The Sopranos star James Gandolfini has made sure his loved ones are well cared for by leaving the bulk of his estimated $70 million (£45.1 million) fortune to his "beloved" son.

The actor suffered a fatal heart attack in Rome, Italy last month (Jun13) while on vacation with 13-year-old Michael, who called hotel staff for help after his father fell ill.

In his will, filed at Manhattan Surrogate's Court in New York City on Tuesday (02Jul13), the star stipulated the teen will inherit the bulk of his estate through a trust set aside for him until he turns 21. He also gets his father's clothing, jewellery and the majority of his property.

Gandolfini's eight-month-old daughter Liliana, from his second marriage to Deborah Lin, will also inherit the actor's estate in Italy along with Michael when she turns 25, but he wrote in his will: "It is my hope and desire that they will continue to own said property and keep it in our family for as long as possible."

The generous star also bequeathed large sums of money to close friends, including personal assistant Paulette Flynn Bourne and friend Doug Katz, whom he hoped would use the money for his son.
