And by her legacy, we don’t mean only her films – Lucille had beautiful children and grandchildren, and a great-granddaughter who looks very much like her.

Lucille’s granddaughter, Julia

Lucille and Desi Arnaz had two children: daughter Lucie and son Desi Jr.

Desi Jr. was quite indiscriminate in his teens and fathered a child when he was only 15. He and his daughter Julia had been apart for many years and reunited only in the early ’90s.

Desi Jr. and Julia have managed to rebuild their father-daughter relationship, but sadly, Julia never got to meet her famous grandma in person. Lucille passed away a few years before her son reunited with Julia.

Julia was pregnant when she found out about her grandma’s passing, she revealed on Facebook. Julia's daughter grew up and bears a striking resemblance to her great-grandma.

Desiree turns 30 in 2019, and she’s already proven to be a real fighter. She was diagnosed with breast cancer when she was only 25, underwent grueling treatment, and ultimately, beat the disease.
