Trivia

Goofs

When Ricky sings "Rock-a-Bye Baby", he mixes up the verses towards the end. This was a genuine goof by Desi Arnaz. They considered filming another take but decided the scene was so purely emotional that it was left in. See more »

We're Having a Baby! My Baby and Me!
12 August 2020 | by angelahptrioSee all my reviews

Classic I Love Lucy episode including the hospital one. This was bold choice because in the 50s things were very conservative and censored. A pregnant woman on TV was risque even though they're married. Anyway, from beginning to end I enjoy this episode. It's quotable alot. And the touching part is Ricky singing My Baby and Me to Lucy. There was a lot of emotions going on from the actors and as characters.
