Bruce Willis’ Wife Shares Heartfelt Video On Husband’s Birthday


Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Hemming has shared an emotional video to show the reality of living with a loved one who is battling dementia.

Last month, Bruce Willis was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, which leads to changes in personality, behaviour, language and movement.

Willis was previously diagnosed with Asphasia last year, after experiencing difficulties with language and speech.

“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)”, his family said in a statement.

“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”. 

“swollen eyes”

Since then, Emma Hemming has been documentung a day in her husband’s life since his diagnosis.

Sharing the sad reality of the situation, Emma Willis wrote the following.

“I have started the morning by crying as you can see by my swollen eyes”, Hemming wrote.  “I always get this message where people always tell me, ‘Oh you’re so strong. I don’t know how you do it”. 

She added, “I’m not given a choice. I wish I was. But I’m also raising two kids in this”. 

Hemming added that “sometimes in our lives, we have to put our big girl panties on and get to it, and that’s what I’m doing. But I do have times of sadness every day, grief every day and I’m really feeling it today on his birthday”. 

Following this, Mrs Willis shared a montage video via her Instagram, where she showed herself, and her husband in happier times, to mark his birthday.

“He is pure love. He is so loved. And I’ll be loving him always. Happy Birthday my sweet,” she wrote. “My birthday wish for Bruce is that you continue to keep him in your prayers and highest vibrations because his sensitive Pisces soul will feel it”.

Earlier this month, Emma also called on the papparazzi to play nicely, when they see her husband out in public. More on that from Nova here.
