SOPRANOS STAR James Gandolfini has left the bulk of his estimated $70 million (€54m) estate to his 13-year-old son and infant daughter.

The late actor, who died in Rome late last month, left millions of dollars to his wife and relatives.

The New York Post (reports that a will dated 19 December 2012 was filed on Tuesday in Manhattan Surrogate’s Court.

Gandolfini’s son, Michael, is to get the largest chunk through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21. He’ll split his father’s Italian property with 8-month-old half-sister Liliana when she turns 25.

The newspaper says the remainder of Gandolfini’s estate will be split among his wife, sisters and daughter.

Gandolfini grew up in Westwood, New Jersey. He left $200,000 each to his personal assistant and secretary.

The will is the first and primary filing of his estate; more filings are expected.
