After born child

The Story: Harold died in June 2014. He left a wife, Emily, and two children living at the time of his death. His Last Will and Testament devised 50% of his residuary estate to Emily and 50% to be divided among his children. Emily gave birth to Harold’s third child in December 2014. Question: Does Harold’s third child inherit anything? Answer: Yes, the third child will inherit 1/3 of the 50% residuary estate. When a decedent fails to provide in his will for any of his children born or adopted after the making of his last will, such child shall receive a share in the estate of the decedent equal in value to that which he would have received if the decedent had die intestate, unless it appear from the will that such omission was intentional. See IC 29-3-8
