In a surprising revelation several years ago, Mia Farrow hinted that her ex-husband Frank Sinatra could be Ronan’s father. While the celebrity couple divorced in 1968, Farrow later told  Vanity Fair that they “never really split up.”

When asked if Sinatra could be Ronan’s biological father instead of Allen, Farrow replied, “possibly.”

Ronan does not have a relationship with Allen today, nor does Dylan Farrow.

In a scathing 2014 open letter for The New York Times, Dylan accused her adoptive father of sexually molesting her when she was a little girl.

Allen has repeatedly denied the allegations by his estranged daughter, and only one of his children – Moses-  has stood by him.

In 2014, Moses Farrow told People magazine that Allen “did not” molest his sister. Instead, Moses blamed Farrow for drumming into him to “hate” his father for “tearing apart the family and sexually molesting” Dylan.

“I see now that this was a vengeful way to pay him back for falling in love with Soon-Yi,” Moses, a family therapist, added.

He also revealed that distancing himself from his mother “has led to a positive reunion” with his father, Allen. In 2020, Moses even told The Guardian, “I’d be happy to take my father’s surname.”

In addition to his three kids with Farrow, Allen adopted two daughters With Soon-Yi, Bechet and Manzie, according to Vulture.
