Matilda to Inherit Heath Ledger's Estate

Matilda Ledger won't be left out in the cold.

According to new reports, Heath Ledger's daughter with Michelle Williams, will inherit her dad's entire estate, estimated to be worth $20 million.

When Heath died from an accidental prescription overdose last January, the 28-year-old actor had named his parents and sisters as the beneficiaries in his will. You see, the will was made before Matilda was born, and there was talk that Michelle would lodge a claim in order to get Matilda taken care of. But Heath's dad, Kim Ledger,  is saying that it's not necessary.   "There is no claim. Our family has gifted everything to Matilda," he told the News Ltd paper.   I'm not surprised. They seem like a very loving family, who adored Heath, and love Michelle and Matilda like their own. I'm sure they are acting how they think Heath would have wanted.
