1953: Little Ricky is Born on 'I Love Lucy'
January 19, 2019  | By Linda Donovan
 

On this day in 1953, “Lucy Ricardo” gave birth to “Little Ricky” on I Love Lucy.  Not coincidentally, the airdate was also the same day Lucille Ball gave birth (by scheduled Caesarean section) to Desi Arnaz, Jr., her second child with husband and co-star Desi Arnaz. “Lucy Goes to the Hospital” was tuned in by an estimated 68 percent of American households (though some estimates put the number as high as 75 percent), the most-watched program up to that point. A few months later, Desi Arnaz, Jr. appeared on the very first cover of TV Guide.
