James Gandolfini was vacationing with his son, Michael, in Rome when the 51-year-old actor died of a heart attack.

(PIX11) — Actor James Gandolfini, who died unexpectedly of a heart attack last month, left the bulk of his $70 million-plus estate to his 13-year-old son.

The boy, Michael, has received a trust that has been set aside for him until he turns 21, according to the New York Post. It was Michael who reportedly discovered his father unresponsive in their Rome hotel suite on June 19.

Another large portion of Gandolfini’s estate will be given to his 8-month-old daughter, Liliana, including Gandolfini’s Italian property, that she can split with her half-brother Michael when she turns 25.

The late actor also left significant amounts of money to his wife Deborah, sisters and other extended family members. His personal assistant will receive $200,000.

Gandolfini signed his last will and testament in December, just six months before he died at the age of 51.
