Entering parenthood means acknowledging mortality.

Prior to having children most people don't give a will much thought, but when wee ones make their debut it's important that the parents plan guardianship and allocation of their assets. Otherwise, family battles and courtroom drama can ensue.

Surprisingly, Heath Ledger did not update his will after having daughter, Matilda with former fiancee, Michelle Williams. Luckily, People reports that the deceased actor's dad Kim Ledger said,

Matilda is our absolute priority and Michelle is an integral part of our family. They will be taken care of and that's how Heath would want it to be.

Have you detailed your wishes in a will?
