Benjamin Looked A Lot Like His Dad

Lisa Marie felt that all her children had a bit of Elvis in them, but Benjamin resembled him the most.

She said it was uncanny just how much he looked like the king of rock 'n roll.

It is perhaps this likeness that made Benjamin and his mother so close. The pair even had matching tattoos of a Celtic eternity knot, which they got on Mother's Day in 2009. It represents their connection and love, which is eternal.
