When Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow announced their marriage to the world in 1966, everyone was ecstatic.

In today’s video, we’re going to take a close examination at Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra’s many doomed relationships, particularly their disastrous marriage to one another. Make sure you stick around, though, because we’re also going to reveal the compelling reasons why Ronan Farrow just might be the illegitimate child of Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra!
Frank Sinatra’s Disastrous Past Relationships
Mia Farrow was hardly Frank Sinatra’s first serious relationship. Before settling down with Farrow, he had married two other women: Nancy Barbato and Ava Gardner. Both relationships had ended in heartbreak.
Frank Sinatra met Nancy Barbato while he was working as a lifeguard, and agreed to marry her in 1939. At first glance, the two seemed to have a picturesque marriage. Together, they had three children, named Nancy, Frank Jr., and Tina. However, Frank Sinatra was secretly involved in countless affairs. He was known to have affairs with Marilyn Maxwell, Lana Turner, and Joi Lansing, among many others. After many years suffering Sinatra’s infidelity, Nancy Barbato finally ended things. The two divorced in 1951.
Not even a year later, Frank Sinatra married A-list actress Ava Gardner. This marriage turned out to be even worse than the last! Both were notorious for their affairs with others, and they had many public fights. They separated in 1953, and Gardner finally chose to file for divorce in 1954. It took several years for the divorce to be finalized, and they were officially separated in 1957. However, oddly enough, the two managed to remain very close friends.
With all of this baggage, it’s no surprise that Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra had such a turbulent marriage together.
Mia Farrow and Frank Sinatra’s Marriage
Frank Sinatra married Mia Farrow in 1966. Frank Sinatra was 50 years old at the time, while Mia Farrow was only 21. There was a lot of controversy surrounding the huge age difference in their relationships, but it was rather commonplace for older men to date younger women at the time. While this is thankfully a practice that has dwindled somewhat over time, it is still seen as relatively normal today, as well.
The two met on the set of Von Ryan’s Express while filming together, and soon became inseparable. At first, the two seemed like absolute lovebirds. Frank Sinatra wanted Mia Farrow to be involved in as many films with him as possible. However, Farrow grew tired of following him around on film sets, and decided to act in the famous film Rosemary’s Baby. When filming went on longer than expected, and cut into time that Sinatra wanted to be spent working on his films, he grew upset. Before long, he decided he wanted a divorce. The relationship was over as quickly as it began, and while the two were able to set aside their differences and remain friends, it seemed the romantic aspect of their relationship was long over. However, it would eventually come back to haunt them years later.
Is Ronan Farrow Frank Sinatra’s Illegitimate Child?
Mia Farrow began a relationship with film director Woody Allen in 1980. She appeared in numerous films of his, including Crimes and Misdemeanors, Shadow and Fog, and Husbands and Wives.
On December 19th, 1987, Mia Farrow gave birth to a lovely baby boy named Satchel Ronan O’Sullivan Farrow, although he simply goes by Ronan Farrow today. At the time, everyone assumed that he was the son of Woody Allen. However, in an interview with Vanity Fair in 2013, Mia Farrow dropped some hints that Ronan may not be Woody Allen’s son at all. She suggested the possibility that he was truly the son of Frank Sinatra, and added that she continued her relationship with Sinatra even after their divorce.
Mia Farrow wasn’t the only one to suggest that Ronan Farrow might not be Woody Allen’s biological son, however.
At one point, Woody Allen himself announced that, while some part of him believed Ronan Farrow to be his son, he wouldn’t bet his life on it. He later discussed that he had reason to believe Mia Farrow was involved in an affair against him. Furthermore, Ronan Farrow bears a striking resemblance to Frank Sinatra.
However, there’s more to Woody Allen and Mia Farrow’s relationship. The two parted on incredibly bitter terms, due to a shocking affair with another of Mia Farrow’s family members! Make sure you stick around until the very end, because we’re going to reveal the real reason why Woody Allen and Mia Farrow separated.
Mia Farrow’s Work as an Activist
Despite a difficult romantic past, Mia Farrow has worked hard to put some good into the world. Not only has she worked as an actress and model, but Mia Farrow has also worked as an activist. She’s been involved in numerous charities, and become involved in humanitarian efforts, as well. Throughout her career, she’s won many awards for her acting, but she’s also won a lot of awards for her activism.
Farrow has especially focused on children’s rights activism within regions of Africa, and also worked hard to eradicate polio, a deadly disease that is particularly prevalent in some parts of Africa.
Furthermore, Mia Farrow has adopted many children, and is now a mother of fourteen, with ten of her children having been adopted. Tragically, however, she has lost three of those children due to various horrible circumstances. One child, Tam Farrow, died of heart failure when he was just 21 years old. Another child, Lark Previn, died at 35 after battling an unknown illness. Finally, her child Thaddeus Farrow died in a supposed car accident in 2016, but the true cause of death was later ruled to be suicide.
Despite these tragic losses, it’s clear that Mia Farrow has worked hard to take care of as many people as possible, and her willingness to adopt so many children is a true testament to her kindness.
The Reason Woody Allen and Mia Farrow Separated
While Woody Allen and Mia Farrow never married, the two remained close partners for many years before their eventual separation in 1992. While she was at Allen’s apartment, Farrow made a shocking discovery. She found photographs of her adopted daughter, Soon-Yi Farrow, in the nude. She was 21 at the time. Farrow was absolutely horrified and disgusted by the discovery, and immediately called her long-time friend and romantic partner, Frank Sinatra.
Sinatra was furious when he heard the news, and even threatened to break Woody Allen’s legs! While Mia Farrow obviously never took him up on the offer, she was beside herself in anger. She confronted Woody Allen, and she had a long and painful discussion for at least four hours. Woody Allen at first claimed he had made a mistake, and then changed his tune, explaining he was in love with Soon-Yi.
Woody Allen and Mia Farrow separated, and Woody Allen married Soon-Yi. The two remain together to this day, while Mia Farrow is still, understandably, bitter about the entire affair.
