Emma Hemming, 44, wife of Bruce Willis, modeled a one-piece swimsuit on social media on Wednesday.
But it wasn’t just any bathing suit. It was an Andie Swim swimsuit co-designed by Bruce’s ex-wife Demi Moore, 59. The Ghost superstar modeled a very similar version of this suit for Andie Swim’s summer campaign.
Emma and Demi have become close friends as they help Bruce cope with his health problems – he suffers from aphasia, a degenerative brain disease – over the last few years.
Thank you Demi! Bruce Willis’ wife Emma Hemming modeled a one-piece swimsuit on social media on Wednesday. But it wasn’t just any bathing suit. It was an Andie swimsuit co-designed by Bruce’s ex-wife Demi Moore

Heming is said to be doing everything he can to ensure the Die Hard actor gets the best possible help as he battles aphasia.
The model is said to be “working with multiple professionals to help the 67-year-old movie star” and “has made sure he sees the best doctors,” a source told PEOPLE.
“He has an assistant at home who makes sure he’s safe, but Emma also looks after him,” the outlet’s insider added.
In April, the family said he was quitting acting due to the condition, a neurocognitive disorder that affects the sufferer’s ability to speak and understand language.

“Because Bruce is older than Emma, they knew his health could deteriorate sooner than theirs. Still, his diagnosis was shocking to her,” the source continued.
Willis is 67 years old.
It comes amid claims from The Sun that Bruce wants to speak publicly about his diagnosis and does an interview with his TV friend Diane Sawyer.
A source said: “Over the years Bruce has considered tapping into a friend like Diane Sawyer to interview him, Emma and Demi about his condition, but the opportunity to continue working has usually gotten in the way of planning.
“It could still happen because Demi and Emma want other families to know what they’ve been through and give the whole situation educational value now that it’s more public.

Support: The model is said to be “working with several professionals to help the movie star”.
“But with everything Bruce is doing now, it needs to be handled sensitively and nobody wants him turned into a circus side show.”
The insider added, “If they can do an interview — or even a documentary project — that will help other families without humiliating theirs, they will.”
The couple have a long history of on-screen interviews, and in 2006 he spoke to her about his struggles to find love after his marriage to actress Demi Moore ended.
A representative for Bruce was contacted by Web for comment.
In a statement shared to the respective Instagram pages of his daughters Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, Bruce’s health was revealed to the world.
“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, we wanted to share as a family that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia which is affecting his cognitive abilities,” they wrote.
“As a result, and with much deliberation, Bruce is stepping down from the career that has meant so much to him.”
The statement added: “This is a truly challenging time for our family and we are so grateful for your continued love, compassion and support. We’re moving through this as a strong family unit and wanted to include his fans because we know how much he means to you, just as you mean to him.
“As Bruce always says, ‘Live it alive’ and together we plan to do just that,” concluded the statement, which was signed by his wife, model Emma, his ex-wife Demi and all of their children.
According to the National Aphasia Association, the condition is a language impairment that affects the production or comprehension of language and the ability to read or write.

The association reports that the condition always results from an injury to the brain, most commonly a stroke, particularly in the elderly.
Head injuries, brain tumors, or infections can also cause aphasia.
The announcement comes more than a year after OK Magazine first speculated about Willis’ deteriorating mental health after he was spotted leaving a California pharmacy without a face mask.
The actor later apologized and said it was an “error of discretion,” but unnamed sources told the magazine Willis “just forgot” to bring the bandana that hung around his neck to his face.

The source said that while Willis hasn’t been diagnosed with early-onset dementia, “he’s been waging a personal war for a number of years.”
They said Willis sold his New York estate to spend more time with his wife and children in Los Angeles and said his wife and ex-wife Moore worked together to care for the famous actor.
“His wife Emma has been helping Demi Moore and the kids Bruce shares with his ex-wife call truces knowing he’s fading,” the unnamed source told the magazine in January 2021.
“Between Demi and Emma, the family has always made sure Bruce has the support and care he may need at all times,” the insider said. “It’s sad that people make fun of him.”
According to the magazine, Willis had previously been spotted using an earphone to feed him lines during his Broadway debut in 2015’s Misery, and the unnamed insider also said he met while filming M. Night Shyamalan’s movie Glass from 2019 had problems.
