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.”

In a YouTube video, the man claims his mother worked at NBC in the early 1990s — as did O’Brien — and was fired after becoming pregnant. He suggests that O’Brien help put him through college.

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.
