Is the late, great, Frank Sinatra the real father of Mia Farrow's genius son, not Woody Allen?
Twenty-three-year-old Ronan Farrow has always been known as the only biological child of Mia Farrow and Woody Allen. But now, the actress is going public to say that Ronan may actually be the son of the legendary singer.
Vanity Fair special correspondent Maureen Orth interviewed Farrow for the new issue and spoke on the Today show.
Orth told Matt Lauer, "I asked her, point blank, 'Is Ronan Frank Sinatra's son?' and she said, 'Possibly.' He [Sinatra] was the love of her life."
Farrow was married to Sinatra for two years in the late '60's. He served her divorce papers on the set of Rosemary's Baby. But she says, "He came back, over and over and over and over. I mean, we never really split up."
Sinatra would have been 78 years old when and if he fathered Ronan.
He died at age 82 in 1998. Farrow attended the funeral with Ronan, but she did not take any of her other children.
Ronan, who grew up on Manhattan's Upper West Side, was a boy genius. He graduated from college at 15, went on to Yale law school and became a Rhodes scholar. He also worked for Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State.
No DNA tests have been conducted, but it takes only one look at Ronan's striking blue eyes to see the resemblance to Ol' Blue Eyes' himself. Comparing Ronan to Woody Allen? Not so much.
Orth said, "Ronan looks a lot like Frank Sinatra. He sings like Frank Sinatra."
On The Talk, Aisha Tyler said, "Apparently, Mia did it his way."
Kathy Lee Gifford said on the Today show, "I'm sorry, he looks like the spitting image of Frank Sinatra!"
INSIDE EDITION asked forensic expert Lawrence Kobilinsky for his take.
"The nose, the mouth, the ears, the general appearance—I think it's quite amazing. The likeness is strong," said Kobilinsky.
Sinatra's daughter, Nancy, stopped just short of calling Ronan her half-brother, telling Vanity Fair, "He is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives."
Sinatra's widow is said to "[fuss] over [Ronan] and cooks for him like a grandmother."
Today, Ronan kept the mystery going, tweeting: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."
But the normally-reclusive Woody Allen is denouncing the story, saying through a spokesman, "The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment."
