Bruce Willis’s wife, Emma Heming, shared a sweet video of her husband just weeks after confirming he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
Emma, 44, took to her Instagram story and uploaded a clip of Bruce reading a magazine.
In the short video, the Die Hard actor dons a white T-shirt and black jacket as he praises his wife of almost 14 years.
Reciting a line from the magazine, Bruce said: “USA Weekly interview with Emma-Heming Willis, founder and CEO of Cocobaba.”
“How are you?” Emma asked, as Bruce proudly replied, “What’s up? I’m crazy about it!”
Emma captioned her post: “What is this new memory thing on IG!? OMG my biggest fan. I’m in love with him.”
Earlier this week, Emma gave a heartbreaking update on how she’s dealing with Bruce’s diagnosis of “intractable” frontotemporal dementia.
Posting a photo of herself sharing a hug with a dementia specialist named Teepa Snow, Emma wrote: “I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to work with @teepasnows_pac who helped me add to my caring toolbox. dementia.
“She is a loving, compassionate and skilled leader in this space who navigates on pure empathy. She is a gift.
Bruce, a father of five, stopped acting last year after being diagnosed with aphasia, a condition that affects speech and language, which has sadly now “progressed.”
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the most common form of dementia in people under the age of 60, and symptoms include personality changes, obsessive behavior, and speech difficulties.
The actor’s daughter, Rumer, 34, whom he shares with ex-wife Demi Moore, shared the heartbreaking news on Instagram.
The post explained that Bruce’s condition was unfortunately “not treatable” and “has progressed.”
It read: “Our family wanted to begin by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis.
“In that spirit, we wanted to provide you with an update on our loving husband, father and friend as we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.”
The statement went on to detail the “painful” illness facing the Pulp Fiction star.
“Since we announced Bruce’s aphasia diagnosis in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).
“Unfortunately, the challenges with communication are just one symptom of the illness Bruce is facing. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”
Willis’ ex-wife Demi and their daughter Tallulah shared the same statement on their own Instagram accounts.
