(Newser) – Lisa Marie Presley is expecting her third child, OK! Magazine reports. Elvis' daughter said she was forced to make the announcement by the media's mockery of her expanding figure. "I have had to show my cards and announce under the gun and under vicious personal attack that I am in fact pregnant," she wrote on her MySpace page.

Presley said she was furious about how the "slanderous and degrading stories" that appeared in the media after photos were taken of her and hubby Michael Lockwood having lunch last week. The Daily Mail had asked, "Like father like daughter? Bloated Lisa Marie is now the double of dad Elvis.''  The King's latest grandchild is due this fall.
