FRANK'S FIRST WIFE: NANCY SINATRA

In 2018, Frank's first wife and mother of his three children, Nancy Sinatra Snr, passed away at the age of 101. In a statement by the couple's first daughter, Nancy Sinatra Jnr, she confirmed the news of her mother's death. She wrote:

My mother passed away peacefully tonight at the age of 101. She was a blessing and the light of my life. ??."

The late Nancy was born Nancy Barbato in 1917. She met Frank when they were only teenagers, and after a few years of dating, the couple tied the knot in 1939.

Following their wedding, Frank and his new wife lived in New Jersey, where they both started their new lives. Nancy and her husband went on to have three children before separating in 1951.

FRANK AND AVA GARDNER

While Sinatra was still in his first marriage, he met the then famous actress, Ava Gardner, who he eventually married after his separation from Nancy.

While speaking about the famous couple's romance, Anthony Uzarowski explained what she believed was the reality for Gardner. She said:

"I think she was determined to find someone who would give her the kind of security and the kind of happiness that her parents had known. She always wanted that. And I think she found that in Frank."

FRANK AND MIA FARROW

In 1957 however, Ava's marriage to the famous singer ended, and almost ten years later, he got married to his third wife, Mia Farrow.

The couple tied the knot in 1966, and barely two years after, the marriage came to an end. Despite their failed marriage, Farrow, however, described her ex as the "love of her life."
