Demi Moore shared a heartfelt message dedicated to Bruce Willis on his 68th birthday. The celebration was the first since the Die Hard star was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. In a video posted to Instagram, the actor appears in good spirits as he is surrounded by his wife Emma, daughters, and other loved ones singing happy birthday.

“Happy Birthday, [Bruce Willis]. So glad we could celebrate you today,” Moore wrote in the caption. “Love you and love our family. Thank you to everyone for the love and warm wishes. We all feel them.” Messages of support flooded the comments as fans admired his strength. Others wished them “healthy and happy days” and said the video “melted their hearts.”

After joining in with the singing, Bruce Willis blew out candles on his birthday pie. He was married to Demi Moore from 1987 to 2000. They have three grown daughters. In 2009, the actor married Emma Heming, who posted a heartfelt message on her husband’s birthday. “Today is one of those days of feeling the grief and sadness,” she wrote.

“But the silver lining is that I’m so lucky to feel [the] love that is directed to my husband (Bruce Willis) and our family,” Heming added that she sees all the messages of support and that each one helps. “Your connection helps me, and I hope it helps you to know that I see you and I deeply understand your journey as well,” she continued.

Bruce Willis retired from acting in 2022 due to an aphasia diagnosis. The degenerative brain disease is known to affect speech and general communication. At the time, his family shared a statement with Variety, thanking everyone for their support. It explained his severe problems as the reason for him stepping away from Hollywood.

Last month, Bruce Willis’ condition became much worse as his family announced that his speaking disorder progressed into frontotemporal dementia. The family shared a statement again, confirming that there are no treatments for the disease. However, they hope medical advances will be made in the coming years.

“As Bruce’s condition advances, we hope that any media attention can be focused on shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research,” the family said via CNN Entertainment. Frontotemporal dementia “refers to a group of disorders caused by progressive nerve cell loss in the brain’s frontal lobes,” according to the Alzheimer’s Association.

These areas of the brain are associated with personality, behavior, and language. Meanwhile, Bruce and Emma Willis share two daughters, Mabel and Evelyn. Additionally, the 10 Minutes Gone? actor will be a grandfather as Rumer Willis is expecting her first child with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas.

Bruce Willis’ most recent acting credit is the direct-to-video film Detective Knight: Independence. Directed by Edward Drake from a story he co-wrote with Corey Large, it serves as the final installment of the Detective Knight trilogy. Released in January 2023, the movie also stars Jack Kilmer, Lochlyn Munro, Jimmy Jean-Louis, Willow Shields, Dina Meyer, and Timothy V. Murphy.

Bruce Willis also has an action movie called Assassin slated for release on March 31st. Directed by Jesse Atlas from a script by Aaron Wolfe, the story is based on the short film Let Them Die Like Lovers. The project is Willis’s final film role.
