Recently, the world of cinema had a shock with the announcement of the retirement of Bruce Willis as an actor. The star’s family has announced that he suffers from aphasia. This is a disease that directly impacts his cognitive abilities. An announcement that also shocked and worried his fans. Fortunately, this Wednesday, March 6, sublime shots of the actor and his wife were shared on the networks. These are photos taken by her granddaughter, Mabel Ray.
According to the couple’s latest photo on Instagram, Bruce Willis and Emma Heming Willis have been spending time off the grid. Last month, the couple celebrated their 13th anniversary. In the snaps that were posted and taken by Mabel Ray Willis, the smiling couple are seen snuggling up to each other. “Mom and dad in their favorite habitat #offthegrid,” Emma captioned the photo shared on social media. We see her in particular on a merry-go-round responding with a big smile to the smile of the 67-year-old Die Hard actor. Emma Heming, 43, was quick to thank Mabel for taking these photos.

This blissful moment together comes after the family announced the iconic actor’s retirement from the stage. The thing is, Bruce Willis has aphasia. This is a disease that robs you of the ability to communicate, according to The Mayo Clinic. “It can affect your ability to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written,” the group adds. Mayo Clinic also says that this disease can appear suddenly or gradually.
After the family announcement, Emma Heming sent a message to her fans. She particularly thanked them for their support and for joining her. “Your love, support, compassion, prayers really help,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “I appreciate it. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” the model concluded.
