It Feels So Right

Touched as she was when the earnest young man asked for her daughter's hand in marriage Dec. 23, Priscilla Presley still couldn't help but tweak her future son-in-law. "So," she asked him, as she later related on Entertainment Tonight, "how do you plan on supporting her? He was, 'Well, uh...uh...' "

Hawaiian-born John Oszajca, 25, might be forgiven a little hemming and hawing. After all, his fiancée is Elvis's only child and sole heir, Lisa Marie Presley, 32, whose fortune is estimated to be $100 million.

But that won't stop Oszajca—who met Lisa Marie through friends last May in Los Angeles—from singing for his supper. Like her two ex-husbands, Danny Keough—father of her children Danielle, 10, and Benjamin, 7—and Michael Jackson, Oszajca is a singer-songwriter, whose solo debut album, From Here to There, is due out in April.

The couple has yet to set a date, but it's clear that Lisa Marie hopes—four years after telling Jackson to beat it—that the third time will be her last. "The second marriage was a mistake, everyone knows," says attorney John P. Coale, who handled her divorce from the gloved one. "But I think she'll be happy with this guy."

At the Sundance Film Festival in January, where Oszajca played two sold-out shows at Park City, Utah, clubs, Lisa Marie planted many public smooches on her guy. But she's still her secretive daddy's girl: "We're so darn proud," says future father-in-law John Sr. from the Oahu home he shares with artist-wife Linda. "But they don't want us to talk to anyone about it, not one thing, nothing."
