He is English by nationality but Irish descent from his father’s side and his original names are Declan Patrick Aloysius McManus.

Elvis is the son of Ross MacManus who was born in Birkenhead, Merseyside (formerly Cheshire) and his wife Lilian Alda (nee Ablett) who was born in Liverpool. His father was born in 1927 and passed away in 2011 while his mother was born in 1927 and passed away in 2021.

Elvis was not the first to venture in music in his life since his father was a jazz trumpeter, then joined Joe Loss Orchestra before deciding to on his own as a solo Cabaret act. His song The Long and Winding Road became a great hit in 1970 in Australia. On the other hand, his mother worked as a record store manager. Elvis has four brothers named Ronan Macmanus, Ruari Macmanus, Kieran Macmanus and Liam Macmanus. Costello was not very lucky to enjoy being raised by both parents since his parents divorced when he was only 7 years old and he was therefore raised by a single mum.

Personal Life: Dating, Girlfriends, Wife, Kids

Elvis might have been so willing to try out having his own family. This is because, even after being in two failed relationships, he didn’t give up. His first marriage was to Mary Burgoyne (m. 1974 –d. 1984) and they had a son together named Matthew. After the divorce with his first wife, he took time alone to ensure that he tries to get the right woman this time. Upon meeting Cait O’Riordan, he thought he was not lucky, but unfortunately he wasn’t.

The two got married in 1986 and their marriage lasted for 16 good years but in 2002 they agreed that things weren’t working out well. Therefore, they decided to go their separate ways.
