Perfect lives

However, for a year now, their perfect lives have been dogged by reports that Lucille and Desi actually had a daughter, Linda Lou, before they went on to have Desi Jr. and Lucie.

The extensive reports written on Syndicated News Network claims that Wikipedia had certified their evidence. They claim she looked more like her parents than her famous siblings.

No DNA evidence

Although the Arnaz family have distanced themselves from these claims, Linda Lou's daughter, Cassandria Lucianna Arnaz, has gone public with her story.

Linda, her mother, reportedly suffered an addiction through her adult life until she died in 2003, but Cassandria claims that Lucille Ball regularly visited 'her daughter'.

It remains to be seen if there's any truth to these claims, as no DNA evidence exists yet.
