Fifth Child on the Way for Bruce Willis

Bruce Willis Expecting Fifth Child Dave M. Benett/Wireimage

Bruce Willis is about to dive hard into daddy duty — again!

The Red 2 actor, 58, and his wife Emma Heming-Willis, 37, are expecting their second child together, a source confirms to PEOPLE.

The Willis’ rep had no comment on the family’s happy news.

After tying the knot in 2009, Willis and the model turned designer welcomed their daughter Mabel Ray, now 20 months.

I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’m changing diapers like a champ,” the actor told Zoomer in June.

“What I’ve also discovered is how much love I feel for our baby. I think I’m even more open and more giving as a father now. I pay more attention now because I value it more and I’m less caught up with my career.”

Willis is also dad to daughters Tallulah, 19, Scout, 22, and Rumer, 25, his children from his previous marriage to Demi Moore.

I LOVE Bruce Willis! Congratulations to them both :)

Ris on

Kind of feel bad for demi Moore that Ashton gets to have kids, bruce does too and she’s older and alone. :( she said she wanted more kids a few yrs ago.

klutzy_girl on

Congratulations to them! This is great news. Wonder if it’ll be a boy this time or another girl.

Carrie on

a nearly 60 year old man has no business having any kids. In the non celebrity world, this would never occur.

klutzy_girl on

Carrie – oh really now? Because I knew someone in high school who was born when his father was seventy-two (and his mother was obviously much younger). So think again.

Jenn on

Gross.

Amp88 on

I’m happy for the couple, but I feel sorry for this child in that he or she won’t get all that much time with his or her daddy. By the time high school ends, Bruce will be almost 80. :(

Kat on

Trying to have a baby boy. Sigh!

Wow all girls

GoodGrief on

Good Lord, ‘carrie’ that has to be the dumbest comment I’ve ever read in my life. You literally just said a man Bruce’s age who isn’t a celebrity would never have a child. Unreal. How utterly stupid of you. This happens EVERY single day. Women in their late 40′s are having children now. Single women are having children on their own. Same sex couples are having kids. And yes, men in their late 50s are becoming fathers too. Its the 21st century…time for YOU to realize that.

Jess on

How come all these young women married to Hollywood men are ALL models turn actresses, chef ect.?? On second note, she sure knows how to secure her investment and future payouts by getting knocked up. I doubt otherwise if he is a trash collector, plumber or gardener she would marry someone at his age and have a couple of kids.

loyola on

Every baby DREAMS of having a 59 year-old daddy! and he feels love for his baby? Hmmm…what did he feel for the first three? It should be a familiar feeling by now. Twit.

Eight billion, coming soon to a planet near (under!) you.

Debra on

i guess the kids he had with demi were for practice.

Sue on

I’m sorry but does he TRY to find the most hideous names?

dee on

Best wishes to everyone.

Bofan on

No business having a baby at his age? Why? And all younger folks are somehow qualified because they are young? I think 20 years of love is better than 50 of indifference. Period.

Sandy on

Whether boy or girl, what counts is that the baby is healthy

Sandy on

Whether boy or girl, the important thing is that the baby is healthy

” On second note, she sure knows how to secure her investment and future payouts by getting knocked up. I doubt otherwise if he is a trash collector, plumber or gardener she would marry someone at his age and have a couple of kid.”

Right. No one in her right mind would. But at the very least, she will not have financial worries. If she were with a plumber on his fifth kid, you would criticize that he has no money, why is she having kids with him?

“Kind of feel bad for demi Moore that Ashton gets to have kids, bruce does too and she’s older and alone. :( she said she wanted more kids a few yrs ago.”
What the HELL does this have to do with Demi?? She’s older now. She had THREE children. BIOLOGY has taken it’s course, why even mention her here??

“a nearly 60 year old man has no business having any kids. In the non celebrity world, this would never occur.”
Happens more than you think. I personally know a VERY happy couple almost 30 years apart. He’s on his second set of children. He’s a lawyer.

Too much judgment and self righteousness.

Selena on

I always cringe for the older kids when the dad states how much better he’s doing as a parent now. It’s got to be tough to read that stuff. If she’s smart, she’ll be out of there though in another 15-20 years. He’ll be 80, she’ll be 60, it won’t be pretty.

