Napa Valley, California.
