Bruce Willis’ Family Celebrates Actor’s Birthday: ‘Keep Him In Your Prayers’ 

By Movieguide® Contributor

Bruce Willis’ family recently celebrated the actor’s birthday, and his family members asked for prayers as he continues to fight frontotemporal dementia.

Demi Moore wished her ex-husband a happy birthday in a sweet Instagram post. 

The video shows Willis’ family — including current wife Emma Heming Willis and his daughters — singing “Happy Birthday” to the actor before he blows the candles out on a birthday pie. 


“Happy birthday, BW!” she captioned the video. “So glad we could celebrate you today. Love you and love our family. Thank you to everyone for the love and warm wishes — we all feel them.”

Emma also posted a video in honor of Willis’ birthday, made up of photos and videos of the family. 

“My birthday wish for Bruce is that you continue to keep him in your prayers,” she captioned her post. “Thank you so much for loving and caring for him, too.”


Willis and his family recently shared that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, which can affect motor skills and cause emotional problems. Movieguide® previously reported:

Bruce Willis’ family updated his fans on his health, sharing that his condition “has progressed” from aphasia, and the actor has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. 

“Our family wanted to start by expressing our deepest gratitude for the incredible outpouring of love, support and wonderful stories we have all received since sharing Bruce’s original diagnosis,” Willis’ ex-wife, actress Demi Moore, wrote on Instagram. “In the spirit of that, we wanted to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.”

She continued, “Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD). Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”
