Wife Emma shares heart-wrenching lines.

The former actor Bruce Willis, who suffers from dementia, turns 69 years old. As often happens, his wife also shares a picture from earlier days on this special day – along with words that touch the heart.

Former action star Bruce Willis, who suffers from dementia, is celebrating his 69th birthday. For his family, it’s a day of joy, but also of nostalgia. On Instagram, wife Emma Heming-Willis, 45, returns with touching words and a photo from earlier days, when their daughter Mabel, 11, was still a baby.

With closed eyes and a soulful smile on his lips, Bruce Willis holds his little child tightly in his arms. Mabel was probably just a few months old at that time. Emma shares a special characteristic of her husband.

She writes: “What you may not know, but may imagine: being in his arms is […] the safest place in the whole world.” Bruce is “a true gentleman.”

Emma continues: “He has so much love to give and to share. That’s what I get to see, his true essence. I can tell you, he is so pure and always so good.” Finally, she wishes her husband a happy birthday with the words: “Happy birthday, my darling. You are the gift that keeps on giving,” and emphasizes: “Just like you, we love him.”

Bruce Willis received a dementia diagnosis in February 2023. After Bruce Willis’ ex-wife Demi Moore, 61, his current wife Emma Heming-Willis, and his daughters Rumer, 35, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 30, made his aphasia diagnosis public in March 2022, they had the sad confirmation nearly a year later: The actor has been diagnosed with dementia.

In another joint statement on the website of the “Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration” in February 2023, Willis’ family announced that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, also known as FTD.

“Holidays are tough. Anniversaries are tough.” Since then, especially his wife Emma and daughter Tallulah have occasionally provided updates on the health condition of the 69-year-old, who had to end his career due to his illness. Just in December, Emma also revealed on Instagram how challenging it is to celebrate anniversaries with her husband.

‘It has changed my life’: Tallulah Willis publicly reveals autism diagnosis.”

Tallulah Willis has already spoken publicly about her depression and eating disorders, and now she has shared another diagnosis with the public. Autism has been diagnosed in the daughter of actor Bruce Willis.

Tallulah Willis publicly revealed on Instagram that she has been diagnosed with autism. The daughter of action hero Bruce Willis and actress Demi Moore posted a short video on her account, showing her as a young girl with her famous father. The footage appears to have been taken in 2004 at the premiere of “The Whole Ten Yards” in Los Angeles. At that time, Tallulah was ten years old. While Bruce Willis answers questions from journalists, his daughter strokes his head and kneads his ear. “Tell me you’re autistic without telling me you’re autistic,” the 30-year-old wrote alongside the clip.

Under the post, numerous comments from her approximately 400,000 followers accumulated. Many praised Tallulah Willis for her courage in going public with the diagnosis. One fan wanted to know if autism had already been diagnosed in her childhood. In response, the American said, “Honestly, this is the first time I’ve shared my diagnosis with the public. I found out about it in the summer, and it changed my life.”

This is not the first time that Tallulah Willis has spoken publicly about her health. In May of last year, she published an essay in the US edition of Vogue, in which she openly revealed the demons she had been battling. In her twenties, she was diagnosed with depression, then ADHD, anorexia, and later borderline personality disorder. “While I was dealing with my body dysmorphia and displaying it on Instagram, my father was suffering in silence,” she wrote at the time.

Bruce Willis suffers from a rare form of dementia. In February 2023, the family made the illness public. In her Vogue essay, Tallulah Willis revealed that initially, she was too sick herself to support her father. Instead, she often took his behavior personally and began to doubt herself again, thinking, “I’m not pretty enough for my mother, I’m not interesting enough for my father.”

She has since accepted that her father is ill and tries to gather as many memories as possible. The fact that Tallulah Willis has now chosen a joint recording with her father to talk about her autism diagnosis is surely no coincidence.
