Lisa Marie Presley pregnant with twins

First it was Julia Roberts, then Jennifer Lopez, followed by Brad and Angelina and, now, Lisa Marie Presley is joining the twins team.

The 40-year-old daughter of Elvis Presley has confirmed she is expecting twins in the autumn with husband Michael Lockwood.

The star already has two children – daughter Riley, 19, and son Benjamin, 15 – with ex Danny Keough.

Entertainment Tonight first broke the news and Lisa Marie's mum Priscilla told the network: 'She wanted it really to be kept a secret for a long time. And I think women should, because they should be able to announce what they're having when it's time to make the announcement.'

Speculation about Lisa Marie's pregnancy first appeared in the Daily Mail when they printed unflattering pictures of her and alleged that she had an unhealthy appetite.

Presley sued for libel, and the paper later apologised.

At the time, Presley hit back by admitting that she was, in fact, pregnant, and told People magazine: 'Yes, I am swollen. And I am going to gain weight in a city where if you're not a minus size 0, you are fat.'

She added that the focus on her figure 'sends signals to women that even if you're pregnant, you shouldn't gain weight.'
