Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough got candid with Town and Country about her views on marriage.

The 25 year old spoke about how she just knew marriage was the “right thing to do right now."

"Like, I want to have children with Ben,” Keough told the mag of her new Aussie stuntman husband Ben Ben Smith-Petersen. “And I know we'll always be close. That's what you want anytime you get married.”

Keough met her husband in 2012 while filming “Mad Max: Fury Road” in Nambia. The young couple married in Napa last month in front of close friends and family including Kristen Stewart, Cara Delevingne, Zoe Kravtiz and Courtney Eaton.

Despite watching her mother go through three divorces and four husbands, Keough said she was not turned off by marriage. "She's the one who kept me from not turning out how she didn't want me to turn out," she said.

Keough also opened up on her past relationships saying, "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."
