Who Is Ronan Farrow's Father?
Satchel Ronan O'Sullivan Farrow (born December 19, 1987) is an American journalist. The son of actress Mia Farrow and filmmaker Woody Allen, he is known for writing the 2017 articles in The New Yorker that helped uncover allegations of sexual abuse against film producer Harvey Weinstein.

Journalist and celebrity offspring Ronan Farrow attended HBO's pogram Real Time with Bill Maher to promote his new book but it didn’t take long for the show’s professionally provocative host to shake Farrow’s family tree to see what might pop loose.
The discussion about Farrow’s controversial new book, Catch and Kill: Lies, Spies and A Conspiracy to Protect Predators, opened into a wider conversation about the #metoo movement and the role of Farrow’s reportage in the movement.
Now," Maher asked, "what do you think your father would think about what you're doing now?"
Farrow sidestepped the topic by telling Maher it would be wiser to "ask my mom" for opinions of Sinatra, since she was married to the legendary singer from 1966 to 1968. The author also didn't volunteer any comments on Allen or his own response to the success of Farrow's specialized reportage.
Despite Farrow's own apparent lack of interest in questions about his paternity, mom Mia, with whom he's always been close, seems to enjoy the ongoing speculation, stirring the pot from time to time.
Woody Allen has conceded Ronan Farrow might be Frank Sinatra's biological son rather than his own in his new memoir.

When, in 2013, Mia Farrow said that Sinatra could be Ronan's father, noting: "We never really split up," Ronan responded on Twitter: "Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son."
Farrow is the son of actress Mia Farrow, who in 2013 admitted that some doubt surrounds her son's paternal heritage. Filmmaker Woody Allen and Mia Farrow were a couple when Ronan was born in 1987 but more than two decades later she told Vanity Fair that there is a possibility that her ex-husband, Frank Sinatra, might be the biological father.
Woody Allen said that he paşd lots of money for Ronan as a child support and if he is not his son then it would be too bad for Mia to hide this fact.
