In an interview with Vanity Fair, Farrow admitted that Ronan's father might be Frank Sinatra, not Woody Allen.
Calling Sinatra the love of her life, she explains, "We never really split up." (She married the singer when she was 21 and he was 50, but their union fell apart 18 months later when she refused to drop out of "Rosemary's Baby" to star opposite her husband in "The Detective" instead.)
Asked if Ronan, 25, who was believed to be her biological son with Allen, may in fact be the offspring of Sinatra, Farrow responded, "Possibly." While this is hardly a definitive answer and no DNA tests have been performed, it certainly gives some credence to the rumors.
And apparently the Sinatra clan doesn't seem to have a problem with that. In an email, Nancy Sinatra Jr. openly described her family's affection for Ronan. "He is a big part of us," she wrote. "And we are blessed to have him in our lives."
For his part, Ronan is taking his mom's admissions with a sense of humor, posting the following on Twitter:
Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.

Farrow's 28-year-old daughter Dylan (who has changed her name to Malone) also had a lot to say about the man who raised her. Describing her fear of Allen as "crippling," she explained, "I'm scared of him, his image." She is, of course, referring to accusations that Allen sexually abused her during her childhood, an issue Farrow raised during her very public split from the auteur after he left her for their adopted daughter Soon-Yi.
"I have never been asked to testify," Dylan said. "If I could talk to the seven-year-old Dylan, I would tell her to be brave, to testify."
Allen's rep, Leslee Dart, issued the following statement to omg! when asked for the director's reaction to the story, "The article is so fictitious and extravagantly absurd that he is not going to comment.”
Allen's lawyer, Elkan Abramowitz, also says that Allen still denies the allegations.
