smoldering love After meeting on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road, Riley Keough’s relationship with stuntman Ben Smith-Petersen is a Hollywood fairy tale come true.
Because the crew was smaller and I had the opportunity to meet him there, our relationship only began after we completed the re-shoots. In April 2016, Keough, who is the daughter of the late Lisa Marie Presley and her ex-husband Danny Keough, with whom she also had a deceased son named Benjamin Keough, spoke with USA Today.
“We were at a gas station two weeks into our relationship when I said, “I could see myself having kids with this guy. I felt a little bit as though I had already met my husband. It was awesome.
We’re infatuated with each other, but it was more profound than that, she continued at the time. He always made me feel at ease. You know when you first start dating someone and you feel awkward, like you don’t want to eat in front of them, you wake up and put on makeup, or something crazy like that?
Even at first, I just always wanted to be close to him because I felt so at ease around him.
Smith-Petersen popped the question almost two years later and announced the happy news on Facebook. The Australian native wrote, “So that happened,” beside a selfie of his then-fiancee wearing the engagement ring he had crafted for her from a diamond his mother had given him.
In a charming ceremony in Napa, California, in February 2015, the Daisy Jones & The Six actress and Smith-Petersen exchanged vows in front of their famous friends Kristen Stewart, Dakota Johnson, and Cara Delevingne.
“I’m very happy! The man is him! Riley, who briefly got engaged to Alex Pettyfer in 2012, enthused to Town & Country in March 2015, “We’re going to be together forever.” “Marriage is the proper course of action for us at this time.
I would like to have children with Ben, and I am confident that our friendship will endure. You want it once you get married.
The Zola actress and the director, along with their French bulldog Grubs, adapted immediately to wedded bliss.
Ben received his black belt in BJJ today. He achieved his lifelong goal of becoming a black belt before turning 30. I’m very proud of you,” the War Pony actress captioned her husband’s Jiu-Jitsu victory in April 2021 on Instagram.
Additionally, Smith-Petersen routinely posts romantic photos of the married couple on social media.
“7 RAD years of luck. I adore you more than anything else. In February 2022, he posted a flashback photo of their wedding to Instagram to commemorate their anniversary and requested “7,000 more years please.”
In the movie Mad Max: Fury Road, in which Smith-Petersen worked as a stuntman, Riley portrayed one of Immortal Joe’s wives, played by Hugh Keays-Byrne. During downtime while filming retakes in Australia, the twosome grew close.
A source exclusively revealed to Us Weekly after Smith-Petersen announced their engagement that they are “ideal for each other.”
At the moment, a second insider added: “[I am] really delighted for them. They made jokes about becoming pregnant with a dog together and how it was just a matter of time before they were married.
Us verified that the couple wed on February 4.
In the caption of a selfie with his wife, Smith-Petersen wrote, “Everything is better because of u.”
The couple kissed while on a beach vacation.
The Triple Frontier stuntman thanked his wife for overseeing his rehabilitation after he need hip surgery. “I’m incredibly grateful to have you every day, but today especially. Gratitude was. I love you,” he posted Instagram photos of himself in the hospital.
Smith-Petersen wished Riley a happy birthday with the comment, “Hippy borfday, you are very nice & I am pretty foolish & we are both borderline old & I love you a lot.”
