"He's a fun date," Heming wrote on Monday alongside an Instagram Story repost of an upload from May 2022.

"One of the many reason I fell hard for Bruce was because he never takes anything too seriously. As you can clearly see here at our first (and last 😂) Met Gala, as newlyweds back in 2009," the model captioned the Instagram post last year.

The 2009 Met Gala theme was The Model As Muse: Embodying Fashion, and the mom-of-two absolutely nailed it.

Heming – who shares daughters Evelyn, 11, and Mabel, 9, with Willis — stunned in a shimmering deep V-neck sleeveless gown, as she visibly shared laughs with the Die Hard actor, who wore a classic black suit and bow tie.
