The Die Hard actor's other grown daughters shared Scout's story to express their thanks as well. "Second this Scouter. Feeling the abundant love for our guy and our family," added Tallulah Willis.

Bruce's eldest daughter Rumer, who is currently expecting her first child, then shared this story with the addition: "I third this Scouter and Buusk. Feeling so deeply grateful and in awe of the love for us and our sweet Daddio."

Rumer, Tallulah and Scout are Bruce's daughters with his ex-wife Demi Moore, who has remained very close to the actor since their divorce. The retired actor also shares two daughters with his current wife Emma: Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8. See the Hollywood star enjoying a day in the sun with his youngest children in the video below.

Shared along with a photo of Bruce at the beach, the women's statement read: "We [want] to give you an update about our beloved husband, father and friend since we now have a deeper understanding of what he is experiencing.

"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)," they 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."