Amanda on

How long has his wife been 35 years old? It seems like that was the age they were reporting for her 5 years ago. Also, just because a man can have children until he dies doesn’t mean that he should. Birth defects and mental disorders are related to advanced paternal age.

lee on

It is a kind of terrific to bruce who is old man to have a new baby. I am sure that is not common having a baby when a man is over 50years old. Matbe that is because he is still passionate about physical love he could have with a his sexy wife.

Sue on

Wow, he and Michael Douglas are such great dads when they’re older. Their first sets of kids must love hearing how happy they are “this time around.”

Lisa on

Congratulations to them! Guess, he’s still trying for that boy, eh?

LM on

I’m thinking he won’t quit until he gets a boy

Justme on

My step mother is younger than I am. My father and her adopted a child who is the same age as my 12 yr old son. i have a brother who was born 17 days after i had my first child (she is 23 now) I am 44 and I have a 3 yr old. My ex father in law has a daughter who was conceived when 67! So it does happen in the “real world” not just in Hollywood!

Susan on

Hope he finally has a son. Congrats

Susan on

I guess some men must go through the first 40-50 years of their lives miserable. Because they all say how happy they are when they’re 55-65, and sacking a woman half their age. Must make their first kids real happy to read that. No two ways about it, he’s a shriveled old dude, with a hot wife. Must be some psychological deficiency there…..

retirementdad on

My dad was 65 when I was born. I never noticed he was older than the other dads. I did notice that he took me camping, taught me to ride a bike, how to fish and came to all my school plays and was a wonderful supportive dad. I didn’t care that he was a couple years older than my grandmother. True, I didn’t get him long, he passed when he was 90 but he was an amazing dad and I still follow the values he taught me. For all of you that think older parents are disgusting, my suggestion is don’t do it then. For those who did go down this path, good on you, worked for our family! That and having a siblings that were much older (one is 40 years older) was always good for a laugh.

Kate on

The man is 58 yrs old. I thought the same thing about Michael Landon who sadly left 2 young children fatherless. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t see the need to impregnant every woman you date, think you love or marry, nor do I see the need to get pregnant by every man you think you love this week or next, or by however many husbands you choose to have.

bkable on

I think you have to be careful saying things like “I’m happier than I’ve ever been in my life” when you have other children…
He has 3 daughters with Demi Moore who could read that as “I wasn’t happy when we were a family” … I’m not trying to be critical, I just think when you have kids, you need to be careful what you say about your past.

Charli on

Congrats to them! They make a lovely couple.

huntermarie4 on

Baby

Boston93 on

Ewww. You’re the age of a grandpa. Not a dad.

Alli Christian Ordaz on

dude his daughters are mmm no lookers…so maybe these kids will be super gorg!

Anonymous on

His comments are insensitive towards his girls. He is basically saying that he was to wrapped up in himself and his career to raise the kids. Men always marry younger women and try to do it all over. Idiots.

Bella on

Congratulations to them! Babies are a wonderful joy! As long as they are happy, and the baby will be healthy, then that’s all that matters.

Jaly on

For all you worrying about his other three girls, Bruce and Emma have a great relationship with all of them. Life is for living, and it’s also for love.

kanni bassativa on

When Bruce Willis orgasms he yells “YIPPE-AYE-CIAYE-MOTHERF@#KERS” so wrong…

john on

Congrats to you bruce, and your lovely gorgeous wife.

Trish on

I also think it’s unfair to the children. No offense at all meant to those who had older parents but I think it’s kind of selfish to be having kids after your 40′s. I went to school with a girl and her father was 65 when she was born and he passed away her junior year of high school and I always thought of how sad that was that she lost him when she was so young and that he wound up missing out on so much of her life. I don’t know…that’s just my opinion.

Trish on

omepeopleneedtobegrateful – What are you talking about??

charlotteborland on

Carrie – my dad had me when he was 59 and I like to think I’ve turned out just fine. Congrats to Bruce and Emma :)

sarah on

How do you populate the earth? Have hollywood actors have sex with alot of diffent women at any age

Stacey on

My father was 32 when I was born. He walked out on me and my mom two years later. Never paid a penny in child support, never cared whether I was dead or alive. Now, I agree that you shouldn’t be having a child when you’re almost 60. Still, Bruce is in great shape, and is a caring and kind man. Better to have a father like that for a relatively short time than a father like mine. BTW, this has nothing with him being a movie star. I wouldn’t mind if I was born to a caring 58-year-old plumber making a working-class salary.

