Bruce Willis smiles in new picture with wife Emma after aphasia diagnosis

Hollywood acting legend Bruce Willis had a smile on his face as he enjoyed a nature walk with his wife, Emma Heming Willis, on Wednesday, a week after it was revealed that he is stepping away from acting following his shock aphasia diagnosis.

The Die Hard actor, 67, looked content as he gazed at his wife and then smiled into the camera as they sat on a log surrounded by woodland in a series of candid snaps taken by the couple’s ten year old daughter, Mabel.

Emma posted, 43, the images to her Instagram account with the caption: “Mom & dad in their favorite habitat”, and credited the heartwarming images to their daughter Mabel Ray Willis.

The couple dressed casually for the outdoor adventure, with bruce donning grey jeans, a khaki shirt, a bright orange gilet and walking boots, and Emma in blue jeans, a purple top and a light black jacket.

Emma also posted a number of wholesome videos of the family outing to her Instagram Story, with Rolling Stones’ Honky Tonk Women as the soundtrack.

The first video showed Bruce navigating the uneven ground, and then panned to their daughter Mabel who was sat on the ground putting her boot back on.

It looked like a beautiful day for a walk, with bright blue skies and sunshine. The snaps showed them to be in a pretty woodland area, with rocky ground, a lake and craggy mountains in the background.

The wholesome outing comes after Bruce’s family, including wife Emma, ex-wife Demi More and five daughters Rumer, 33, Scout, 30, Tallulah, 28, Mabel Ray, ten, and Evelyn, seven, released a joint statement via Instagram last week, revealing that the veteran actor would be retiring from acting, following a diagnosis with the neurological disorder, aphasia.

It read: “To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities.

“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.

“This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support.

“We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.

“As Bruce always says, “Live it up” and together we plan to do just that."
