Bruce Willis fans have ‘tears streaming down their face’ as wife Emma shares heart-wrenching video amid dementia battle
BRUCE Willis’ wife has shared another touching tribute to her beloved husband, as he battles with dementia.
And fans have been moved to tears.
Emma Heming Willis has been sharing several special memories this week in honor of Bruce’s 68th birthday along with their 14th wedding anniversary.
Most recently, she posted a throwback video from 2019 filmed by Bruce’s first wife, Demi Moore.
In the mini movie, set to the Coldplay song Fix You, Emma and Bruce celebrated their 10th anniversary by renewing their wedding vows.
The ceremony took place outside as the sun went down, only enhancing the romantic moment.
Emma wore a white dress with one sleeve off the shoulder.
Bruce matched her in a white button down shirt and white pants. He added a beige hat and beige sandals for style.
Their daughters, Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn, served as flower girls, while Bruce’s daughters with ex Demi, Rumer and Scout, served as the band.
It all culminated with a renewal kiss, followed by a smiling Bruce tossing his hat into the air in joy.
Emma explained in the emotional caption: “On our 10th wedding anniversary we decided to renew our vows in the same place we said ‘I do’ back in 2009.
“I’m so happy we did.”
She continued, adding: “Seize every opportunity to unite and celebrate with family and friends. Those are the moments and beautiful pockets of memories that you get to hold on to for a lifetime. And we get to keep those memories safe and alive for the ones that might not be able to.”
Beneath her, fans shared their love.
“With tears streaming down my face I say thank you for sharing this beautiful video & your continued love story,” one person commented.
“I’m bawling,” another added, while a third echoed: “I just don’t have words. The grief must weigh so heavy. It breaks my heart.”
As a fourth expressed: “If only everyone could feel such love. Thank you for sharing your joy with us. I hope there are many more moments to celebrate as you navigate this new world.”
The pair got married in Turks and Caicos on March 21, 2009 and the wedding was attended by Bruce’s daughters and ex-wife.
The model and her husband then had a civil ceremony in Beverly Hills six days later.
Earlier in the day, Emma shared a photo of a beautiful arrangement of flowers she was gifted, recalling how she told her friend Juliya that her anniversary was coming up.
“Cut to, I get a text from my friend later that day that said she left ‘a little something’ for me at my door. It was this sweet bouquet of flowers (pictured) with a note that said Happy Anniversary amongst other things,” she wrote in the caption.
“It got me thinking about how hard these types of ‘special occasions’ can be on caregivers. When usually our person would acknowledge the event, now their changing brains just can’t. And that is what it is.
“So my point is this. If you know someone that is looking after someone else, don’t ask what you can do, just do. This random act of kindness will honestly stay with me for a long time,” she wrote.
It’s been a week of celebrating, as on Sunday, Bruce celebrated his 68th birthday with his entire family gathered.
Emma, Demi, and Bruce’s kids Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah were all present for the party along with a few other guests.
In the video, everyone – including the actor – sang Happy Birthday.
Bruce appeared in good spirits, singing at least a few words to the song, chatting with revelers, and blowing out the candles on his pie.
As everyone sang, he smiled, talked, and made gestures with his hands.
At one point, he appeared to stumble slightly, perhaps simply losing his footing.
He stumbled a bit again after giving a major effort to blow out the few candles stuck inside the pie.
The entire family, including Bruce, had a laugh at the lighthearted moment.
After the song concluded, the group shouted: “Hip-Hip Hooray.”
Bruce appeared to make a lassoing motion with his hands, even shouting “hooray” at one point.
He was embraced and kissed by a few of the guests present.
Demi captioned the post: “Happy birthday, BW! So glad we could celebrate you today. Love you and love our family. Thank you to everyone for the love and warm wishes — we all feel them.”
And Emma says there are many more milestones and celebrations to come.
Their daughter Mabel will be celebrating her 11th birthday soon, Evelyn will be turning nine and they are eagerly awaiting the birth of Demi and Bruce’s first grandchild.
Emma ended by saying that they have “so many things to be grateful for.”
