Ronan Farrow has been in the news lately for family drama. First, his mom, Mia Farrow, claimed she was unsure of who his father was. Then, he used Twitter to make a pretty accusatory statement against his “dad,” Woody Allen.

We will be hearing more from the 26-year-old since he was awarded with his own daytime show on MSNBC. Here’s what you need to know about the celebrity child with a very impressive resume.


1. He’s Getting His Own TV Show

He will host an hour-long program premiering on February 24th at 1 p.m.
MSNBC President Phil Griffin told The Daily Beast about meeting Farrow for the first time.

Within 20 minutes, it was ‘Holy Cow!’ I knew. I’d wondered, is this guy for real? Is he a freak? And he walked in and we had the greatest conversation about where media is going—and that is critical. We’ve got to be at the forefront of it, and if we’re not, we’re going to lose. Things are changing so rapidly all the time. There are thousands of options—not only entertainment options, but in the information space—so you’ve got to be smart and different and clever and original.


2. His Dad Is Either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra

Last year, Vanity Fair interviewed Mia Farrow and the reporter asked her if Frank Sinatra was Ronan’s father. She replied, “Possibly.”

Ronan Farrow obviously has some animosity toward Allen.

During the Woody Allen Cecil B. DeMille Award tribute during the Golden Globes, Ronan decided to use social media to slam his father.

Mia Farrow jumped in on her son’s statement, tweeting this the next day:
