Ball gathered roles in over 70 films in her lifetime and was honored for her gumption. She changed her face over the decades of her career, most famous for her second pregnancy.
Pregnancy was written in I love Lucy and despite a fight with the show producers on the use of the word "pregnant" on the screen – it was strictly forbidden to favor the "expect" section with the birth of little Ricky was sent the same day that Ball greeted her real baby Desi Jr. by imperial.
CBS had never shown a pregnant woman in television before.
