Lisa Marie Presley has given birth to twin girls.
The 40-year-old singer welcomed the babies into the world - weighing 5 lbs 15 oz and 5 lbs 2 oz - after having a caesarean section last Tuesday (07.10.08), her spokesperson Cindy Guagenti has revealed.
Cindy, who wouldn't reveal the infants' names, said: "The babies and mom are happy and healthy and resting at home."
The twins are Lisa Marie's first children with husband Michael Lockwood, 47.
She also has two children, 19-year-old daughter Riley and 15-year-old son Benjamin, with ex-husband musician Danny Keough.
Lisa Marie's mother Priscilla revealed the pregnancy following speculation about her daughter's weight gain.
She said: "She wanted it really to be kept a secret for a long time, and I think women should, because they should be able to announce what they're having and when it's time to make the announcement."
It had previously been rumoured that Lisa Marie was expecting a daughter and a son, and was planning to pay tribute to her father, late rock 'n' roll singer Elvis, in naming them.
A source claimed she was planning to name the boy Jesse, after Elvis' identical twin who was stillborn and the girl Gladys Love after Elvis' mother.
