Emma went on to say that since her husband’s diagnosis, she is often told that she is “strong”:
“I have no choice. I wish I had, but I’m also raising two kids in the middle of all of this. Sometimes we just have to pick ourselves up and keep going. And that’s what I do. But I also have moments when I’m sad, every day, sadness every day, and I really feel it today, on his birthday.”
Later that day, Emma posted another post with video clips of Bruce Willis and his family.
“He is pure love. He is so loved. And I will always love him,” she captioned the touching post.
