Demi Moore and Bruce Willis broke up a while back, but they’ve managed to maintain a strong connection. They serve as an example of how to remain friends with your exes, showing respect and moving forward with your own lives. Despite having new partners and children, they have succeeded in creating a blended family.
This year’s Father’s Day held a special significance for Bruce Willis, as he was diagnosed with dementia earlier in the year. His loved ones took this occasion to express their appreciation for him and the other fathers in their family.
Rumer Willis shared the first image of her dad, Bruce, gushing about being a grandfather to Louetta Isley Thomas Willis, calling the carousel of images, “Fathers to the old and new.”
She confessed that seeing him hold her daughter on such a special day is something she’ll forever cherish. She added, “His love for her is so pure and beautiful. Papa, I’m so lucky to have you and so is Lou. Thank you for being the silliest, most loving, coolest Daddio a girl could ask for.” Rumer then went on to thank her partner, Derek Richard Thomas, as he was celebrating his first-ever Father’s Day.
Scout LaRue Willis, Bruce, and Demi’s second-born daughter revealed that on this Father’s Day, she’s thinking of everyone for whom today is challenging. As the past year has been nothing but a rollercoaster of emotion for her and the rest of her family, she said that the greatest challenges of our lives can teach us patience, compassion, and presence. "I feel so lucky to know the kind of tenderness that this my dad shares, the deep admiration, respect, and reverence he has for his family. I feel so lucky that this incredible, vibrant man is my father.
