She can’t help falling in love.

Riley Keough knew she wanted to start a family with her husband, Ben Smith-Petersen, by their second date.

“When I met my husband, he came out of the gas station on our second date and I thought, ‘I’m going to marry him and have kids with him,’” Keough, 33, explained on Wednesday’s episode of “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

The daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley and musician Danny Keough said that she can’t see the future but she usually knows “certain things are going to happen.”

Riley added, “I just knew. We didn’t even say ‘I love you’ yet.”

Despite her early premonitions of starting a life together, Riley didn’t dare tell him she loved him at that moment.

“It certainly wasn’t at that point,” she told Colbert. “I thought, ‘If I tell him now, he will leave me here in Australia at the gas station.’”

Luckily for the “Daisy Jones & The Six” star, she would go on to marry Smith-Petersen and welcome a daughter with him.

Riley and Smith-Petersen, a professional stuntman, first met in 2012 while both working on the film “Mad Max: Fury Road.” They were reportedly introduced on set but didn’t start dating until a year later while re-shooting for the movie in Australia.

They announced their engagement in 2014 and, a year later, they tied the knot in Napa, Calif. News that the duo secretly welcomed their first child together, a daughter, made headlines in January.

Smith-Petersen alluded to welcoming a baby with Riley while reading a letter from his wife at Lisa Marie’s memorial at Graceland that month.

“Thank you for showing me love is the only thing that matters in this life. I hope I can love my daughter the way you loved me, the way you loved my brother and my sisters,” the letter from Riley to her late mom stated.

Lisa Marie – the only child of the late Elvis Presley and his ex-wife, Priscilla Presley – died on Jan. 12 after suffering cardiac arrest.

The granddaughter of the “Hound Dog” singer mourned the loss of her mom a week after she passed away,  posting a throwback photo with Lisa Marie to her Instagram with several red heart emojis.

The rock n’ roll heiress shared two kids with Danny: Riley and son Benjamin Keough, who died by suicide in July 2020 at the age of 27. Lisa Marie also shared 14-year-old twin daughters Finley and Harper with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

Riley and her two younger sisters will inherit Graceland, where Lisa Marie, Bejanmin, and Elvis have all been buried.

Amid her heartbreak, Riley is reportedly not talking to Priscilla, 77, after her grandmother filed to contest Lisa Marie’s will.
