It's been one month since Riley Keough and Ben Smith-Peterson said "I do," and now, in an interview which took place before her wedding day, the 25-year-old beauty is opening up about her Napa nuptials. 

Looking effortlessly gorgeous on the cover of Town and Country, the granddaughter of Elvis Presley dishes on her unconventional bringing, her personal rise to fame and her own views her marriage (her mother, Lisa Marie-Presley, has been married and divorced three times and in 2006, she wed her fourth and current husband Michael Lockwood). 

Marriage is "the right thing to do right now," Keough tells the publication of her decision to wed the Aussie stuntman, whom she met on location in Namibia in 2012 while filming Mad Max: Fury Road. "Like, I want to have children with Ben, and I know we'll always be close. That's what you want anytime you get married."

Asked to clarify her comments, Keough added with a laugh, "Every time I get married."

The red-headed stunner and her longtime boyfriend swapped vows in February in an intimate and star-studded ceremony in Napa Valley, Calif. Guests included Keough's famous bestie Kristen StewartCara DelevingneZoë KravitzAbby Lee and Courtney Eaton.

While the actress stayed mum on the details of Smith-Peterson's proposal, she did admit it wasn't her best day and she shared details of her ring—a diamond from Ben's mother (his parents are still married) which he had set in a vintage ring. 

"Everyone knew," she said of the proposal before adding of their French bulldog. "Even Grubs."

In addition to dishing on her I-dos, the actress, who has  previously been linked to a string of Hollywood suitors, also gave some insight into her past relationships, admitting she is usually the one to do the breaking up. 

"I've maybe gotten broken up with one time," she said. "And I like to think that's because I'm a very good girlfriend."

Still, in spite of finding her own Prince Charming, Riley says she, nor her husband, are naive about the difficulties of marriage. "You know, I'm not delusional or a complete idiot, and neither is Ben," she said before doing her best impression of a ditzy, lovestruck woman. "I'm so excited! He's the one! We're going to be together forever!"

Meanwhile, Keough is currently preparing for the release of Mad Max: Fury Road. The highly-anticipated postapocalyptic thriller is set to hit theaters on May 15.
