Demi Moore is more than ready to take on her new role as “kooky grandma” after her eldest daughter Rumer Willis announced this week that she’s pregnant.
The actor revealed that she and boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas are expecting their first baby in a joint Instagram post on Tuesday. In the first black-and-white shot they shared, Thomas plants a kiss on his girlfriend’s pregnant stomach, and in another cradles her bump with a look of surprise on his face. And in a third, Willis shows off her growing belly in silhouette, standing in front of a large, sunlit window. Her sisters were quick to express their enthusiasm over the announcement with Tallulah commenting, “EEEEEEEE!!!! we stan this mommy!!” and Scout adding, “I’m weep.” Willis and her musician boyfriend have been linked since earlier this year.
And Moore also clearly can’t wait for her grandchild’s arrival, re-sharing the couple’s pregnancy announcement on her own account with the caption, “Entering my hot kooky unhinged grandma era.” To which Tallulah simply replied, “Screaming.” The G.I. Jane actor also added a comment under Willis’s post that read, “So happy for you my love!” This new baby will be the first grandchild for Moore and her ex-husband Bruce Willis, who also share daughters Tallulah and Scout. The Sixth Sense star is also father to two daughters with his current wife, Emma Heming Willis, 10-year-old Mabel and 8-year-old Evelyn. And Emma joined in the celebration as well, sharing the couple’s announcement on her Instagram account and writing, “Baby news is happy news!!! Congratulations @rumerwillis and @derekrichardthomas We are elated over here!”
This happy news comes after a difficult year for the Willis family, who announced in March that Bruce would be stepping away from his acting career after being diagnosed with aphasia, a medical condition that can affect a person’s ability to communicate. They wrote in a joint statement on Instagram at the time, “This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”
