Bruce Willis becomes a father for the fifth time – meaning he now has as many children as Die Hard movies

The actor’s family just keeps getting bigger - like his action movie credits

Bruce Willis has procreated again.

The Die Hard actor, 59, has welcomed his fifth child – a daughter, Evelyn Penn Willis.

Evelyn is the second child for the actor and his 35-year-old wife, Emma Heming-Willis, after she gave birth to Mabel Rae in April last year.

“Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully,” reads a statement Willis’s representative. “Mabel is delighted to have a new baby sister.”

As we helpfully pointed out when news broke of Heming-Willis’s pregnancy, this means that the actor now has a child for each of his Die Hard films. The franchise currently comprises of Die Hard (1988), Die Hard 2 (1990), Die Hard: With a Vengeance (1995), Live Free or Die Hard (2007) and A Good Day to Die Hard (2013).

The star also has three children with former wife, Demi Moore: Tallulah, 19, Scout, 22, and Rumer, 25.

It’s difficult to ascertain what is more impressive – his correlating number of children and films, or the fact that he’s still producing children at the age of 59. Willis has been married to his current wife for five years.

The actor has also hinted that a Die Hard 6 could be on the horizon. Perhaps, hypothetically, the Willis family will expand even further in the future, if only to fit our ridiculous hypothesis.
