Lucille Ball's Grown-Up Great-Granddaughter Inherited All Her Stunning Beauty

Desiree Anzalone is all grown up and bears a striking resemblance to her iconic great-grandmother, Lucille Ball.

One of the best-beloved comediennes of all time is undoubtedly Lucille Ball. The hilariously funny actress was also a woman of incomparable beauty, with dazzling blue eyes, and titan-red hair.

Sadly. Lucile passed away in 1989, but her spirit and her beauty live on in her descendants, especially Desiree Anzalone, who has inherited her great-grandmother's delicate beauty, and her courage.

Lucille Ball rose to stardom in the 1950s while starring in the sitcom "I Love Lucy," which became one of the most beloved programs in television history.

LUCILLE BALL'S GREAT-GRANDDAUGHTER

Unlike Lucille, Desiree is more comfortable behind the camera and is a successful and well-regarded photographer.

Desiree is the daughter of Julia Arnaz, Lucille's granddaughter. Desiree was born after the renowned actress' at death at 77.

Such a nice article wrote about me, and how Lucy and I share the same gumption in regards to my fight with stage 4 breast cancer and how proud she’d be of me, however the outrage from 3,000 comments of people literally yelling through my phone outweighed the beautiful story the author wrote. Everyone only focused on the superficial outward appearance of us and about how I LOOK NOTHING LIKE HER, “someone needs glasses” “No resemblance. Lucy was beautiful” “Who writes this bullshit...they need to go to spec savers”. These comments are so ridiculous, and sad, like calm down people. I promise it’s going to be okay. No need to get so angry. Too many shallow human beings out there. I have acknowledged my entire life I do not resemble my great grandma, but rather have more of the Arnaz genes. So thank you all for stating the obvious 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 I empathize with actual celebrities who have to read shit about them every day, so sad, so many trolls and mean gremlins on the internet • • •••••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••••••••••••••••••• •••••••••••••••••••••••• https://www.theepochtimes.com/comedy-queen-lucille-balls-great-granddaughter-is-all-grown-up-and-looks-just-like-her_2874017.html

At first sight, Desiree seems nothing like her great-grandmother, with her long raven locks, and casual style, but a closer look at her blue eyes brings the startling resemblance into focus. She is Lucille as a brunette, with the same fragile beauty.

A FIGHTER LIKE LUCY

But like Lucille's, Desiree's apparent fragility is deceptive. When Desiree was only 25 years old, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. But she was able to beat the disease after bravely undergoing grueling treatment.

Desiree is the daughter of Julia, who is Lucille’s granddaughter from her son Desi Jr., who fathered her at 15 on a fashion model with whom he had an affair.

Desiree's early life was troubled. Through most of her childhood, her mother Julia struggled with cocaine addiction and worked as a stripper to support her habit, and allegedly help was not forthcoming from the Arnaz family.

HEALTH ISSUES

Then, when she was 25, Desiree was diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer. After an arduous fight for her life, Desiree was declared cancer-free. Desiree never met her great-grandmother, but she wrote on Instagram:

"Such a nice article wrote about me, and how Lucy and I share the same gumption in regards to my fight with stage 4 breast cancer and how proud she’d be of me."

MAKING HISTORY

Lucille certainly had gumption. Lucille Ball became a household name in the 1950s starring in the sitcom "I Love Lucy," which became one of the most beloved programs in television history. The show focused on her character and her marriage.

Alongside her starred her real-life husband, Cuban bandleader Desi Arnaz. But while their on-screen romance was delightful, their real marriage was troubled by his infidelities. Nonetheless, the couple founded a television studio together, Desilu Productions.

Lucille was the first woman to own a television studio, and her work as a comedienne won her critical acclaim and adulation, and she garnered four Primetime Emmy Awards and was inducted into the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1960.

Among her many other awards, there were the Golden Globe Cecil B. DeMille Award, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Kennedy Center Honors, and the Governors Award from the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.

ANOTHER LOOKALIKE

Another legendary Hollywood star whose famous looks were inherited by a grandchild is actor Clint Eastwood. Titan Eastwood is just as dashing as his famous grandfather. Titan was born in 2019 to Eastwood's daughter with actress Frances Fisher, Francesca, who shared photos of her baby on Instagram.

Titan was born in 2019 to Eastwood's daughter with actress Frances Fisher, Francesca, who shared photos of her baby on Instagram. The actress and model captioned the photo:

“This time last year I would have never imagined that this little angel would be here. This is by far the most beautiful challenging and hilarious time of my life.”

The photos show Titan lying in bed in a gray sweatshirt as he smiles at the camera, and he is the spitting image of his famous grandfather.

Clint and his former partner Frances recently attended the Los Angeles premiere of Francesca's film, “M.F.A.” 

Francesca first appeared on the reality television series “Mrs. Eastwood & Company”, and starred  is an accomplished actress, who alongside her mother in the acclaimed “Fargo” episode “The Law of Non-Contradiction.”
