She may be a busy woman these days, but Priscilla Presley always makes time for her family and her incredible and special grandchildren.
The 74-year-old was married to Elvis Presley, arguably the biggest rockstar on the planet at the time, from 1967 to 1973. The pair had one child, Lisa Marie Presley. Today, the pair’s only daughter has her own kids — Riley, 30, Benjamin, 26, and twin girls, Harper and Finley, 10. And Priscilla is crazy about them, especially her two youngest grandchildren.
“She loves being the person the girls come to for questions about life,” an insider exclusively tells Closer Weekly. “She can’t believe how fast they’re growing and how much they know already. It goes both ways — sometimes Priscilla needs them to answer questions about her cell phone and the internet. She just loves having them around.”
While the Wedding at Graceland actress doesn’t have custody of her grandchildren, “she would if it were ever necessary,” the source adds. “She gladly took care of her granddaughters while Lisa Marie was going through her personal issues.”
Priscilla has always been quite open about her love for her grandkids, and the special bond she shares with Lisa’s young girls. “It’s great, it’s absolutely great. I love it, I love it. Having twins is quite an experience, I have to say,” she once told Us Weekly.
There is clearly a lot of love in the Presley household, and it seems like the kids in the family are filled with joy everyday. Just recently, Lisa, 51, gave her eldest daughter a beautiful birthday gift that featured her and her sisters singing their version of a classic Elton John song.
“Surprise Bday present from me and the girls was to record Riley and mines song together (Tiny Dancer by @Elton john of course) which was emotional enough,” Lisa wrote on Instagram alongside a reaction video of Riley. “But the bigger surprise was when the chorus kicks in of her sisters singing with me.” So great!
