A Sydney woman says she is the unrecognized daughter of the late Frank Sinatra and Hungarian actress Eva Bartok.

Deana Moore, who lives in the Sydney beach suburb of Avalon, was quoted in Monday's Sydney Daily Telegraph as saying that she still hoped for a few words of recognition in Sinatra's will - even if she saw none of his fortune.Sinatra, the world's greatest singing star of the past half-century, died in Los Angeles of a heart attack last Thursday. He was 82.

The Telegraph said she was born 40 years ago after an affair between Bartok and Sinatra, who was then breaking up from second wife Ava Gardner.
