    Sopranos star John Ventimiglia's 25 year old daughter has sadly died just months after giving birth, with the cause of death not yet confirmed.

    John Ventimiglia is a 59-year-old American actor who is best-known for his portrayal of Artie Bucco in the HBO television series The Sopranos.

    His daughter Odele, 25, welcomed a daughter of her own in November 2022, a baby named Shiloh.

    And now the Ventimiglia and Cape families have taken to social media to share the news that Odele died on January 12.

    In an emotional Facebook post, Odele's mum Belinda broke the news of her daughter's death.

    "Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele's funeral notice," she penned on the social media platform.

    She went on: "Her sister Lucinda and I have been overwhelmed by the messages of support and love we have received, and your remembrances of how cherished Odele was to so many.

    "Odele was greatly loved and leaves a huge hole in our lives."

    Belinda continued: "Odele is survived by her sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, mother, Belinda Cape, father John Ventimiglia, and her beloved daughter Shiloh."

    Announcing that the funeral would be held in Brooklyn, Belinda asked mourners to donate to Shiloh’s future education costs instead of sending or bringing floral tributes.

    Odele's sister Lucinda then took to Instagram where she spoke of the love she had for her "little sister", explaining how "words will never be enough to express the grief" that the family are feeling.

    She went on: "I will spend the rest of my life searching for her in everything," before concluding with: "My family and I are so grateful for all the care and support we have been receiving during this impossible time. 

    "It has never been more clear how much she meant to so many people."
