Son of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. His mom’s pregnancy was written into the plot of I Love Lucy, which was a daring move for a TV show at the time. The same day that she gave birth to Desi Jr., her fictional counterpart, Lucy Ricardo, gave birth to Little Ricky on the show (though the baby was not played by Desi Jr. ). His photo eventually graced the first ever TV Guide in April 1953, accompanied by the title “Lucy’s $50,000,000 baby.”
It's times like these I wish I had assayed the grim arts of necromancy, that I might raise the carcass of Henry Luce to shamble the halls of his once-proud magazine, feasting on the flesh of twenty-something idiots.
You forgot King John the 1st of France whose father died before his birth. He got to be king at the very moment of his birth, only to die 5 days later...
@rcola Really? What % of the world's population was anticipating Jesus, that would be one measurement. Another would be total number of people anticipating. I doubt that Jesus comes even close to Baby Royal or North East West South whatever this baby's name is. Now, if the question was about "importance" or "relevance" or "most likely to indirectly influence religious leaders to major wars and billions dead" then JC might be head of the list.
