Bruce Willis is surrounded by so much love as he continues to deal with aphasia. On Monday night, the actor’s beloved wife, Emma Heming Willis, took to social media to shower praises on her husband.
Emma spared no words as she even revealed what made her fall for the “Die Hard” star.
Emma Heming Willis Says Bruce Willis Doesn’t Allow Fear Stop Him
Emma shocked fans with a hilarious throwback video of Bruce belting out tunes with the music band The Temptations.
The “RED” star proved to be a man of many talents as she was on stage with the famous singing group as they performed the hit tune “Under the Boardwalk” by the Drifters.
Bruce gave a soulful performance with a smile on his face as he synchronized with The Temptations. Although the clip was from years back, it particularly touched Emma and taught her an invaluable lesson.
“My motto is don’t let the fear stop you. Why? Because fear constantly stops me 😂🙈 Which is another reason I fell for my husband, fear has never stopped him,” the doting wife began.
The British-American model continued, “I mean what kind of next level confidence does it take to sing lead with The Temptations? You can say what you want (and boy have they), but this guy has always been led by his passion and has never let naysayers stop him from, well, anything.”
Emma concluded her lengthy message, saying she has “so much respect, love, and admiration” for Bruce, before urging fans to enjoy the deeply thrilling video.
Proud daughter Rumer Willis gushed about her dad in the comments section, writing, “Papa!!!” Many fans camped underneath the post, sending love to the “Pulp Fiction” star.
One fan wrote, “He will always be one of my favorite humans of all time. An unmatched energy and spirit, praying for you all that peace and happiness continue to fill your lives even during the toughest times.”

Another comment read, “He is great! I have been a fan since I was a kid when he was in Moonlighting. He is lucky to have you as such wonderful support.”
Emma reposted the clip on her Instagram Story with the caption, “He’s my North Star.” She then followed it up with a loved-up photo of her planting a sweet kiss on Bruce’s cheeks as they donned matching sunglasses and posed in a bushy environment.
“I love him so much it hurts,” she gushed in the caption.
The ‘Perfect Stranger’ Champions Self-Care For Mothers
Last month, Emma got candid about the struggles of being a mother and wife and how it can be sometimes overbearing. The CocoBaba founder revealed that she struggles with making time for herself amid being there for her family.
“I put my family’s needs above my own, which I found does not make me any kind of hero. That amount of care for everyone else within my household had taken a toll on my mental health and overall health, and it served no one in my family,” she confessed.
Emma shared a life-changing message she heard about how over-caring for someone leads to under-caring for yourself. “That stopped me in my tracks and really resonated with me,” she admitted.
Emma revealed that ever since she made sure that some basic baseline needs, such as exercise, are met before she caters to her family.
She further explained, “It’s a time I can disconnect and can do something that I know makes me feel good overall. I think it’s important to find that one thing that makes you feel good and build from there.”
