Bruce Willis' Family Has 'The Biggest Support System' After FTD Diagnosis, Insider Reveals: They're 'Closer Than Ever'
After Bruce Willis’ family shared the actor's recent FTD diagnosis, an insider revealed his brood is “closer than ever."
The Die Hard star’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, is "grateful" for the “biggest support system” amid the tragic news.
Bruce, 67, and Emma, 44, share two girls: Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8. Additionally, Bruce has three daughters — Rumor Willis, 34, Scout Willis, 31, and Tallulah Willis, 29 — with former wife Demi Moore.
“She is trying to make as many positive memories for them as she can. She wants them to remember Bruce as an amazing, fun dad. She wants them to have the best memories of him," the source spilled about Emma.
On February 16, the mother-of-two posted a photo of the Pulp Fiction actor on Instagram announcing that he was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. The family released an official statement along with the Instagram post.
"Bruce always believed in using his voice in the world to help others, and to raise awareness about important issues both publicly and privately. We know in our hearts that – if he could today — he would want to respond by bringing global attention and a connectedness with those who are also dealing with this debilitating disease and how it impacts so many individuals and their families," the message said.
