Demi Moore is sending love to the father of her children/ex-husband, Bruce Willis, on his 69th birthday. 

On March 19, the Ghost star shared a celebratory slideshow filled with current and throwback photos of the actor, who has been diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia. The first photo shows Moore, 61, sharing a tender moment with the Die Hard alum while he sits upright in a gray armchair. 

Meanwhile, Willis appears to be wearing a gray long-sleeve shirt and a navy blue beanie hat. In the caption, Moore wrote, “Happy birthday, BW! We love you and are so grateful for you [heart emoji].”

The slideshow also includes an extremely rare snap of Willis happily playing with his granddaughter, Louetta Isley Thomas Willis. As an added bonus, the Feud: Capote Vs. The Swans actress treated her followers to a throwback photo of Willis posing with his three daughters—Rumer, Scout and Tallulah—who are wearing pink and white dresses.

Willis’s family shared his FTD diagnosis with the world in February 2023. In a post shared to his wife Emma Heming Willis’s Instagram, she wrote in the caption, “Since we announced Bruce’s diagnosis of aphasia in spring 2022, Bruce’s condition has progressed and we now have a more specific diagnosis: frontotemporal dementia (known as FTD).”

The message continued, “Unfortunately, challenges with communication are just one symptom of the disease Bruce faces. While this is painful, it is a relief to finally have a clear diagnosis.”

We hope you enjoyed your special day, Bruce.
