Sean Lennon's personal life
Born under the careful watch of the media by the virtue of being John Lennon and Yoko Ono's son, Sean has always been closely associated with his late father's music ever since his birth. Sean was the subject of the song 'Beautiful Boy' on the album 'Double Fantasy', John and Yoko’s final record before the former Beatle's death. On the track 'Beautiful Boy', a heartfelt ballad for the five-year-old Sean, John talked of assurance and love singing, "out on the ocean / sailing away / I can hardly wait / to see you come of age / But I guess we’ll both just have to be patient."
Talking about his father in a 1998 Rolling Stone interview, Sean said, "I have a lot of memories of just talking with him, hanging out and watching TV. Him saying "Good night" to me was an intimate moment. It was just me and him. There was something so soothing about his voice. And he did this really cute thing: He would flick the lights on and off in rhythm to whatever he would say…It just made me feel so cozy."
Is Sean Lennon married?
Sean isn't married, but has been in a long-term relationship with model and musician Charlotte Kemp Muhl. Sean met Muhl at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in 2005. Sean thought Muhl, who was 17 at the time, was too young to be in a relationship with. He was 29 back then. According to the couple, they decided to stay friends before they fell in love. Though not married, Sean and Muhl have been in a relationship since 2006. The couple also formed the band The Ghost of a Saber-Tooth Tiger and released two studio albums: 'Acoustic Sessions' (2010), and 'Midnight Sun' (2014).
Speaking to Boston.com about the band, Sean said he stumbled upon Muhl’s musical talents a year after they started dating. Sean talked about it saying, "Before we had a label and had just started dating and life was about building our relationship, we were an acoustic band. We’d write songs in her bedroom or my bedroom, and it was kind of innocent and simple. Then we started playing shows as a band, and our music evolved." Much of their work is written at their own home-based studio in Greenwich Village.
As a model, Muhl, at 16 years old, was the youngest to appear on the cover of Britain's Harper's and Queen magazines. She was signed under contract with Maybelline for 10 years and has been featured in campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger, Sisley, D&G, Donna Karan, Swarovski, and Jennifer Lopez’s brand J.LO.
