In 1941 Ball and Arnaz purchased their first home, a five-acre “ranch” (or “ranchito,” as Arnaz referred to it) in the then-rural Chatsworth district of Los Angeles. They christened it “Desilu,” a combination of their own names that would later become world-famous as the name of their production company. By the late 1940s, Ball and Arnaz still had no children. And Ball came to attribute this—at least in part—to the fact that they had been married by a judge and not in a church. In 1949 the two were married again at Our Lady of the Valley Church in Canoga Park, California. Ball and Arnaz continued to live at their Desilu ranch with daughter Lucie (b. 1951) and son Desi, Jr. (b. 1953) until the family moved to Beverly Hills in 1954.