Sherron Teal on

Where in Gods name does he get these names from? Scout, Rumor, Tallelulah, Mabel? If he has a son I hope he does a better job with the name.

skkdnva on

I don’t like Bruce Willis. It was cemented when Sylvester Stallone told about how Bruce Willis refused to do 4 days of work on a movie for 3 million dollars. He wanted 4 million, so they scrapped him and got Harrison Ford to play the part. He seems like a pompous @sshole. Anyway, on that note, I think the people who are posting that he is too old to have kids are stupid. Why is he too old? Well, I guess the general consensus is that because of his advanced age he’ll be checking out soon. I find that laughable. I had many friends lose their parents when we were still in school. Death does not discriminate, it takes any one, no matter what their age. He could outlive any of the people making those comments. Only time will tell….

Anais on

@ Carrie , my grandfather was 60 when he had my dad. Are you telling me that a generation that was born after my dad has no business in this world? yet your pathetic comments do..

Emma on

I have always liked Bruce Willis! This is amazing news, congratulations to the happy couple! I wonder if this one will be a boy

Anonymous on

Selena- “If she’s smart, she’ll be out of there though in another 15-20 years. He’ll be 80, she’ll be 60, it won’t be pretty.” So people suddenly become unlovable when they reach 80? Wow! I feel sorry for all the older people in your life (not to mention your husband if you have one- since clearly you don’t believe in the “in sickness and and in health” part of the marriage vows!)!

Anyway, congrats to them (and I don’t think they’re neccesarily trying for a boy, btw. If memory serves, Bruce has said before that he’d be perfectly happy with all girls! :)).

Keykey on

I guess he won’t be much of a grandparent:(

Sam on

Used to like him, now I just think he is a nut job, so much anger and arrogance there

Hazel on

I think Bruce’s wife should find herself a husband her own age whom she can have children with and enjoy life with…let’s face it…he’s old enough to be his own children’s grandfather!!

Santacruz on

Well, why not? But it makes no difference to me, I don’t like him at all.I never saw one interview where he had something interesting to say, just shallow blabla…

thenitenurse on

I feel happy for Bruce. I’m sure living with that banana boat Demi was quite a trip.

DALLAS on

MEN CAN HAVE IT ALL NO AGE BARRIERS..

isyslily on

he could possibly be a grandpa and a dad at the same time! a little unconventional but it always depends on the person/family. my son is the same age as his 6 yr old aunt and we think its completely awesome they get to grow up together! very happy for bruce…wonder if it will be a boy this time! regardless….its exciting!!

Katie on

She looks like one of his daughters – ewwww

Jen on

People are entitiled to have children at whatever age they want to. Nobody is guaranteed tomorrow, so there is nothing that says if you have your children at 20 you will be around to watch them grow up. Who cares how old somebody is when they choose to have a child so long as they are able to love and care for the child. That’s all that matters.

Congratulations to them!

claire on

You go Bruce!!!!

Kari on

Why so much negativity? They are having a baby! They seem very happy.

Lily on

@omepeopleneedtobegrateful
What’s wrong with daughters? You sound so bitter..

Jen on

If this was a 50-60 year old woman shooting out kids, there would be riots in the streets. However, Bruce can populate the world and it’s wonderful? Wow.

Sun on

Congrats to the family! Hope this time it’s boy! Keep up a great job in movies, Bruce!

Anonymous on

Nice trophy wife.

Michele on

I just feel sorry for the kids. It’s not fun having OLD parents. When this baby graduates from high school, he will be 78 years old.

Sally on

Good for you, Bruce! Hopefully, your kids will have your political views and we can out number those liberals.

Barbara on

In a non celebrity world a 35 year old would not be dating someone 23 years older….if fame and money were not part of the deal she wouldn’t be with him to begin with.
Isn’t funny how when Hugh Hefners so called Girlfriends were done filming the show and were done with him they didn’t go after guys in their eighties..

