Bruce Willis looks in good spirits as he shares a warm hug with daughter Tallulah amid aphasia struggle
The 67-year-old star’s third daughter, whom he shares with ex-wife Demi Moore, took to Instagram on Thursday, January 12 to share the joyful picture with the caption, '"High drama club ~~ life skills ~~ fingers crossed I eat a veggie this week LMAO." The snap captured the father and daughter duo having a great time together as they pulled off dramatic faces for the camera while larking around in comfy attires.
The ‘Die Hard’ star wore a plain white T-shirt in the snap, paired with grey joggers and navy trainers. Tallulah also matched her loving father’s vibe and adorned a pretty black shirt with a red floral pattern, which she complimented with wide-legged grey trousers. 'The Whole Ten Yards' star also posed for cute selfies on her own, with one seeing her don dark sunglasses as she pouted for the camera. Willis and Moore welcomed their youngest child Tallulah Belle Willis on February 3, 1994, in LA, like her older sisters.
This snap came after Bruce enjoyed family love as he posed for a sweet photo with his five children along with his ex-wife Demi Moore and current wife Emma Heming. "We are FAMILY!! Getting into the holiday spirit!" Moore captioned the group shot, which shows Willis posing with her and their three daughters — Tallulah, 28, Scout, 31, and Rumer, 34 — as well as wife Emma Heming Willis and their two girls, 8-year-old Evelyn Penn and Mabel Ray, 10. That was the star's first photo since he announced his retirement in the wake of the diagnosis.
Last month, a source close to the star told Radar Online that his family is trying to spend every moment they can together. "They know he won't be around forever," the unnamed source said. "So they're cherishing every single moment." The source added Moore "has been in constant contact with Bruce and Emma. She takes every opportunity she can to spend time with him." "If she's not there by his side, she's calling on the phone just so Bruce can hear her voice," the source revealed.
Earlier this year, Bruce’s family issued a joint statement via Instagram announcing his diagnosis of aphasia, a rare brain condition that affects the sufferer's ability to speak and understand language. "The veteran actor has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” the statement read.
The family also announced the legend's retirement. “As a result of this and with much consideration, Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. This is a challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion, and support," they added.
