Bruce Willis' wife, Emma Heming Willis, will always stand by his side.

In 2009, Willis, 68, got married to model Emma Heming Willis, 44m who took on the actor's last name. This marked the actor's second marriage. Willis and Demi Moore were married from 1987 to 2000 and share three daughters.

Heming Willis preciously worked in the fashion industry. In her 20s, she was a model. Now, as a mom to daughters Mabel and Evelyn, Heming Willis has turned her focus to her kids, and more recently, her husband, who is grappling with a frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.

On their 14th wedding anniversary, Heming Willis revealed how "hard" it was to be his caretaker after she got a bouquet of flowers from one of her friends on their special day.

"It got me thinking about how hard these types of 'special occasions' can be on caregivers," she wrote on Instagram. "When usually our person would acknowledge the event, now their changing brains just can’t. And that is what it is. So my point is this. If you know someone that is looking after someone else, don’t ask what you can do, just do. This random act of kindness will honestly stay with me for a long time."
