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.
