Emma Heming Willis shares a family update.
The actor, who was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia earlier this year, has the support of his family, which includes his 9-year-old daughter, Evelyn.
Heming Willis took to Instagram with a video explaining the latest.
“So I have to tell you this story, and I’m going to try to do it without crying,” she said. “Because when Evelyn told me that story, I was an absolute puddle.”
She went on to explain that their daughter researched “fun facts about dementia” and made a list at school for her dad.
Heming Willis continued, “Now that’s not funny, but it’s kind of funny. And she really is her father’s child because these two love some random facts. So I said, ‘Evelyn, we’ll always make sure Dad has a bottle of water in hand. Thank you for telling me. But it’s the most loving and compassionate thing you can do is be curious and learn about your father’s illness.
The couple also share an 11-year-old daughter, Mabel, and Willis is father to daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah Willis, along with ex-wife Demi Moore. He recently became a grandfather for the first time.
