O’Brien doppelganger claims talk show host is his real dad — Conan rebuffs him with a joke
Conan O’Brien has responded to a claim from a man who bears a resemblance to the late-night host that he is O’Brien’s secret son.
“A kid in New Jersey is falsely claiming to be my illegitimate son,” O’Brien said on Twitter. “For the record, I have three children: Neve, Beckett, and @RonanFarrow.”

It was unclear whether the allegation was sincere, or the man’s attempt to humorously draw attention to his remarkable resemblance to O’Brien.
But at least O’Brien’s tweet ends the mystery of whether Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra is Ronan Farrow’s real father.