Amber on

Bruce Willis is still HOT for his age. You are only as old as you feel, and how well you look after yourself. Good for him. Everyone saying nasty, negative things, wait t’ll you are that age, you won’t feel the same way as you do now about it.

moviequota on

I’m calling it, its a boy! Bruce will finally get his son :)

Why the age issue? REALLY, Why the 1st marriage issue, really, come on. Like everyone heres so friggin perfect..right, leave them alone…I hope they have a healthy baby♥♥ Congratulations★★★ Babys are a blessing!!

thefriendcorps on

I think people seriously need to stop with the denial. These older fathers either have some help or just got lucky. It isn’t fair to the children and it really makes me cringe when these guys start saying how much better it is the 2nd time around. How they get to do this and do that. This joker has 3 older daughters and that is really a slap in the face to them. But out in the real world it isn’t always sugar and spice. I know someone right now who had a kid when he was older and it has taken a toll on him and his marriage because his wife is a nitwit. He has 3 older children too. And she’s trying to get him to have another one and he’s absolutely adamant that it isn’t going to happen and he’s told her over and over again because he’s also over 50. I’ve heard this from far too many older fathers that if they had it to do over again they wouldn’t. They don’t have the energy nor the patience for dealing with a toddler or baby. We have life stages for a reason and when you try to turn the clock back, it rarely works out for you and guess what, the children are the ones who suffer. I’m sick of the denial and the BS. Any age past 40 is too darn old to try to pretend you’re still young enough to raise kids. Past 50, you’re completely out of your mind.

Patti on

CONGRATULATIONS! BABYS ARE A BLESSING…And really you guys got off the age issue, its moot along with his 1st marriage.

They’re MARRIED,they’re HAPPY,they have enough $ to take care of 100 children! What’s the problem??? It seems that a lot of people today just cannot enjoy the success of others. I, for one, pray the very BEST of God’s blessings on them both and on their children! Come on people~ the joy of others doesn’t take anything away from our own joy! Happy Christmas everyone! ;>)

kris on

Congratulations. It doesn’t seem fair that all of these old men celebrities can crank out kids with decades younger women but that is the way it is I guess.

kris on

Congratulations. Doesn’t seem fair sometimes these old geezer celebrity men can crank out kids with much younger women but that is the way it is.

Sue on

Carrie, in the NON celebrity world it does occur. People have children AND adopt all the time. Don’t be so judgemental.

Awesome …. So happy for them

Lynn on

Just because you can — Doesn’t mean you should
Your FIFTY EIGHT and already have what 4 or 5 kids already? Disgusting !!

d1anaw on

Time for these old guys to stop making babies. When your kids are old enough to be parents, it’s time to hang up the reproduction machine. Of course, that would first mean you need to stop marrying people young enough to be your kid. ewwww

travlinpoetdiva on

For all those who are voicing their disapproval regarding how a wealthy celebrity lives, conducts his life, Robert Di Nero is 70 something and he has a two year old. Therefore, since none of them have made any of you the surrogates at the time of their deaths, get lives, leave others alone to what makes them happy, many read so miserable, hope none of you have children, ever, no matter what your age is or will be in the future.

RC on

Momma’s Baby, Papa’s maybe!

vonsdy1 on

Congrats to you both. As for others, stop the ignorant comments. My aunt had a baby at 54, natural and healthy. God does what is best and its not for us to judge. Age is a number and today 50 or 60 is not the same as it was years ago. Let others live their life and be happy and mind your own business.

EL on

Good for Bruce. Still looks good. Hopefully he’ll have a son this time!

Guy is nuts for knocking her up at his age.

on the old guy thing, as a fellow old guy, i see many men now appreciating the families perhaps more when they are settled financially and can take their minds off the rat race of earning. BW can now work only when he wants, lucky guy.

If he keeps trading them in on a new model he could have 3-4 more kids before he dies.

Lori on

It seems it’s always OK to be an older father but to be an older mother doesn’t draw the same positive reaction.
Oh well, I’ve always liked him, Congratulations to them.

forcoors on

My friend worked in the VIP section of an airline. He said Bruce was the biggest A-hole of them all. He met tons of “celebrities”.

Cate on

My dad nearly died when I was a senior in high school. He had kids as a young married man. I could just as easily been fatherless. My daughter got pregnant her senior year. My point is that a parent can be any age and be either good or bad. It’s what he or she does with the gifts they were given. Leave Mr. Willis alone. Let him enjoy his new baby. Each of my 4 children were different and so I was different for each of them. People change as they age. He would be a different father no matter who the the mother was.

Kathy on

Wow – lots of negative comments, but I agree with most of them. His wife does look more like a daughter, and he will be an old father to his young kids. I always liked Bruce Willis’ movies, and his quoted comments are truthful but sad, especially that he “values” his second family more. The crooner, Bing Crosby had two families. His first kids remember a very different father than the second set of kids. I respect men who have their priorities straight the first time around. Men have to learn to balance family AND career, and not wait for a second family to be “happy.” Overall, how sad.
