First photo of John Lennon's boy

These photos are from the May 27, 1976 issue of the New York Daily News (which by the way only cost 15 cents).   I just won this off ebay and I wanted to share the photos with everyoneThe photos were taken by Richard Corkery.

Exclusive:  the course of the true love of ex-Beatle John Lennon and Yoko Ono as not always run smoothly.  But everything has been lovely since the arrival - on John's 35th birthday - of Sean Ono Lennon.  He was born in New York Hospital last Oct. 9 and his daddy immediately dubbed him an "all-American boy."  The never previously photographed infant is Yoko Ono's first child of her marriage to John.  She has a 12-year old daughter by former husband Anthony Cox.

  1. Unbelievable. How you dig this stuff up, I just can't believe it. 1976 Daily News.

    I wrote to John around this time, I was literally like six or seven years old. I don't know what I wrote but I'll bet I asked alot about The Beatles. I remember it was in the Playboy interview I guess, or one of his last interviews, he mentions getting letters from kids who ask him about the Beatles and he thought it was sick! I always have wondered if it was my letter that made him sick!!! Well, if it was....sorry Johnny! But don't blame me that you were that good!!! Ha!

    I grew up on Long Island and someone once told me that Lennon had a house in my hometown (Rocky Point)....but I never believed it.

    By the way, Sara, just a slight typo in your subject line, the word "First". (not that I care!!) (or maybe the photographer's name was Frist?)
