Jackie and Rachel Robinson had three children - two boys and one girl.  We see them in this 1956 photograph.  (Jack's last season as a Brooklyn Dodger was 1956.)

The Library of Congress provides a description for this photo:

Jackie Robinson, Rachel Robinson, and their three children (David, Sharon, and Jackie, Jr.) at home in Stamford, Connecticut.  Photograph by Arthur Rothstein, 1956. 

This photograph is one of many taken to illustrate the article "My Future," published in Look magazine on January 22, 1957.

NOTE that Look donated many photographs, taken by its employees, to the Library of Congress as a gift to the American people.
