Riley Keough, an actress and Elvis Presley's granddaughter, is getting married! The happy news was revealed by her fiancé, via a selfie!

The 25-year-old is set to wed longtime boyfriend Ben Smith-Peterson, an Australian stuntman who met her on the set of the 2015 movie Mad Max: Fury Road.

"So that happened..." he said on Facebook on Wednesday in a photo post, in which he appears shirtless (and sporting a chest tattoo of wolves) alongside Riley, who is wearing a sparkly ring on her ring finger.

The actress has not commented about the engagement. She and Smith-Peterson were first spotted together earlier this year. She previously dated Alex Pettyfer, her co-star in the 2012 movie Magic Mike.

Riley, whose birth name was Danielle Riley Keough, is the eldest grandchild of the late iconic King of Rock n' Roll, who died in 1977 at age 42, and daughter of singer-songwriter Lisa Marie Presley and ex-husband and musician Danny Keough. The actress made her on-screen debut in the 2010 movie The Runaways, which also starred Kristen Stewart.

Riley is Elvis' first grandchild to tie the knot. His other grandchildren are her brother, singer Benjamin Keough, 21, and Lisa Marie's 5-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, from her current marriage to musician Michael Lockwood.
