Mia Farrow's 25-year-old son, Ronan, has been making headlines lately, and today it was confirmed that he'll host a weekday show on MSNBC. The show is expected to launch in mid-January, and his TV news comes just a day after Penguin announced the acquisition of his upcoming book, Pandora's Box: How American Military Aid Creates America's Enemies, which is scheduled for a 2015 release. Earlier this month, Ronan found himself at the center of pop-culture buzz when Mia revealed that Frank Sinatra could "possibly" be Ronan's father — not Woody Allen, Mia's longtime partner who was previously believed to be his dad. Mia explained that she and her ex-husband Frank "never really split up," even while she was with Woody for over a decade. The paternity debate was further fueled by comments about Ronan from Frank's daughter Nancy, who said, "He's a big part of us, and we are blessed to have him in our lives."
Ronan, an attorney based in NYC, has taken it all in stride, joking about the buzz on Twitter.
Listen, we're all *possibly* Frank Sinatra's son.

Back in 2012, he also tweeted about his interesting family circumstances on Father's Day, taking a swipe at Woody for getting together with Ronan's adopted sister Soon-Yi Previn.
Happy father's day -- or as they call it in my family, happy brother-in-law's day.

This isn't the first time Ronan's found himself in the media spotlight, as he's made a name for himself as a journalist, a human rights activist, and a child prodigy. Keep reading to learn more about Ronan and his background:
