Bruce Willis has posed for a rare family photo with his daughter and baby granddaughter following a sad update about his health.

Legendary Hollywood actor Willis, 68, has achieved worldwide fame for his unforgettable performances in blockbuster films such as Die Hard and Pulp Fiction.

In a heart-wrenching announcement last year, fans of the beloved star were saddened to learn that Willis would be retiring from the film industry due to his diagnosis of aphasia.

Aphasia is a degenerative brain condition that affects language and communication.

Unfortunately, there is further distressing news regarding Willis’ health.

On Father’s Day, his daughter Rumer Willis, 34, shared a touching photograph of her father, Willis, with her own daughter, Louetta Isley.

She expressed that this memory would be cherished for a lifetime.

The image captures a heartwarming moment as Willis, for the first time, cradles his eight-week-old granddaughter, Louetta.

Rumer considered herself fortunate to have such a loving father, acknowledging him as the best ‘Girl Dad’ in the game.

Compounding his aphasia diagnosis in 2022, Willis also received a diagnosis of frontotemporal dementia (FTD).

The family announced his condition and stated that he would be stepping away from acting.

The recent confirmation of frontotemporal dementia provides clarity on Willis’ situation, although it brings with it challenges beyond communication difficulties.

She wrote: “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).

“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.”
