Riley Keough was photographed stepping out for a rare public appearance with her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, and their daughter in Los Angeles on March 3. The trio was seen walking out of Erewhon Market in Calabasas, Calif. with some recent purchases in their hand. Ben, 31, held their precious daughter — who was born secretly in 2022 and whose name is not known — on his right hip and carried a paper shopping bag with his left arm. Meanwhile, Riley, 33, sipped on a drink and held a box of leftovers alongside her husband of seven years.

Each member of the adorable family was dressed in some sort of blue. The daughter of late singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough looked adorable in loose-fitting, wide-leg denim overalls she wore with a white t-shirt underneath and brown loafers. The stuntman donned blue jeans and a graphic white tee, and their daughter looked precious in a blue dress matched with a white sweater.

Riley and Ben’s baby is the first great-grandchild of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Presley, 77. Fans were not aware of her existence until the Daisy Jones & The Six star mentioned her in the eulogy she wrote for her mother’s funeral in January, which Ben read. “Thank you for showing me that love is the most important things in this life. I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me,” the heartfelt eulogy read. Riley was then photographed carrying her baby off of a plane in Los Angeles following her mother’s services on Jan. 23.

Riley is fairly private about her personal life, but the family outing came just days after she told Stephen Colbert she knew Ben would be her husband by their second date. “When I met my husband, he came out of the gas station on our second date and I thought, ‘I’m going to marry him and have kids with him,’” she admitted on the March 1 episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “We didn’t even say, ‘I love you,’ yet.”

Riley, Ben, and their baby made their rare public appearance as Riley’s relationship with her grandmother, Priscilla, appears to be strained. Priscilla is contesting her late daughter’s will, which she had been removed from in 2016, by arguing that her signature looks “inconsistent”, per the Los Angeles Times.

“Riley has been mourning the loss of her mother and is heartbroken to have to deal with a trust dispute with a family member. Priscilla is adamant that she has a valid case and that she will prevail in court. Riley and Priscilla aren’t communicating at this time, but have been in communication through lawyers,” a person close to the family told Entertainment Tonight in January. “She is heartbroken that this has turned into a public matter and knows her mother would never want this. Riley is very stressed at the moment and has been trying to keep a positive attitude and outlook ahead of her new series coming out.”
