“Entering my hot kooky unhinged grandma era,” Demi Moore commented at the time, because why yes, this does mean that Demi and ex Bruce Willis are now grandparents!

“Pure love for this little birdie,” kooky, unhinged grandma Demi commented on Rumer’s birth announcement, as did Bruce’s wife, model and entrepreneur Emma Hemming Willis who wrote “Omg we love her so much.”

One thing is for sure, Louetta is surrounded by lots and lots of love!

Emma Heming Willis Asks Paparazzi to Give Bruce Willis Space Amid Dementia Diagnosis

(March 6, 2023)

Emma Heming Willis is making a public request for the paparazzi to give her husband, legendary actor Bruce Willis, some space.

The Die Hard star – who has now stepped away from Hollywood – is living with frontotemporal dementia following a diagnosis of aphasia last year. In a post on Instagram, Emma appeals to the photographers and videographers who’ve been following Bruce lately, asking them to back off.

“If you are someone that is looking after someone with dementia, you know how difficult and stressful it can be to get someone out into the world and just to navigate them safely, even just to get a cup of coffee. And I’m just seeing headlines, and there’s a video of my husband out, getting some coffee with some friends that did a standout job at protecting him,” she begins before restarting the camera as she becomes visibly emotional.
