Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming has shared a sweet video of her husband just weeks after confirming he’s been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia.
Emma, 44, took to her Instagram story and uploaded a throwback clip of Bruce reading from a magazine.
In the short video, the Die Hard actor is wearing a white T-shirt and a black puffer 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 about it?” Emma asked, as Bruce replied proudly: “How ‘bout it? I’m crazy about it!”
Emma captioned her post: “What’s this new memory thingy on IG!? OMG my biggest fan. I’m in love with him.”
Earlier this week, Emma gave a heartbreaking update on how she is dealing with Bruce’s diagnosis of ‘untreatable’ frontotemporal dementia.
Posting a photo of herself sharing a hug with a dementia specialist called Teepa Snow, Emma wrote: “I’m grateful I had the opportunity to work with @teepasnows_pac who has helped me add to my dementia care toolbox.
“She’s a loving, compassionate and skilled leader in this space who navigates herself with pure empathy. She’s a gift.”
Father-of-five Bruce quit acting last year after being diagnosed with aphasia - a condition that affects speech and language - which has now sadly “progressed”.
Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is the most common form of dementia in people under 60 and symptoms include personality changes, obsessive behaviour and speaking 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 sadly “not treatable” and it “has progressed”.
It read: “Our family wanted to start 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 the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father, and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.”
The statement went on to detail the “painful” disease the Pulp Fiction star is facing.
“Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).
“Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”
Willis’ ex-wife Demi and daughter Tallulah shared the same statement on their own Instagram accounts.
