They Couldn’t Say ‘PREGNANT’ — So Lucy And Desi DID THIS! (WATCH)


CBS’ “I Love Lucy” starring Lucille ball (Lucy Ricardo) and Desi Arnaz (Ricky Ricardo) remains the most popular television show in history.

It is a classic that we all love to watch. But did you know in the 1950s, they couldn’t say “pregnant” on television? It was too controversial!

That’s why on “I Love Lucy” they used the word “enceinte”… which is simply the French word for pregnant. Censored approved, and the announcement was included with an incredible song.

Don’t you miss when television was like this?
