Demi Moore and daughters in Harper's Bazaar
Actress Demi Moore, 45, and daughters Rumer Glenn, 19, Scout LaRue, 16, and Tallulah Belle, 14, all pose for a spread in Harper’s Bazaar‘s April issue. Along with husband Ashton Kutcher, 30, and ex Bruce Willis, 52, they form a successful blended family that goes against the Hollywood norm. According to Demi, that’s exactly how she wanted it to be for her girls.
I didn’t bring somebody into their lives lightly … Being with meisn’t about just being in a relationship with me; it’s about someonestepping into a situation where there is already a huge level ofresponsibility.
Look, I’m the product of divorced parents, and my brother and I werethe pawns in my parents’ game. I never wanted that for mykids.
For his part, Ashton has been pleasantly surprised at how positively everything has turned out — despite initial reservations.
At first, I didn’t know how it was all going to play out, buteverything fell into place. I just had to get over my ego, which was screaming, ‘This guy usedto sleep with your woman.’ And I listened instead to the little voice inside that was whispering, ‘This guy loves and cares about your woman.’ Once I did that, it was a cakewalk.
Weall support each other. I’m occasionally overwhelmed by everyone’sgenerosity. Iam eternally grateful for having them in my life. That makes me want tocry and hug them and cry a little bit more.

However, youngest daughter Tallulah reveals that having a stepfathercloser in age to her oldest sister than her mother (11 years vs. 15years) has had its own unintended consequences.
I was in fourth grade [when they got together], so it didn’t hitme as much as it did Scout andRumer. But it still hit me a little, and it still does now. I find itweird that people think my stepdad is hot.
I love it. We are onebig family. Late at night, after a long day, we can sit around andlaugh with each other.
