Danielle Riley Keough was born May 29, 1989 at Providence Saint John's Health Center in Santa Monica, California. She is eldest daughter of singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough, and the eldest grandchild of singer and actor Elvis Presley and actress and businesswoman Priscilla Presley. Keough's father met her mother while performing as a bass guitarist in her mother's band. She had one biological brother, Benjamin Storm Keough, who died by suicide in July 2020. She also has two half-sisters, twins Harper and Finley, from her mother's fourth marriage, to Michael Lockwood. According to Keough, her paternal ancestry is Irish, Portuguese Sephardi Jewish, and Ashkenazi Jewish, while her maternal ancestry through her grandfather, Elvis Presley, includes Creek, Cherokee, Scots-Irish, and Norman; Keough's maternal grandmother, Priscilla, is of part Norwegian descent.When Keough was six years old, her parents divorced, and her mother was briefly remarried to Michael Jackson from 1994 until 1996. Of her upbringing, Keough said that she "grew up very privileged with my mother, but my dad didn’t live like that. And I think experiencing both sides has been helpful. My father had mattresses on the floor of his apartments. He lived in cabins and trailer parks. He just didn’t have much money." Keough was raised primarily by her father in Hawaii and Los Angeles, though she at times lived at her mother's Los Angeles home, as well as at the Graceland Estate in Memphis, Tennessee, which was inherited by her mother following her grandfather Elvis's death. In 2002, when Keough was 13 years old, her mother married actor Nicolas Cage, though this marriage was also short-lived, ending two years later in divorce. For a time, Keough attended a public school in the San Fernando Valley, but was ultimately homeschooled due to her having to frequently travel between her parents' homes.
