Sopranos actor John Ventimiglia’s daughter Odele dead at 25

Sopranos actor John Ventimiglia’s daughter Odele has died three months after giving birth at the age of 25.

Odele’s mother, Belinda Cape, shared the news in a recent Facebook post, writing that she and her family are “heartbroken” over the unexpected loss, which came shortly after welcoming her granddaughter, Shiloh.

“Heartbroken to have to post our darling Odele’s funeral notice. 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,” Cape wrote.

“Odele was greatly loved, and leaves a huge hole in our lives.”

Odele’s sister, Lucinda Ventimiglia, also shared a tribute to her sibling, writing alongside a carousel of photos on Instagram, “Words will never be enough to express the grief we are all feeling. I loved my little sister a lot and I will spend the rest of my life searching for her in everything.

“my family and i are so grateful for all the care and support we have been receiving during this impossible time,” she continued. “it has never been more clear how much she meant to so many people.”

Odele’s cause of death has not been shared.

A rep for John, who portrayed Artie Bucco on the classic HBO series, didn’t return Page Six’s request for comment.

In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be made to a GoFundMe that was set up to ease the cost of Odele’s baby daughter Shiloh’s future education. The fundraiser’s goal was $50,000, and it’s already approaching $52,000.

John’s former The Sopranos co-star, Stevie Van Zandt, and wife Maureen contributed $500.

“Deepest Love and Condolences, Maureen and Stevie Van Zandt,” they signed their donation.
