Bruce Willis’ daughters Scout and Tallulah pay tribute to their ‘inspirational’ stepmother Emma Heming as she gives a heartbreaking update on actor’s dementia

Bruce Willis’ daughters’ Scout and Tallulah showed their support of their father’s wife Emma Heming Willis after she gave a heartbreaking interview on the actor’s health. 

Hollywood icon Bruce, 68, has Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) – an uncommon form of dementia which causes a deterioration in behavior, personality and language.

In the interview, Emma fought back tears while discussing coping with the ‘grief and the sadness’ of watching her husband’s health decline.

Taking to Instagram to reshare a behind-the-scenes clip of Emma’s interview, Scout, 32, who is Bruce’s eldest child with Demi Moore, wrote: ‘I truly could not be more proud of @emmahemingwillis for being willing to step out into the public eye, (even though it’s terrifying!!!) to share our family’s story in service of spreading awareness about FTD.

‘Emma you are such a champion for this cause and you inspire me EVERY SINGLE F*****G DAY with your bravery and deep loving. Your courage is moving mountains #ftd #ftdawareness.’

The youngest of Bruce and Demi’s children Tallulah, 29, posted on her Instagram stories her older sister’s words with the caption: ‘So proud of my family @emmahemingwillis’.

Bruce married Emma in 2009 and they have two children Mabel Ray Willis, 11, and Evelyn Penn Willis, 9.

The actor has remained good friends with his ex-wife Demi, to whom he was married from 1987 to 2000.

They have three daughters, Scout, Tallulah and Rumer, 35.

In the interview on Monday, Emma said it was a ‘beautiful thing amongst the sadness’ to watch their two young daughters caring for their father.

‘What I’m learning is that dementia is hard,’ she told the Today show. ‘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.

‘And when they say that this is a family disease, it really is.’

When asked how she went about explaining his illness to their children, she said: ‘I think it’s always been… we’re a very honest and open household.
