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

The late star of HBO’s “The Sopranos” left millions of dollars to his wife and relatives.

The New York Post (http://bit.ly/19SMBxF ) reports 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 8-month-old half-sister Liliana when she turns 25.

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

Gandolfini grew up in New Jersey. He died last month. He left $200,000 each to his personal assistant and secretary.

The will is the first and primary filing of his estate; more filings are expected.

    Great actor, great family man. In death he still took care of his family. Let’s hope his son doesn’t throw it all away on drugs like other kids of the rich and famous.
