The 68-year-old “Die Hard” star was captured smiling and celebrating his 68th birthday over the weekend in an Instagram video post shared by his ex-wife Demi Moore.
Moore wrote in the caption, “Happy birthday, BW!” I’m so glad we got to celebrate you today. I adore you and our entire family. Thank you for your kind words and warm wishes; we all appreciate them.”
Willis’ wife, Emma Heming Willis, also posted an emotional video on social media.
Heming Willis began his Instagram post on Sunday, “Today is my husband’s birthday. As evidenced by my swollen eyes and snotty nose, I began the morning crying. I just think it’s critical that you look at everything.”
“I always get this message or people tell me, ‘Oh, you’re so strong,'” she says. I’m not sure how you do it.’ I don’t have a choice. “I wish I could, but I’m also raising two children,” the 44-year-old explained. “Sometimes in our lives, we need to put on our big girl pants and get to work. And that’s exactly what I’m doing.”
“But I do have sad days, grief days, and I’m really feeling it today on his birthday,” she continued.
Heming Willis shared a reel in honor of her husband’s 68th birthday, revealing that it was “like a knife in [her] heart” to make.
“But I do it for you as much as I do for myself because I know how much you love my husband,” she explained before reminding herself not to cry. “However, it means a lot to me, so thank you.”
The video was captioned, “He is pure love. He is adored. And I’ll always love him. “Happy birthday, my dear.”
“My birthday wish for Bruce is that you keep him in your prayers and highest vibrations because his sensitive Pisces soul will feel it,” wrote Heming Willis. “Thank you for loving and caring for him as well.”
