Lucie Named First Son After Famous Playwright

Yesterday Lucie Arnaz was one of the many celebrities who gathered at the Kennedy Center to honor American Playwright Neil Simon. Simon, 79, was presented with the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor.

According to The Washington Post, Lucie revealed an interesting tidbit about her oldest son:

Lucie Arnaz, who appeared in two Simon plays on Broadway and met her husband, Laurence Luckinbill, when he was appearing in a third, mentioned that she named her first child Simon. "He said,' Simon Luckinbill?' Sounds like a Nazi chaser."

The ceremony will be broadcasted Novemeber 20 on PBS stations.
