Lisa Marie Presley Welcomes Twin Girls

October 11, 2008 | People

Lisa Marie Presley gave birth to twin girls on Friday, reports Star. Unfortunately they didn't get the date right, since it was Tuesday 7th. The 40-year-old daughter and heir of Elvis Presley welcomed her daughters with 47-year-old musician husband Michael Lockwood by her side at Los Robles Hospital and Medical Center in Thousand Oaks, California. One baby weighed 5 pounds (2.7 kg), 15 ounces and the other came in at 5 pounds and 2 ounces (2.3 kg). A statement released Saturday says Presley gave birth by Caesarean section. Lisa Marie’s two older children, Riley, 21, and Ben, 16, from her first marriage to Danny Keough, were also present for the twins’ arrival.

“Lisa Marie is mom to four now! She’s feeling good, a little tired too,” a family friend reveals. “She is so happy and Michael is ecstatic. He’s wanted to be a dad for so long. This is his dream come true…. The babies are healthy and beautiful. Ben was seen pushing them down the hall in their cart and cooing to them.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!

I can't believe your source is that trash mag The Star! They don't even have the information right. The twin girls were born Tues. the 7th, not on the 10th. That is when the scum rag received the news. I would trust Riley to be more accurate than the Star.

There is a picture of Lisa following the norwegian coverage of the birth. She looks quite bad, but then again it was twins, after all... :D

How are you supposed to look after delivering babies? Heaven forbid you forget your lipstick & mascara?

Espen, that pic is from early December last year! The twins were probably still in Michael's... :-)

I always felt disappointed that Lisa Marie never had any kids when she was married to Michael Jackson. Can you imagine how they would have turned out? (Yikes!)

It is nice to know that at least half of the people who regularly email this site are sincere with their good wishes & can leave the attitude behind.

Lex: lol - ok so she just *looked* like she just had been given birth then. That's even worse. :D Oh and congrats, Lisa. Nevermind my comments dear - I don't look too good myself. ;)

Ruthie, thoroughly agree with you ! Thankfully you don't have to be Einstein to spot those vindictive saddos. Again, many congratulations to Lisa and all the family!
