Her mother Priscilla Presley confirms in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that her daughter is pregnant with twins and due to give birth in the fall.
Previously issuing a "confirmation under the gun" that she's pregnant with husband Michael Lockwood's child back in March, it was just recently that it was confirmed that Lisa Marie Presley is having twins. To Entertainment Tonight her mother shared some details, including that the babies are due in the fall.
Lisa's actress mother Priscilla Presley broke the news of the twins, saying her daughter actually "wanted it really to be kept a secret for a long time." She went on adding, "And I think women should, because they should be able to announce what they're having and when it's time to make the announcement."
Twins actually run in the Presley family. Lisa's famous father, the late Elvis Presley, had a twin brother. His brother was stillborn and given the name Jesse Garon. Priscilla too has younger brothers who are twins.
Speaking on Lisa's twins, Priscilla commented "It's a shock because you think, 'twins, oh my gosh, what are we going to do with them?'" The expectant grandmother continued saying, "I even told her, if you don't want twins, I will take one and make life easier for you!"
The twins will be Lisa's first children with husband Lockwood, who serves as her guitarist and music producer. She also has two other teenage children, daughter Riley and son Benjamin with ex-husband Danny Keough.
Speculation about Lisa's pregnancy first surfaced in late February after the Daily Mail published unflattering photographs of her and alleged that she had an unhealthy appetite. She soon thereafter issued a confirmation on her MySpace Celebrity blog in early March that she and Lockwood are expecting their first child together.
