Priscilla Presley excited to be a grandmother again

03/12/2008 at 06:03 PM ET

Possibly the only person more excited about Lisa Marie Presley‘s pregnancy than herself and husband Michael Lockwood, 46, is her mother, actress Priscilla Presley, 62. The Dancing with the Stars contestant states,

We are all excited about a little one. All of our kids are grown up, so this is really exciting news for all of us.

While Priscilla is over the moon about her 40-year-old daughter’s pregnancy, she is upset about the public scrutiny Lisa Marie has received lately.

I think it’s cruel what’s happening today with people and with celebrities. You want to be a perfectionist and do the best you possibly can and you have parasites out there trying to bring you down and take you down. It’s a very tough time for people in the limelight today.

I think this is fantastic news. I feel sad that Lisa had to suffer such humiliating treatment during such a happy time. I’m so glad that celebrities are speaking up about such insanity.

Congratulations Lisa!

I guess I must have missed a lot of this mean treatment from the press I keep hearing Lisa complain about, cuz the first I heard of it was when they guessed she might be pregnant and then right away she confirmed it.

Can’t wait to see priscilla on DWTS, she looks great still at 62. Also looking forward to seeing lisa’s baby in the future and hearing the name. Congrats to the family.

I feel bad for Priscilla too, she wasn’t allowed to look pregnant when she was pregnant with Lisa Marie, so unfortunately not alot has changed.

I have always liked both Priscilla and Lisa Marie. I feel sorry for Lisa, her whole life has been in the spotlight. Priscella did a good job trying to give her as normal a life as she could.

I think you have the ages wrong in this story. I believe Lisa Marie is around 40, because if she is 46 then Priscilla would have been 16 when she was born. I think we all know that isn’t true.

Sarah’s note: I think you seem to have misread the article.
