Demi Moore shares important advice for children to live by with dad Bruce Willis' dementia diagnosis

Demi Moore shares important advice for children to live by with dad Bruce Willis' dementia diagnosis

The Die Hard star's former wife and mother of his three eldest daughters shared the words of comfort which she offers her daughters

Actor Demi Moore has discussed how she is helping her children deal with Bruce Willis' dementia diagnosis.

The mother-of-three has been a constant figure in the Die Hard star's life since they got hitched in 1987 and the pair have remained on great terms despite their divorce in 2000.

Bruce is now happily married to model Emma Heming Willis, 45, who he shares daughters Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, nine, with.

But he still has plenty of room in his life for his ex-wife Demi and of course their three children, Rumer, 35, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 29.

His beloved daughters have been right by his side throughout his health struggle and have shared a lot of updates with fans in the hopes of 'spreading awareness' about his complex condition.

Bruce was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia in February last year, following his aphasia diagnosis in 2022 which forced him to retire from acting.

It has obviously been very tough on his tight-knit family, with his wife Emma previously admitting she has 'struggled with guilt' and daughter Tallulah explaining how she has had to become an 'archeologist to her dad's world'.

But they're all weathering the storm together - and G.I. Jane star Demi knows exactly how to help her kids see the silver lining in the sad situation.

The 61-year-old appeared on Good Morning America on Wednesday (31 January) to promote her new series Feud: Capote vs. The Swan, as well as giving her supporters an insight into her former husband's current condition.

Discussing Bruce's health, she said: "I think, given the circumstances, he's doing very well."

She also revealed what words of comfort she offers her daughters as they navigate their dad's dementia diagnosis.

Demi continued: "What I'll share is what I say to my children - it's important to just meet them where they're at and not hold on to what isn't, but what is. Because there is great beauty and sweetness and loving and joy out of that."

Who's chopping onions in here?!

The Ghost actor also encouraged other families who are dealing with a dementia patient to 'let go' and just be 'present' during a chat with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM's Radio Andy.

She said: "When you let go of who they’ve been or who you think, or even who you would like them to be, you can then really stay in the present and take in the joy and the love that is present and there for all that they are –– not all that they’re not."
