Lisa Marie Presley called her daughters Finley, Riley, and Harper her "loves" while writing about them.
Finley Aaron Love Lockwood, Lisa Marie Presley's daughter stayed away from the limelight throughout her life. The only appearances she has made are on her mom's Instagram, sharing beautiful moments with the late singer. An October 2018 post, indicated a strong and loving bond among the Presley as they prepared to be part of a "special event" together. Finley and her sisters, Riley and Harper, posed with their mom in front of a dressing table full of makeup products. Lisa called her daughters her "loves" in her caption.
In another post on Christmas eve of 2018, Lisa shared a lovely family photo of Finley, Harper, Riley, and herself, smiling up at the camera. They had taken the picture after enjoying the "Nutcracker" ballet, as Lisa revealed, truly enjoying the Christmas spirit and referring to Finley and her siblings as her "fave people in the world." Finley was born in October 2008 through a C-section to then-40-year-old Lisa and her ex-husband, Michael Lockwood, 46. She had previously been married to Danny Keough, Michael Jackson, and Nicolas Cage.
As per The Hollywood Reporter, when she was pregnant with Finley and her twin, Lisa wanted to keep the pregnancy private. However, she was compelled to reveal the good news on her MySpace page after a tabloid attacked her weight in March of 2008, according to PEOPLE. During an interview with Healthy Living Magazine, Lisa spoke discussed her parenting style and said that she had compartmentalized her life. The "ferociously protective" mom of four explained that she kept her celebrity and family lives separate. Lisa also kept Finley and her siblings "very close" and grew anxious if they were too far away from her. She made sure they had their own rooms wherever she went but she mostly preferred being in one room with them as much as possible.
According to US Weekly, Lisa's older son, Benjamin Keough died by suicide in 2020. It was a shocking loss for the family, as Benjamin had loved and adored his sisters and was protective of them. Lisa struggled with Benjamin's death, and his dad moved back in with her afterward. Honoring National Grief Awareness Day, she penned an essay discussing how difficult it was to navigate her grief. During this time, their daughters gave her strength to keep going, as she said to PEOPLE: "It's a real choice to keep going, one that I have to make every single day and one that is constantly challenging, to say the least ... But I keep going for my girls."
Finley's parents officially divorced in 2021, and her dad remarried celebrity hair and makeup artist Stephanie Hobgood. Despite her parents' separation, Finley and her sister remained on good terms with Michael as the girls attended his and Stephanie's wedding in October 2022.
Now, their mom passed away due to cardiac arrest earlier this month. Although the loss brought much heartbreak, their hardships are not over yet, especially for Finley and Harper, with a looming custody battle between multiple family members, reported US Weekly.
