Inside Bruce Willis' Relationship With Wife Emma Heming

Bruce Willis began dating model and blogger Emma Heming—who's 23 years his junior—in 2008 after meeting through mutual friends. The pair married in March 2009 in a civil ceremony in Beverly Hills following a wedding celebration in Turks and Caicos, where Willis also has a home, People reported. Willis' rep gushed at the time, "They could not be happier." Willis' ex-wife, Demi Moore, and her then-husband, Ashton Kutcher, were among the attendees, as well as Willis and Moore's three daughters, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah.

In 2012, Willis and Heming welcomed their first daughter, Mabel. Their second daughter, Evelyn, was born in 2014. Both Heming and Willis tend to fly under the radar when they aren't working, but Heming does document their family's cute moments on her Instagram. She and Willis are still as smitten as ever and renewed their vows in March 2019 for their 10-year anniversary. Heming says the vow renewal was really a gift to their daughters.

How Bruce Willis and Emma Heming make it work

"It was really for them, to be able to be flower girls, for them to be a part of something that feels kind of monumental," Emma Heming told Us Weekly. "Ten years felt like a big deal and something fun to celebrate." As for what makes her marriage to the Die Hard actor work, Heming gushed, "I think we've always had a lot of respect for each other, which has really helped build a great foundation. He makes me laugh. He's funny and he's smart, and nuts, and always keeps me on my toes, so it's fun."

Heming and Demi Moore, as well as Moore and Bruce Willis' daughters from their own marriage (from 1987 to 2000), get along beautifully as a blended family. Heming said of having Moore at their vow renewal ceremony, "She welcomed me into her family like I welcomed her into ours. I have so much respect for her. I have so much respect for how Bruce and Demi worked through their divorce to be able to put their children first. I learned so much from that and grew so much from watching that. It was important for her to be there. She was at our first wedding. I loved having her there again. I wouldn't do it without her."
