Elvis Presley’s Daughter Gives Birth to Boy
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Grandpa Elvis would have been proud.
Lisa Marie Presley, the 24-year-old daughter of the late rock ‘n’ roll king, gave birth Wednesday to her second child - a son who weighed in at 7 pounds, 8 ounces, spokesman Paul Bloch said Friday.
The boy was born at Humana Women’s Hospital in Tampa, Fla. Presley’s husband, Danny Keough, a 27-year-old musician, was present, Bloch said.
″The baby was delivered naturally and in complete silence in a calm and supportive environment″ under guidelines set out by the Church of Scientology’s founder, L. Ron Hubbard, in his book ″Dianetics,″ Bloch said.
″The book states that whatever is said at birth can affect the child’s mental health in later life,″ the spokesman said.
The child’s name hasn’t been revealed, Bloch said.
″Both mother and baby are doing great and are in excellent health,″ he said. Actress Priscilla Beaulieu Presley was thrilled with the arrival of her second grandchild, he said.
The couple’s first child, Danielle, was born 3 1/2 years ago. The couple has homes in Florida and California.
Elvis Presley died in Memphis, Tenn., in 1977. He was 42.
