Rumer Willis said her dad, Bruce Willis, is “so good” with her 1-year-old daughter, Louetta, amid his frontotemporal dementia diagnosis.

“He’s so good. I actually got to see him right before I came out [to New York],” Rumer told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager on “Today” Wednesday.

“And Lou is just starting to walk a little bit, and she was walking over to him, and it was so sweet.”

The “Sorority Row” actress — who is the oldest of the “Die Hard” actor’s five daughters — said it’s nostalgic seeing her dad spend time with his granddaughter, whom she welcomed in April 2023 with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas.

“He’s a girl dad, through and through. I saw him with my sisters, my little sisters,” she shared.

After Kotb asked if Rumer was “seeing that all come back,” she nodded in agreement.

“Honestly, seeing them with her, it almost unlocks all of these childhood memories because being a grandparent, I think, is the best,” Rumer, 35, said of Bruce and her mom, Demi Moore.

“They have all of the love and joy without any of the responsibilities. They get to just spoil her.”

Bruce — who shares daughters Rumer, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 30, with ex-wife Moore, 61, and daughters Mabel, 12, and Evelyn, 10, with wife Emma Heming Willis — has seen tons of support from his family since they announced in March 2022 that he would be “stepping away” from acting due to his Aphasia diagnosis.

Then, in February 2023, the family announced the action star’s condition worsened with a “cruel” diagnosis of dementia.

While the family said there were “no treatments for the disease,” they hope the “media attention” surrounding the “Sixth Sense” actor can focus “shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research.” demimoore/Instagram

While they said there were “no treatments for the disease,” Bruce’s family said they hope the “media attention” surrounding him can focus “shining a light on this disease that needs far more awareness and research.”

An insider told Us Weekly last December that Bruce’s diagnosis “brought the whole family even closer together.”

“No one knows how much time Bruce has left, so they’re soaking up every moment they get with him,” the source added.
