“My beautiful beautiful angel, I worshipped the ground you walked on, on this earth and now in Heaven,” she wrote. “My heart and soul went with you.”

“The depth of the pain is suffocating and bottomless without you every moment of every day.”

“Happy Birthday my sweet sweet Boy. You were much to [sic] good for this world,” Presley added.

The singer, who is the daughter of Elvis and Priscilla Presley, had Benjamin, her second eldest child, with ex-husband Danny Keough. They also have a daughter, Riley, 31.

Presley also has 11-year-old twin daughters, Harper and Finley, whom she shares with ex-husband Michael Lockwood.

She was previously also married to Michael Jackson and Nicholas Cage.

“Please wait for me my love, and hold my hand while I stay to continue to protect and raise your little sisters and to be here for Riley,” she wrote. “I know you would want that.”

Riley, who is an actress, also honoured her late brother on social media sharing a number of photos of them together.

“Happy Birthday beautiful angel,” Riley wrote.
