Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Heming Willis celebrated their eldest daughter’s birthday with a trip down memory lane.
Mabel Willis turned 11 on Sunday and her proud mom marked the occasion by sharing a montage of family photos and videos taken over the years, set to The Cure’s song “Pictures Of You.”
“Happy 11th Birthday Mabel Ray!” Heming Willis wrote in the caption.
“Your energy is contagious,” she continued, praising her little girl for how she “can light up an entire room with your smile and warmth.”
“The way you love and care for your family and friends is beautiful to see. Keep shining my love and never forget to #liveitup,” Heming Willis added.
Heming Willis and Willis got married in 2009. Along with Mabel, the couple also have an 8-year-old daughter, Evelyn. Willis also has daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah with his ex-wife, Demi Moore.
Willis is clearly a caring father. A photo from the Heming Willis montage shows the “Die Hard” star holding baby Mabel while planting a kiss on her forehead, while a more recent image shows a beaming Willis hanging out in nature with his preteen.
Heming Willis wrote a similarly heartfelt tribute last month when her husband celebrated his 68th birthday. Sharing a video montage on Instagram, she called the actor “pure love.”
In February, Willis’ family announced that his speech disorder, aphasia, had progressed into a form of dementia called frontotemporal dementia, or FTD.
“Today there is no treatment for the disease, a reality that we hope can change in the coming years,” they said in an update shared online. “As Bruce’s condition progresses, we hope that all media attention can be focused on shining a light on this disease that requires much more awareness and research.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, FTD refers to “a group of disorders caused by the progressive loss of nerve cells in the brain’s frontal lobes (the areas behind the forehead) or its temporal lobes.” These areas of the brain are generally associated with personality, behavior and language.
