Bigfoot, the Roswell UFO landing, the Bermuda Triangle, and who Ronan Farrow’s biological father is continue to be the most unsolved mysteries of our time. If you ask Woody Allen, he’ll tell you he’s Ronan’s father. However, if you were to also ask Woody to put some money down and bet on it, he’ll be pretty hesitant to call a bookie.
For years now, Ronan Farrow has been at the center of a debate about whether the ol’ blue-eyed DNA swimming around in his system is a combination of his mother Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, or Mia and her first husband Frank Sinatra.
During the same Vulture interview with Woody’s wife Soon-Yi Previn, he was asked about the ongoing rumor of Ronan’s paternity. Mia has said that there’s a “possibility” that she made Ronan with Frank 11 years before his death. Both Frank Sinatra’s widow and his daughter Tina said there was no way. Ronan himself has made jokes about it.
Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.

Woody tells Vulture that he considers Ronan to be his kid, but he wouldn’t be surprised if a 23andMe test told him otherwise. And he would be bummed out about that, because he’s spend so much money on Ronan.
“In my opinion, he’s my child. I think he is, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it. I paid for child support for him for his whole childhood, and I don’t think that’s very fair if he’s not mine. Also she represented herself as a faithful person, and she certainly wasn’t. Whether she actually became pregnant in an affair she had…”
It sounds like the only of Mia’s kids he has no regrets paying for is Soon-Yi.
I guess we’ll only know for sure what the truth is if Ronan and Woody submit to a paternity test. Although if I were Ronan, I wouldn’t even make it to the oral swab test, because I’d be too busy slipping the nurse a $20 and asking if that’s enough to get it in writing that I’m officially not related to Woody Allen.
