Musician and child of Desi Arnaz and Lucille Ball. He offered as the drummer for the music group Dino, Desi, and Billy. He started playing drums when he was twelve years of age. Because his parents had been the celebrities of I REALLY LIKE Lucy, his delivery was worked in to the tv show’s storyline. He wedded Linda Purl on January 13, 1980. Pursuing his 1981 divorce from Purl, he wed Amy Arnaz. He includes a couple of daughters called Julia and Haley. The I REALLY LIKE Lucy personality loosely predicated on Arnaz was performed by Keith Thibodeaux.
