Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming Willis says she is ‘not good’ as he continues to struggle with dementia

Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming Willis says she is ‘not good’ as he continues to struggle with dementia

Bruce Willis was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia earlier this year, with wife Emma Heming Willis caring for him

Bruce Willis' wife has opened up about the impact his current condition is having on their lives.

Since the Hollywood legend was diagnosed with dementia earlier this year, his partner Emma Heming Willis has been caring for him.

She and Willis' children have been regularly posting to social media, sharing updates with his fans about his condition.

Sadly for the Die Hard star and his family, his condition is 'not treatable' and 'has progressed', his wife confirmed.

In a video posted to her Instagram account, she opened up about the toll his illness as having on her, admitting that she was 'not good', though often it may look like she is.

“I know it looks like I’m out living my best life - I have to make a conscious effort every single day to live the best life that I can," Heming Willis said.

“I do that for myself. I do that for our two children. And Bruce, who would not want me to live any other way. So I don’t want it to be misconstrued."

The former model told her followers that it was hard to stay strong for those around her, especially the couple's two daughters, 11-year-old Mabel Ray, and Evelyn Penn, nine.

She went on: “I have to put my best foot forward for the sake of myself and of my family. When we are not looking after ourselves, we cannot look after anyone that we love.

"So it’s really important."

Heming Willis then urged her followers to try and look for 'something beautiful' in their day.

She said: “I know your day is stressful, and I know that your day is hard, but I just want you to break it up for a minute, and just look for something beautiful."

This comes weeks after Willis' daughter, Tallulah, shared a heartbreaking essay with Vogue in which she admitted she'd known something was wrong with her dad ‘for some time’.

“My family announced in early 2022 that Bruce Willis was suffering from aphasia, a brain-mediated inability to speak or to understand speech, and we learned earlier this year that that symptom was a feature of frontotemporal dementia, a progressive neurological disorder that chips away at his cognition and behavior day by day,” she said.

“But I’ve known that something was wrong for a long time.

“It started out with a kind of vague unresponsiveness, which the family chalked up to Hollywood hearing loss: 'Speak up!' Die Hard messed with Dad’s ears."

When this unresponsiveness ‘broadened’, Tallulah said she ‘sometimes took it personally’.

“He had had two babies with my stepmother, Emma Heming Willis, and I thought he’d lost interest in me,” she wrote.

“Though this couldn’t have been further from the truth, my adolescent brain tortured itself with some faulty math: I’m not beautiful enough for my mother, I’m not interesting enough for my father.”

Tallulah admitted that she knows ‘trials are looming’, describing it as 'the beginning of grief’.
