Epic should show the sum of story points of the child Stories

When an Epic is created a light weight grooming could lead already to a certain value of the Epic story points. 

During the detailed grooming the Epic is gradually split-up into "Stories". Each of these stories also get a an estimated weight / complexity indication via story points. Is it possible that the sum of these Story story points can be seen on Epic level? As a separated field (so the initial story points from the light weight grooming are still there) or bij automatically replacing the initial Epic story point values with the sum of the child Stories story points.
