I've read that Queen Marie was very sympathetic towards the Bahai religion.

She was interested in that religion in the last period of life of her very Catholic husband.

Basically yes, she had an affair with Prince Barbu Ştirbey. It was reported that he wad the actual father of Queen Marie's youngest two children, Princess Ileana and Prince Mircea.
While there isn't any actual evidence that he was Ileana's father, it is instead likely that he was Mircea's father.

Prince Barbu Stirbeu was all his life very close to the Queen but he could not stay in the country during 1930-1940.

Did the king just call them his so that they would still have the same as their mother?

Rumors do not really belong to official history. King Ferdinand did never behave with his six children as if they weren't his own children.

I suppose that - had Ferdinand had doubts about the paternity of his children - he would have recognized them as his own children to avoid scandals. But who knows if he had such doubts.

The fact that one story is the "official" story doesn't necessarily mean that it is true and correct. On the contrary, there are many cases where the rumors are much more correct then the official history.

Who is the little boy? He is too old to be HM Mihai I.

Far too old to be Michael - he wouldn't be born for another 5 years.

I don't think the boy is a close relative of Ferdinand I's. His sons would have been too old to be the boy, and his grandsons/nephews too young.

It may have been a nephew of Marie's. Her sisters had sons who would have been the boy's age.

Yes the future King Michael would only have been a little over a year old,maybe he's the son of one of Queen Marie's daughters?

Well, Elisabeth, Nicholas, and Mircea had no children, Maria's eldest child wasn't born until 1923, Ileana's eldest was born in 1932. Carol had two sons - Carol Lambrino and Michael I, who would have been 2 and 1 respectively (I earlier mixed up Michael's birth year with his first accession).

The grandchildren of Ferdinand's elder brother, Wilhelm, would have been too young (the eldest being about 2 at the time) and the grandchildren of his younger brother, Karl Anton, had yet to be born.

The siblings of Ferdinand's wife, Marie, did have sons more the right age though. Her brother had no children. Her sister Victoria Melita had a son (Vladimir Kirillovich) who was 5, as was the grandson (Hans Albrecht) of her other sister, Alexandra. Marie's youngest sister, Beatrice, had sons who would have been 12 (Alvaro), 10 (Alonso), and 9 (Ataúlfo).

He looks like he could have been around 9, so perhaps he is Ataúlfo, Beatrice's son.

Is it true that the queens heart is buried separate from her body, and is in a jeweled casket?

Although Ferdinand I became King of Romania in 1914 on the death of his uncle, Carol I, the outbreak of the First World War delayed his coronation.
Ferdinand was crowned in Transylvania in 1922.

He was crownded in Alba Iulia but not inside the Orthodox Cathedral but in front of it. He was a very devouted Catholic.
