LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Rumer Willis has opened up about motherhood as she prepares to welcome her first baby with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas. The 34-year-old actress exclusively revealed in a recent interview that she wants her baby to be "goofy" much like her parents. She has previously mentioned that she always wanted to be a mother, adding that she is following in her mother Demi Moore's footsteps. 

"I'm so grateful that I'm so close with my family and I get to rely on them for support," Willis told People. "It's fun to be bringing in the first grandchild in our family, especially because we're such a huge group at this point." The 'Hostage' actress is the eldest daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore. The former couple is also parents to Tallulah Willis, 29, and Scout Willis, 31. The 'Die Hard' actor is also father to daughters Evelyn Penn, 8, and Mabel Ray, 11, whom he shares with his present wife Emma Heming. Willis is reportedly excited to bring in the "new tiny person," in the famous blended family as they support Bruce during his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.

While keeping the gender of the baby a secret, Willis instead talked about the qualities that she wants her first child to take up from her parents. "We're so goofy, all of us, and just weird. We're a family of weirdos, and I love that so much. I really hope that that is engendered in this child, just the silliness and goofiness. I think my mom had that. My dad had that," she said. "My sisters... That's my favorite thing. Laughing with my family. I have a crazy laugh and so does my partner, so I'm actually probably the most curious to see what it sounds like."

Willis talked about how excited her family is about her pregnancy as she is "bringing in the first grandchild in our family." She also spoke about if she can feel her baby moving. "Oh, yeah. After 8 pm, as soon as you're laying down in bed, it's like a whole disco going on where it'll just be a party happening. That, out of anything else, is the thing that I will miss the most," she said. 


Boyfriend Thomas 'cooks every meal' and 'brings water'

Willis has described her boyfriend Thomas as an "angel" because of his hugely supportive nature during her pregnancy. The musician reportedly cooks every meal for Willis as well as "brings her water." She added: "He's been so lovely, and he's just so excited to be a father, and we're both just so delighted to meet whoever this little person is. I could not have asked for a better partner, and he's going to be such a great father."
