This is a MPIMS, but since it involves show people (like unto whom are no people I know) I’ll put it here.
Mia Farrow’s son, born Satchel Allen but now known as Ronan Farrow, has long been hailed as Woody Allen’s only biological child (he has other adopted children with Farrow and her former daughter/his current wife Soon Yi). Now Farrow states that Ronan, a child prodigy turned up-and-coming lawyer and pundit at 25, might have resulted from her ongoing relationship with her ex-husband Frank Sinatra:
Nitpick: Is “confided” really an accurate word when you’re giving an interview to a magazine?
Ordinarily I would think that it was extremely tacky and more than a bit trashy to publicly admit your grown son was conceived in a tryst with your 78 year old ex-husband long after he remarried and while you were involved in a long term relationship with another man. However, I think an exception can be made when the “another man” is Woody Allen, as I believe in an America where all children should be able to sleep each night secure in the knowledge that Woody Allen might not be their biological father.
Nancy Sinatra, while not confirming it, definitely hinted at the possibility.
The best line is Ronan’s. One June he tweeted “Happy father’s day, or, as we call it my family, ‘Brother-in-law Day’”. About the Sinatra possibility he tweeted:
Whoever fathered him, this is a kid I’d want to take credit for if I was a possible sperm donor. Since he’s definitely not mine, I wouldn’t mind shagging him as he’s rather adorable.
