Emma Heming admits she’s ‘not good’ amid Bruce Willis’ dementia

Emma Heming, the wife of Bruce Willis, has opened up about her struggles amid her husband’s ongoing battle with dementia. In a candid video shared on her Instagram, Heming asked her followers, particularly those who are also caregivers, to find something beautiful in their challenging and stressful days and send her photos of their discoveries. While it may seem like she is living her best life, Heming emphasized that she has to consciously make an effort every day to live the best life she can for herself, their two children, and Bruce, who wouldn’t want her to live any other way.

Heming admitted that she is not doing well and often finds herself in a state of doom and gloom. However, she recognizes the importance of putting her best foot forward for the sake of herself and her family. Taking care of oneself is crucial in order to properly care for loved ones, Heming explained. She acknowledged that it’s not an easy task but one that she is committed to, keeping positive affirmations at the forefront of her mind.

Bruce Willis was diagnosed with aphasia and frontotemporal dementia (FTD) last year. Heming celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary earlier this year by sharing a video montage of their 2019 vow renewal. Alongside the video, Heming expressed her commitment to keeping those memories safe. In her Instagram Story, Heming shared scenic photos sent by her fans, expressing gratitude for their support and love.

Bruce Willis and Emma Heming got married in March 2009. Willis was previously married to Demi Moore from 1987 to 2000, and they have three daughters together. Willis retired from acting in March 2020 after his family revealed his diagnosis of aphasia. Later, it was clarified that he also has frontotemporal dementia, a degenerative brain condition without a cure.

Emma Heming is admittedly struggling amid her husband Bruce Willis’ ongoing battle with dementia.

The model — who shares daughters Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, 9, with the actor — got candid with her Instagram followers Monday after asking fellow “care partners” to “look for something beautiful” in their otherwise “hard,” “stressful” days and send her photos of their findings.

“I know it looks like I’m out living my best life, [but] I have to make a conscious effort every single day to live the best life that I can. I do that for myself, I do that for our two children and [I do that for] Bruce, who would not want me to live any other way,” the 45-year-old said in a selfie video taken in her car following a hike.

“So I don’t want it to be misconstrued that I’m good, ’cause I’m not. I’m not good,” she cautioned, adding that her thinking can often become “doom and gloom.”

Heming shared that putting her “best foot forward” is a daily task that “does not come to [her] easily,” but it’s one she feels is “really important” for “the sake of [herself] and [her] family.”

“When we are not looking after ourselves, we cannot look after anyone that we love,” she explained, noting that she is “just doing the best that [she] can always.”


In her caption alongside the Reel, the Malta native acknowledged that she doesn’t “have this down to a fine-science” but is committed to trying and keeping positive “affirmation[s]” in the “forefront of [her] mind.”

The “Die Hard” star retired from acting last March after his blended family revealed he has aphasia — a communication disorder that affects one’s ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written.

Nearly one year later, his loved ones announced that they’d received “clarity” via a “cruel” update on his struggles, as doctors specified that he has frontotemporal dementia (FTD) — the degeneration of the frontal or temporal lobes of the brain, for which there is no cure.

Willis was married to his first wife, 60-year-old actress Demi Moore, from November 1987 to October 2000. They are parents to daughters Rumer, 34, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 29.
