On Father’s Day, Rumer Willis shared heartwarming moments with her father, Bruce Willis. The 34-year-old actress took to Instagram to post some precious photos of her 68-year-old father holding her eight-week-old daughter, Louetta.
These appear to be the first publicly shared photos of the two together. Despite his ongoing battle with frontotemporal dementia and recent departure from acting, Bruce lovingly cradled his granddaughter while being celebrated by his family on this special occasion.
Following his daughter Tallulah Willis’ recent revelation about his mental decline, Bruce Willis showcased a touching moment of love.
In the photos shared by Rumer Willis, the Armageddon star can be seen dressed in a casual black, white, and gray plaid button-up shirt, paired with a black baseball cap and dark pants.
Bruce Willis shared a heartfelt moment with his granddaughter Louetta as they enjoyed the scenic surroundings by the swimming pool. Louetta, dressed in a charming blue-and-orange floral-print onesie, was cradled by her doting grandfather while Rumer Willis made an appearance, holding Louetta as her father affectionately rested his chin on her head. In the photos, each of them looked in different directions, capturing the love and joy shared among the family members.
Rumer looked radiant in a powder blue polka-dotted skirt, paired with a white top and a stylish pale yellow cardigan, showcasing her post-baby body. In her caption, she expressed her gratitude for witnessing the pure and beautiful love her father displayed for her daughter. Rumer praised her father, thanking him for being a loving and silly “Daddio” and celebrating him as the best Girl Dad.
Rumer also took the opportunity to acknowledge her partner, Derek Thomas, on his first Father’s Day. She shared photos of Derek bonding with Louetta, one where he lay shirtless on a bed with their daughter and an open book, and another with his hair tied up in a messy bun and a comically white face. Rumer expressed her appreciation for Derek, highlighting his role in creating a beautiful garden for Louetta and filling their home with music. She thanked him for his late-night diaper changes, silly faces, and for being a goofy and weird presence that would encourage their daughter to be herself.
In her Instagram Stories, Rumer playfully captured Derek’s “natural habitat” as he washed dishes in the kitchen, with Louetta joining in on the chores secured in a carrier on his chest.
Scout, Bruce Willis’ daughter with ex-wife Demi Moore, also took the opportunity to wish her father a happy Father’s Day. She shared a heartwarming photo of Bruce kissing her forehead, capturing a tender moment from the family gathering. In her caption, Scout expressed her gratitude for the love and tenderness that her father shares, along with the deep admiration, respect, and reverence he holds for his family. She acknowledged her luck in having such an incredible and vibrant man as her father.
Scout also extended her love and support to those who may find Father’s Day challenging, emphasizing the lessons of patience, compassion, and presence that we learn through the greatest challenges in life. She shared another image on Instagram, showing Bruce deep in concentration, holding Scout’s hand affectionately and resting his forehead against it while she sang to him.
Bruce received numerous Father’s Day tributes, including one from his ex-wife Demi Moore. She posted a charming black-and-white throwback photo of Bruce with their three oldest daughters, expressing her eternal gratitude to him for giving her these beautiful girls. Demi highlighted their shared love for being a “girldad” and wished Bruce a happy Father’s Day.
Bruce’s current wife, Emma Heming Willis, also took to social media to share her own heartfelt message. She posted an adorable picture of Bruce with their oldest daughter, Mabel, who is 11 years old. While their younger daughter, Evelyn, was not pictured, Emma’s message was filled with love and appreciation for Bruce’s role as a father.
In her caption, the former model expressed her deep appreciation and respect for Bruce, highlighting the valuable lessons he imparts to their children. She mentioned that although their parenting approach may not follow traditional norms, the qualities he instills in their kids will have a lasting impact across generations. Emma praised Bruce for his unconditional love, kindness, strength, compassion, patience, generosity, and resilience.
Concluding her message, Emma wished Bruce a happy Father’s Day and described him as the greatest dad she knows, emphasizing that he will forever be a cherished gift within their family.
