Emma shares two daughters with Bruce, Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, eight.
She and her extended family, which includes the Sixth Sense star’s ex-wife, Demi Moore, 60, and their three daughters, Rumer, 34, Scout, 31, and Tallulah, 29, announced that the The journeyman actor would take a step back from his career nearly a year ago in March.
Bruce’s family have revealed the actor was diagnosed with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) last month – less than a year after retiring from acting due to his battle with brain disorder, aphasia .
The Sixth Sense star retired last year as he began his battle with illness which had deteriorated his language skills – and now his condition has ‘progressed’ according to a joint statement from his family.
FTD affects the lobes of the brain behind the forehead, which deal with behavior, problem solving, planning and emotions – with symptoms including personality changes, obsessive behavior and speech difficulties.
The family shared photos and videos of the Pulp Fiction star interacting with them to keep fans updated on his condition.
