Bruce Willis to welcome fifth child: Actor now has as many offspring as Die Hard movies
If the rumours are true, it would bring the steely-eyed heartthrob up to a total of five children: one for every movie in the action series
Were you thinking what we were thinking when reports surfaced that Bruce Willis’ wife Emma is expecting a child?
Probably not – chances are, you’re not nearly as cerebrally tenuous.
But we couldn’t help noticing that, if the rumours are true, it would bring the steely-eyed Hollywood heartthrob up to a grand total of five children: one for every movie in the Die Hard series.
Emma and Bruce, 58, got married in 2009, and welcomed their first child together, Mabel Ray, earlier this year.
“I’m happier than I’ve ever been. I’m changing diapers like a champ,” he said at the time.
“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.”
The star of the hit action franchise – which comprises of Die Hard (1988), Die Hard 2 (1990), Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995), Live Free or Die Hard (2007) and this year’s A Good Day to Die Hard – is already a father to daughters Tallulah, 19, Scout, 22, and Rumer, 25, from his previous marriage to Demi Moore.
Reps for Willis are, of course, yet to confirm or deny whether the reports are true.
But we’re up for taking this wild speculation even further: could there be even more children on the way for the star? Before production started on Die Hard V, Willis did state that he hoped to retire his character John McClane after a sixth film.
“At the moment, I can run and I can fight on screen,” he said. “But there will come a time when I no longer want to do that. That’s when I’ll step away from the Die Hard films.”
According to reports, the movie already has a title (Die Hardest. Yep. We’re blinded by originality also) and a location (Tokyo, randomly).
Script writer Ben Trebilcook even went as far to suggest that producers may even look to another action hero, Rocky Balboa, for inspiration on ending the series.
“There are many hurdles to leap yet and two of those are called Bruce Willis and [producer] Alex Young,” Trebilcook told Total Film. “There's the possibility producers might go back and find some other source material to base the next one on, like they did with the first and second. Mine though, I feel it could be the Rocky Balboa of the Die Hard franchise.”
So, yeah. Baby number six. It's destiny, surely?
