    Default Conan?... Dad?...

    Gregory Keating, a New Jersey man, is claiming that he’s the son of show host Conan O’Brien.

    Keating, who has red hair and bears a resemblance to O’Brien, released a YouTube clip titled “Conan? Dad?” saying he’s related to him.



    “My mother conceived me in 1993 as she worked as a producer for ill-fated ‘NBC News at Sunrise,’ located in 30 Rockefeller Plaza, it was only three floors above the ‘Late Night’ studio. Despite her hard work and dedication, she was fired from her job when she got pregnant,” he said in the video.

    He added: “Growing up was a challenge for me; I was born with a full head of red hair.”

    He also said that he bears a resemblance to the former President of Finland, Tarja Kaarina Halonen, which is a long-running gag on O’Brien’s show. Keating also says he can’t dance and is awkward with girls.

    Keating’s video concludes with him saying that “I want to share with you, grow with you, dominate late-night television with you, together as father and son … Or we could just go fishing.”
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    I think every person who is famous has at least, one kid claiming to be theirs. Goes with the territory, I guess.

    That's funny.

    Okay, here's a Sally Jesse Raphael show reference. I should probably get points for that alone, but anyway...

    I remember stumbling upon her show one day, must've been back in the 90's, when she had a young man on who claimed to be the long-lost "illegitimate" son of country music legend Conway Twitty. Dude was a definite dead ringer for Conway, and he even had Conway's tight-knit, curly hair. The young man had tried to contact Conway, to no avail. He seemed sincere in saying that he didn't want any money, he just wanted to talk to Conway and perhaps have Conway acknowledge that yes, he was probably his dad.

    Basically, the story was, his mom had worked at a nightclub way back when, and had a one night stand with Conway. And I guess as he got older and started asking questions, she had eventually told him that Conway was his father.

    So, the young man went so far as to go on a fan cruise in order to meet Conway. The cruise featured a very brief photo op with Conway for each fan. And he had actual video footage of his meet/photo op. He walked up to Conway, shook his hand, and while they were posing for the picture, he told Conway who he was, and that he believed Conway was his father. Then he walked away.

    The "uh-oh" look on Conway's face was priceless, to say the least.

    According to the young man, later that evening, the cruise ship's security chief came knocking on his door, and escorted him to a room where Conway was waiting. They sat down and talked for a few minutes. Again, according to the "son", Conway acknowledged that he vaguely remembered his mom, but was non-committal as to whether he was this guy's father. And allegedly, Conway agreed to meet with him later, in order to have a paternity test done.

    So later, back in the states, he tried to make follow-up contact, paternity appointments were made and broken, and eventually, the young man went to Conway's home. He identified himself at the gate, and why he was there, and was not allowed in. He left, never speaking to Conway again. No paternity test.

    Anyway, I thought that was a cool story, and I believe the guy was probably credible. He didn't seem like the type who wanted to "cash in", but who knows?

    So I guess the moral of the story is....wrap that rascal? Keep it in your pants? It can sometimes suck to be a celebrity?

    Did Conway explain to him that it was the want to in her eyes?

    I'm not sure, but he could tell she'd never been that far before.

    well I don't know what the relationship is now, but Hank Williams Jr fought the paternity and inheritance of half sister Jett Williams, all the way to the US Supreme Court

    stranger things have been known to happen but this just reeks of publicity stunt

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    She won her case, and apparently she and Hank Jr get along well enough to handle their common family business matters.
