Bruce Willis’ blended family recently gave him a heartfelt Father’s Day celebration. They shared both recent and archival photos. Additionally, Rumer Willis and Emma Heming recently commented on the actor’s health.

The heartfelt post showcased a series of 10 sweet photos, including vintage ones. It was accompanied by the caption, ’’Happy Father’s Day to our favorite girl dad. We love you, BW!’’

Two of the throwback pics showed the 69-year-old retied actor cradling his eldest child, 35-year-old Rumer, when she was a baby.

Other vintage snapshots showed Bruce holding his daughters when they were young, as well as tender moments with his younger children — Mabel Ray, 12, and Evelyn Penn, 10 — from his marriage to Emma. The post also included a touching recent photo of Scout gently touching her father’s cheek.

Fans online felt deeply moved by the touching post, and they sent their best wishes to the actor and his lovely family. One fan shared, ’’It’s a terrible illness but being surrounded by such a kind and caring family is the best anyone could hope for under the circumstances.’’ Another wrote, ’’This shakes my heart, lovely Bruce, send a lot of hugs.’’ A third simply exclaimed, ’’What a man!!’’

The father of five announced his retirement from acting in 2022 due to his battle with aphasia, a brain disorder. In February 2023, his family disclosed that Bruce had also been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, an irreversible condition that affects speech and motor functions.

Recently, those close to the actor shared updated information about his health.“He’s great. Yeah, yeah, doing OK. Thank you so much for asking,” Rumer Willis said. The actor’s wife, Emma Heming, provided a more extensive and concerning update. “Dementia is hard,” she said. “It’s hard on the person diagnosed, it’s also hard on the family. And that is no different for Bruce, or myself, or our girls. When they say this is a family disease, it really is.”

She also added, “Stop scaring people to think that once they get a diagnosis of some kind of neurocognitive disease that that’s it, it’s over. No, it is the complete opposite of that, OK? 100% there is grief and sadness, there is all of that. But you start a new chapter ... filled with love ... connection ... joy ... happiness. That’s where we are.”

Here are more photos of the wonderful family that has come together around the actor, supporting him during this difficult time.
