The past few years have not been easy for Bruce Willis and his family. The actor was identified as having aphasia, a cognitive impairment that affects a person’s capacity for verbal and even written communication.
The family is now welcoming some good news that will undoubtedly make everyone smile as they recover from the news of this chronic diagnosis.
Due to a disease that made it all but impossible for him to continue acting, Bruce Willis revealed in March 2022 that he would be retiring from acting. Aphasia, a cognitive illness that affects and inhibits a person’s capacity to express and comprehend words, was identified as the actor’s condition.
Since his family revealed his diagnosis and decision to leave acting, Willis has avoided the media. But every now and again, a member of his family will upload a photo of Willis to let us know he’s doing fine.
Despite how challenging recent months have been, the family appears to have lately experienced some positive news. He was previously married to Demi Moore, but he is currently with Emma Heming Willis.
Bruce was so brave—a true gentleman in his own raucous manner. He volunteered to escort me to my car when I stated it was time for me to return home. Like a young child who didn’t want to miss the ice-cream truck, he was quite excited about it. Moore once recalled her first encounter with Willis: “I got a wave of schoolgirl flutters when he asked for my number.
In 1987, Moore and Willis exchanged vows. They had three children together: Rumer was born in 1988, Scout was born in 1991, and Tallulah was born in 1994.
In 1998, only four short years after having their final child together, they made the decision to divorce.
In 2000, Bruce declared his continued love for Demi and spoke of their shared parenting experience. We will continue to raise our three children together, and our relationship is probably as strong as it has ever been, he said. We are conscious of our lifetime commitment to our children.
Willis and Moore have always kept their daughters out of the spotlight. Rumer expressed her gratitude for this. She told Larry King as an adult, “I guess at that time I didn’t have as much of an idea of the public side of things to have that effect me as much.
I’m incredibly appreciative of the effort my parents made at the time.
They always made an effort to have all family gatherings together and to maintain our family as an one entity rather than two different entities, which I believe had a significant impact.
She would frequently be in the spotlight as the daughter of two well-known celebrities, which wasn’t necessarily something she desired. I think growing up with your whole life kind of on display and having people have an opinion about it was one of the hardest parts, she added.
“That can sometimes be really hard and really get you down before you learn how to kind of grow a strong skin or to really just have confidence in who you are without allowing other people’s thoughts affect that.”
In the middle of the 2000s, the paparazzi press and blogs in the US began to expand, and prominent bloggers like Perez Hilton harassed Rumer online.
Of course, that was wholly unacceptable. Later, Perez Hilton expressed regret for some of his actions.
“They claimed my jaw was big. They called me a “potato head,” recalls Willis. “I didn’t really comprehend having value in myself yet when I was 14 or 15 years old. My thought process then turned to, “Okay, so if I get slender or if I wear the part or portray myself in a really hypersexual manner and dress this way, then I’ll be valued.”
After experiencing online bullying as a child, Willis made careful to take action on her own social media platforms. She now has more than 900,000 Instagram followers and makes an effort to be upbeat and transparent about her own challenges.
She has recently revealed something really positive—she is expecting a child! Together with her boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas, she is expecting their first child. This will be the first grandchild for Willis and Moore.
The 34-year-old expectant mother shared the wonderful news on Instagram along with some gorgeous photos. The images show Rumer Willis’ unborn child being held and kissed by lover Thomas.
Of course, the entire Willis-Moore family is extremely happy. Entering my sexy kooky unhinged grandma phase, Demi Moore wrote on her own Instagram.
Since the family has experienced a lot of uncertainty and suffering this year, this wonderful news will undoubtedly make everyone smile.
