Riley Keough33, will likely be leaning on her husband Ben Smith-Petersen for emotional support following the death of her mother Lisa Marie Presley on January 12, especially since they are settling into life as new parents.
The couple – who confirmed they had welcomed a baby daughter in January – met on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road and went on to get married in an intimate candle lit ceremony in 2015. They said ‘I do’ in front of Kristen Stewart, Dakota Johnson, and Riley’s late brother Benjamin, who died from suicide in July 2020.

Benjamin passed away in 2020, five years after Riley’s wedding
Teamed with her hair in loose effortless curls and dewy natural makeup, Riley’s bridal look left her husband emotional.
“We decided to see each other just before the ceremony so we could have a private moment,” Ben said. “Then, when I saw her walk in – for some reason that was the hardest time for me not to cry.”
She later admitted to Vogue that, after a whirlwind romance, the couple actually got married in Nepal weeks before their main wedding, which she described as “intimate and really special.”
Riley explained: “Technically, our first wedding was in Nepal, because we were there building a school a couple of weeks before we got married. The families knew we were getting married and they said, ‘Let us throw you a Hindu wedding.’
“It was so beautiful and, in some way, that wedding was a little more intimate and really special. That wedding, I cried. At my bigger wedding I was a little nervous, I wasn’t as present. But it was still the same as amazing.”
