Ronan Farrow, the former kid genius and son of actress Mia Farrow and Woody Allen, may actually be Frank Sinatra’s son.

When asked by Vanity Fair if Ronan could be Sinatra’s biological son, Farrow said, “Possibly.” The actress told the magazine that there has never been a DNA test to confirm that Ronan is Allen’s son and that she had an ongoing relationship with Sinatra even after their divorce.

Farrow and Sinatra got married in 1966 when she was 21 and he was 50. The two were divorced by 1968 after Sinatra served her divorce papers on the set of “The Detective.” Farrow told VF, however, that ” we never really split up.” Following a brief marriage to composer Andre Previn, Farrow married Allen in 1980. She gave birth to Ronan in 1987.

Farrow and Allen had a famously strange and dramatic relationship, with Farrow accusing Allen of sexually abusing their daughter Dylan when she was just seven years old, a charge that Allen has long denied.

Although the sexual abuse charges against Allen were dropped, Dylan told VF, “There’s a lot I don’t remember, but what happened in the attic I remember. I remember what I was wearing and what I wasn’t wearing.”

“The things making me uncomfortable were making me think I was a bad kid, because I didn’t want to do what my elder told me to do,” she said.

Farrow and Allen divorced in 1992 after she discovered that Allen was having a sexual relationship with her 19-year-old adopted daughter, Soon-Yi. Allen and Soon-Yi have been married since 1997, and Farrow has been estranged from her daughter and ex-husband since then.

Ronan, now 25, is the least messed up and most accomplished person in his family. He was a child prodigy who graduated from Bard College at 15 and immediately accepted into Yale Law School, which he deferred until 2006 to work for former U.N. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke, and is now a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University. Whew.

He is also very attractive, and by the sheer looks of things, resembles the handsome Ol’ Blue Eyes much more than Woody Allen.

UPDATE: Ronan Farrow tweeted a perfect response to the fact that he is “possibly” Frank Sinatra’s son.
