Mia Farrow: Son Ronan 'Possibly' Fathered by Frank Sinatra (& Not Woody Allen)

Mia Farrow: Son Ronan 'Possibly' Fathered by Frank Sinatra (& Not Woody Allen)

Originally posted 10/02/2013 09:45AM

Could Frank Sinatra actually be the biological father of Mia Farrow's handsome son Ronan – whose father was always said to be Woody Allen?

Although no DNA tests were ever done, Ronan, a 25-year-old former Rhodes scholar who bears a striking resemblance to Ol' Blue Eyes, remains close to the late crooner's family, as does Farrow, Vanity Fair reports in its November issue, in an interview with the actress.

Farrow, 68, who was married to Sinatra from 1966 to 1968, admittedly continued a relationship with the music legend while she was involved in a longtime relationship with filmmaker Allen.

Sinatra, who died in 1998, would have been about 72 when Ronan, born in 1987, was conceived.

Asked point blank by Vanity Fair's Maureen Orth whether Ronan could be Sinatra's son, Farrow responds with one word: "Possibly."

If anyone's been following the sex scandals of Anthony Weiner and Eliot Spitzer, it's Julianna Margulies.

The Emmy-winning actress's CBS show The Good Wife "ripped its title from the headlines when Silda Spitzer was standing right behind her husband" during the prostitution scandal, Margulies told PEOPLE on Tuesday.

With her character "loosely based" on Silda and other political wives who have stood by their husbands, Margulies says, "The headlines are now imitating us because both of these politicians – Spitzer and Weiner – have gotten back into the game of politics.
