Reported on-line at TMZ.com this morning:

Heath Ledger's Entire Estate Left to Daughter
Posted Sep 28th 2008 7:04AM by TMZ Staff

After months of closed-door court meetings -- all of Heath Ledger's estimated $20 mil estate will go to his 2-year old daughter Matilda Rose.

According to news reports, Heath's dad Kim Ledger says the will originally had all the assets divided up to his parents and sisters, but Heath's family thought the right thing to do was to give it all up -- for the benefit of Matilda.

Heath Ledger died of an accidental prescription pill overdose in January.

Dawn is coming,
Open your eyes...

well good for them!  It's too bad there was all of this tabloid speculation about it!  I imagine that as Matilda's only custodian that means Michelle would be managing the estate until Matilda is of age.

This is good news -- I'm sure Heath would be pleased to know that the family chose to put his daughter first.

$20 million?  That's a surprising figure.

Great news......and no doubt, how Heath would have wanted it.
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

$20 million?  That's a surprising figure.

According to an article at Yahoo! News, that's $16.6 million US.

I'm glad little Matlida is getting her dear father's estate. And yes, he would have WANTED it that way for her. :)
