Actor James Gandolfini has left the bulk of his estimated $70m (£46m) estate to his 13-year-old son and eight-month-old girl.

The Sopranos star, who died suddenly on June 19, also left millions to his wife and relatives.

The New York Post reports that a will dated December 19 was filed 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 will split his father's Italian property with his half-sister, Liliana, when she turns 25.

The Post says the rest of Gandolfini's estate will be split among his wife, sisters and daughter.

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

More documents are expected to be filed.
