Actor James Gandolfini has left the bulk of his estimated $70 million estate to his 13-year-old son and infant daughter.

The late "Sopranos" star also left millions to his wife and relatives.

The New York Post reported a will dated Dec. 19 was filed 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 his half-sister, 8-month-old Liliana, when she turns 25.

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

He left $200,000 each to his personal assistants and secretary.

The will is the first and primary filing of his estate; more documents are expected to be filed.

Gandolfini died June 19.
