Carmela Van Arsdale was the prematurely born daughter of Francesca Corleone and William Van Arsdale III. She was named after Francesca's paternal grandmother Carmela Corleone.[1]

Though she lived for only one day, her death had a profound effect on the lives of her parents, being one of the factors that would lead to the breakdown of their marriage.[1]
