It takes Todoroki three years to figure it out.
In retrospect, he chooses to blame the fact that he didn't want to know. Todoroki likes to think of himself as reasonably perceptive. He is quick to cotton on when people are hiding things from him and his reflexes can anticipate an enemy's action down to a millisecond. So he chalks the fact that it takes him three whole years to realize how wrong he was about Midoriya being All Might's lovechild up to willful ignorance.

Aizawa Shouta makes a mistake.
