Images of Elvis Presley's grandson will leave you surprised. The striking resemblance between the King of Rock and his only grandson will trick you into believing Elvis is alive.
The world has gifted us with very few timeless heartthrobs. Celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are some of the few who have left a mark with their evergreen charm, managing to appeal to people of all generations. But no star can make us blush more than the charismatic star, Elvis Presley. Known as the "King of Rock," Elvis has captured the hearts of millions with his unique voice, rock and roll persona and of course those blue eyes and charming smile. Though the King has left us, he has passed his genes to the now 26-year-old grandson Benjamin. The resemblance is so uncanny that it may actually fool you into believing Elvis is still will us.
According to Tip Hero, the grandson of the legendary musician has amazed the fans around the world with his striking similarities to his grandfather, Elvis. Born on October 21st, 1981 in Tampa, Florida to Lisa Marie Presley, the daughter of the musician, Benjamin is a spitting image of the King of Rock.
Lisa, who went on to pursue a career as a singer and songwriter and also marry big names like Michael Jackson, Nicholas Cage, and musician Danny Keough, was always in the limelight. Knowing the pressures of being in the public's eye, the protective mother opted to keep Elvis' only grandson and his sister Danielle Riley away from the spotlight. However, soon enough, Benjamin's striking resemblance to his grandfather ensured he was in the news.
Although Benjamin has remained away from the entertainment industry, he first made headlines in August 2017 during the candlelight memorial vigil at Graceland that marked the 40th anniversary of the singer's death. Fans of the evergreen musician were surprised to see a young man on stage who was spitting image of the legendary Elvis Presley.
His deep blue eyes and inherited Elvis pout remains people of the musician. However, the young man does not have dark locks like his grandfather as Benjamin is naturally blond.
The young man who became famous because of his looks also wants to have a career in music, following the path of his grandfather. Like Elvis, Benjamin is also ambitious about a career in music and has been working on creating music.
His mother Lisa also admitted she is amazed and sometimes "overwhelmed" when she looks at her son who remains her of her father. In an interview with CMT in 2012, Lisa said, “He was at the Opry and was the quiet storm behind the stage. Everybody turned around and looked when he was over there. Everybody was grabbing him for a photo because it is just uncanny,” quoted Tip Hero.
Benjamin who mostly leads a private life has only two appearances credited to him in the past. In 2005, he appeared in the documentary "Elvis by the Presleys" and later was also seen in a small role the animated short, Rod & Barry.
Elvis, one of the most influential artists of the 60s is remembered by people across the globe. His amazing stage presence, energy, and charisma can never be forgotten by his fans. The star who died of a heart attack in 1977 never got the chance to meet his only grandson, Benjamin.
