His family starts singing “Happy Birthday” as the camera sweeps around the room. He stands to the left of his wife, Emma Heming Willis, and to the right of his pregnant daughter Rumer, 34. Moore then takes the video while turning the camera on herself for a time to offer a broad perspective of the smash.
Willis then blows out the candles on what seems to be a birthday pie, eliciting euphoric whoops of pleasure and cheering from the audience. Heming Willis kisses him on the cheek before everyone in the audience yells, “Hip, hop, hooray!”
Willis’ family stated in March 2022 that he had been diagnosed with aphasia, which hampers his cognitive ability and has forced him to retire from performing. The family announced last month that he had been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia, a rare kind of dementia that affects the frontal and temporal lobes of the brain.
On March 19, Heming Willis, who has daughters Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, with Willis, released an Instagram video on her husband’s birthday, discussing the difficulty of caring for him, adding that she has heard from individuals who are in awe of her ability to care for him.
She said that she does not have a choice. She wish she was, but she is also raising two kids in this. So, every now and again, they have to pull on their big girl pants and get to it. has sad moments every day. Every day is a day of grief. And she is feeling it so strongly now, his birthday.
The actor has three kids with Moore in addition to his two daughters with Heming Willis. Willis and Moore share Tallulah, 29, and Scout, 31, along with Rumer, who will give birth to his first grandchild. Scout, 31, also uploaded a video of the birthday celebration on her Instagram profile.
Scout also paid tribute to her dad on Instagram, posting a picture of herself as a child on her dad’s shoulders, her head resting on her dad’s head.
She wrote that this isn’t always an easy day, since it’s a day filled of such profound affection, and the loss truly does show them the depth of their caring for someone. Today, she is attempting to be with both. Pain is the price she’ll always pay to understand what it’s like to experience such love.
