American actress Mia Farrow has admitted Frank Sinatra, and not Woody Allen, may have been the father of her son Ronan.

Speaking to Vanity Fair magazine in an exclusive interview published on Wednesday, Farrow described the crooner and film star, 29 years her senior, as the great love of her life.

Asked whether Ronan, 25, may actually have been fathered by Sinatra, Farrow said: "Possibly. We never really split up." Photos show Ronan and Sinatra with similar piercing blue eyes.

Farrow and Sinatra divorced in 1968 after two years of marriage. Farrow's subsequent relationship with Allen collapsed in scandal in 1992 when she discovered the Oscar-winning director was having an affair with her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Previn.

Allen and Soon-Yi went on to marry and Ronan no longer speaks to his father.

Ronan Farrow has previously described his father's relationship with his adopted sister as a "moral transgression".

Apart from his famous parentage, Ronan Farrow has made a name for himself as a child prodigy and one of the brightest minds of his generation.

He entered Bard College, new York, at 11 and graduated at 15, when he was admitted to Yale Law School.

No DNA tests have been conducted to determine the paternity of Ronan, a lawyer and former US global youth issues envoy.

If Sinatra had helped conceive Ronan, he would have been in his 70s at the time. He died in 1998 at the age of 82.

When Vanity Fair asked Sinatra's daughter Nancy about her treating Ronan as part of her family, she replied: "He is a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives".

Ronan took to Twitter to crack a joke about his mother's comments, saying: "Listen, we're all 'possibly' Frank Sinatra's son."
