Demi Moore and Bruce Willis have long been considered the friendliest exes in Hollywood. The couple, who have been married for 11 years, have children together: Rumer, 34, Scout, 31, and Tallulah, 28. Bruce and Demi became even closer after the actor was diagnosed with aphasia.

A progressive disorder affects the ability to speak and understand language. Demi, along with her children and Emma Heming, Bruce's wife, with whom he lived for 13 years, revealed that the Die Hard actor suffers from this condition. He ended his career in early March of this year.

“Demi was in constant contact with Bruce and Emma,” the source said. – She takes every opportunity to spend time with him. If she's not around, she calls on the phone so Bruce can hear her voice.”

The whole family rallied around the 67-year-old star. “They know he won't be around forever,” the insider said. – Therefore, they cherish every moment.”

Demi and Bruce's families – he also has two daughters with Emma: Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8 – often vacation together in Idaho.

“It's always been a special time,” the source explained. – They are very fond of family traditions such as their pajama parties and game nights.”

Demi and Emma have only grown closer as they both struggle to cope with Bruce's illness. His wife became an intermediary between the former spouses.

“Bruce doesn't have much to say and doesn't seem to understand a lot of what others are saying,” the insider continued. – So Emma was really his voice and communicator.”

Despite his declining health, his loved ones try to stay strong, especially around the holidays.

“There are days when they see glimpses of old Bruce, but those glimpses are short and rare,” the source said. – He seems to be slipping away from them more and more, and it breaks their hearts.”

All the actor's children hope to spend the holidays with their beloved father. “The girls can't imagine Christmas without Bruce,” the source said. – It hurt to see him degrade. Older girls miss old Bruce, the one who teased them about their boyfriends and gave them unsolicited advice.”

With Christmas approaching, the insider added, “all they can do is tell him that they love him and pray for a holiday miracle.”
