Bruce Willis’ family is keeping his treasured memories “safe and alive.”
In the wake of the Die Hard actor’s heartbreaking frontotemporal dementia diagnosis, his loved ones are doing the best they can to preserve all their most sacred and special moments together. His wife, Emma Heming, with whom he shares daughters Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, took to Instagram Tuesday to celebrate their anniversary by sharing a video montage throwback of their wedding vow renewal from 2019. The mother of two wrote alongside the tender family video:
“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. 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”
The footage, which was captured by Bruce’s ex-wife Demi Moore, who shares daughters Rumer, 34, Scout, 31, and Tallulah, 29, with the Pulp Fiction actor, showed Emma walking barefoot alongside her two young daughters, who served as flower girls, to meet Bruce at the altar. Rumer and Scout served as musical performers, gently strumming a guitar while serenading the lovebirds as Bruce’s longtime friend Stephen Eads officiated.
The heartfelt video concluded with the couple showing their love for one another in a sweet kiss, before the whole family gathered together for a group photo. See the full post (below):
Seriously one of the most precious things we’ve seen in a while — we so admire the family dynamic Bruce, Emma, Demi, and all their children share.
The 44-year-old’s post came shortly after an earlier one the same day, in which she shared a photo of a bouquet of flowers for the couple’s now 14th wedding anniversary. Explaining the significance behind them, she wrote:
“Today marks 14 years of marriage to the greatest love of my life. I woke with my heart full but what my mind kept going back to was another persons act of kindness yesterday I wanted to share as it inspired the heck out of me. In passing at a school event for our children, I mentioned to my friend that our anniversary was tomorrow. 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 candidly continued:
“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.”
We continue to send lots of love and strength to the beautiful, blended Willis family as they continue to care for Bruce.
