Emma Heming couldn’t help but gush over her husband Bruce Willis in a sweet throwback post Wednesday night.
Heming, who has been married to the “Die Hard” actor since 2009, said she is “so in love” with Willis after recently revealing that his battle with aphasia has developed into Frontotemporal Dementia.
Posting a video on her Instagram Story, the actor could be heard saying he’s “crazy” about his wife’s skincare brand, Cocobaba.
“What’s this new memory thingy on IG!? OMG my biggest fan. I’m in love with him,” Heming wrote to her 612,000 followers.
On Monday, Heming revealed she was working with dementia specialist Teepa Snow as Willis continues his uphill battle.
Tagging the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration in the post, the mom of two praised the help she’s received from the organization.
“I’m grateful I had the opportunity to work with @teepasnows_pac who has helped me add to my dementia care toolbox,” the 44-year-old wrote.
“She’s a loving, compassionate and skilled leader in this space who navigates herself with pure empathy. She’s a gift. Head to the link in my bio as her website has a wealth of caregiving information you might find useful too 💌 #dementiaawareness #ftdawarness #EndFTD #EveryFTDStoryCounts.”
Last month, Willis’ family revealed in a lengthy statement that his condition has worsened.
“While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis,” the family said on the Association for Frontotemporal Degeneration website.
“FTD is a cruel disease that many of us have never heard of and can strike anyone. For people under 60, FTD is the most common form of dementia, and because getting the diagnosis can take years, FTD is likely much more prevalent than we know,” they wrote in part.
The statement — which was signed by Willis’ ex-wife, Demi Moore, his current wife, Emma Heming, and all five of his daughters — also said that if the “Whole Nine Yards” star “could” respond to his situation, he would want to help spread awareness and bring “global attention and connectedness” to others suffering from the “debilitating disease.”
Willis’ initial aphasia diagnosis indicated that he would struggle to speak, write and understand language, both verbal and written, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Months after that diagnosis, Heming shared that she was grappling with “paralyzing” grief.
“I’m learning how to live along side [sic] it,” she wrote on social media.
The actress went on to share wisdom from Willis’ 31-year-old daughter Scout, writing, “Grief is the deepest and purest form of love. I hope you find some comfort in that too.”
