Rumer Willis is reveling in the joys of motherhood, proudly having her 15-month-old daughter, Louetta Isley, visit her on set. 

The 35-year-old actress, known for her role in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, recently shared heartwarming snaps on Instagram, capturing moments with her daughter while filming the movie Broken Trail.

In one endearing photo, the Kentucky native, dressed in overalls with special effects blood on her face, holds her daughter close.

"Man, I love my little Lou," Rumer captioned the image. "You can tell she is a Willis cause when she came to visit mama on set and I was covered in blood she didn’t even flinch, she just reached out her arms and grabbed me tight and gave me a big ole smooch."

The proud mother, daughter of Hollywood legends Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, also shared a tender moment of breastfeeding Louetta while preparing for her scene.

 "The privilege of having a job that allows me to have my daughter with me is something I don’t take for granted. I feel so grateful for the support system I have here that allows me to show up and do the best job I can do," she continued.

Rumer expressed her gratitude for having her childhood nanny, Madison, on set to help care for Louetta. 

"To have such a full circle moment of having @nannymadison who took care of me while my mom and dad were on set be the one helping me with Lou is such a gift," she wrote. "I’m so grateful she has the gift of your silliness and play."

This carousel of photos comes amid Bruce Willis' battle with frontotemporal dementia. Rumer has previously shared how much she already sees of her dad in little Lou. Speaking with People last year, she noted the similarities between her daughter’s expressions and her father's. 

"Whenever she's got a stern, discerning look on her face, I just see Bruce Willis," she said. "My dad — especially on Moonlighting — has this little side smirk, that very mischievous twinkle in his eye, and I see that so much in her."
