Bruce Willis’s Wife, Emma, Gets Emotional Over Hardship on His Birthday

Bruce Willis recently celebrated his 68th birthday, surrounded by his nearest and dearest.

His family shared heartwarming clips and photos of the Die Hard actor in celebration, and even gave fans an inside look into the day, sharing a video of him blowing his candles out after they all sang happy birthday.

It’s safe to say that the day looked full of love and smiles. However, Bruce’s wife Emma Heming Willis took to social media to share her thoughts on the day, and opened up about the realities of caring for someone with FTD.

She shared an emotional video to her Instagram, as she admitted to having ‘times of sadness’ on her husband’s 68th birthday.

Heming Willis talked about Willis’ dementia diagnosis, and thank fans for their support and kind messages.

“So today is my husband’s birthday. I have started the morning by crying as you can see by my swollen eyes and snotty nose,” Emma said in the video.

“I just think it’s important that you see all sides of this.”

“I always get this message where people always tell me, ‘Oh you’re so strong. I don’t know how you do it.’ I’m not given a choice. I wish I was but I’m also raising two kids in this.”

“Sometimes in our lives, we have to put our big girl panties on and get to it. And that’s what I’m doing.”

“But I do have times of sadness, every day, grief every day, and I’m really feeling it today on his birthday.”

She went on: “As much as I do it for myself I do it for you because I know how much you love my husband… Don’t cry, Emma.”

“But it means so much to me so thank you.”

This comes after the family shared the devastating news that Willis had been diagnosed with a condition called Frontotemporal dementia, also known as FTD.

They shared a statement that said: “Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).”

FTD, refers to a collection of disorders that primarily affect the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain. The diseases that fall under this umbrella are neurodegenerative, meaning they get worse over time.
