Emma Heming Willis, the wife of Bruce Willis, celebrated the birthday of their oldest daughter with a journey down memory lane.
Mabel Willis turned eleven on Sunday, and her mother celebrated the occasion by posting a slideshow of family photos and videos taken over the years, set to The Cure’s “Pictures of You.”
Happy Eleventh Birthday, Mabel Ray! Heming Willis authored the photo’s caption.

Emma Heming Willis discusses discovering community as a caregiver: This voyage can feel quite gloomy.
“Your energy is contagious,” she continued, complimenting her daughter for her ability to “brighten an entire room with your smile and warmth.”
“It’s magnificent to see how you adore and care for your family and acquaintances. Heming Willis added, “Keep shining my love, and always remember to #liveitup.”
In 2009, Heming Willis and Willis were married. In addition to Mabel, the couple has an eight-year-old daughter named Evelyn. In addition to Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah, Willis has three daughters with his ex-wife, Demi Moore.
Willis is obviously a caring father. A photo in Heming Willis’ collage shows the “Die Hard” actor kissing infant Mabel on the face while cradling her, while a more current picture shows a happy Willis spending time in the great outdoors with his adolescent.
Frontotemporal dementia, or FTD, which Bruce Willis was suffering from as a result of his aphasia speech condition was recently disclosed by the actor’s family.
Last month, on the occasion of her husband’s 68th birthday, Heming Willis penned a similarly poignant ode. She described the actor as “pure love” while posting a video montage on Instagram.
The family of Willis announced in February that his speaking disorder, aphasia, had progressed into frontotemporal dementia, or FTD.
“Currently, there are no treatments for the disease, a situation we hope will change in the coming years,” they wrote in an online update. “As Bruce’s condition worsens, we hope that any media attention will be directed toward shedding light on this disease, which requires significantly more awareness and research.”
According to the Alzheimer’s Association, FTD refers to “a group of disorders caused by progressive nerve cell loss in the frontal lobes (areas behind the forehead) and temporal lobes of the brain.” These regions of the brain are commonly linked to demeanor, behavior, and language.
