The Ricardos were America’s first family of Television. Lucy & Desi were pioneers when the were making I Love Lucy. They were the first to sleep in a Matrimonial bed! Lucy fought to have Desi play her TV husband even though executives at CBS didn’t think audiences would believe an American Red head would be married to a Cuban Band leader.
Years later, Lucy and Ricky continue to make us laugh and cry with their hilarious moments. I love watching the re-runs. In fact, I had recorded some and had Carlo watch them with me one time. He too enjoyed watching them; especially when Lucy is stomping grapes in Italy!
Sometimes I feel like me and Carlo are Lucy and Ricky. Not so much for the crazy ideas and I don’t get into trouble like Lucy, but it’s the little things… and because we have 2 twin bed pushed together too!!
(example, when Carlo can’t understand why some words are pronounced different but spelled the same/similar. through, rough, tough, cough, etc… Just like Ricky did!)
So, I felt it was only natural that my favorite TV couple make this announcement for us. This clip, is from my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE episode of I Love Lucy. It makes me cry… (especially now) EVERYTIME I watch it. (watch the whole video… the end is the best part!)
That’s right…. WE’RE HAVING A BABY!!!
