Bruce Willis is a Hollywood superstar with a filmography to match. The 63-year-old actor has been active in films since the 1980s, starring in blockbuster hits such as Die Hard, The Last Boy Scout12 monkeysAlpha Dog, and Sin City. 

Aside from his film career, Willis has kept busy with an illustrious love life. The Hollywood hunk has been linked to a variety of different starlets, but he has been off the market for nearly a decade now. Willis has settled into a happy home life with wife Emma Heming and their two children. But, who is Emma and how long have the pair been involved?

How long have Bruce Willis and Emma Heming been married?

Bruce Willis’ gorgeous wife Emma Heming is a relative unknown in Hollywood, but her famous husband never fails to sing her praises. The pair married in 2009, almost a decade after Willis divorced his first wife, Demi Moore, but that hasn’t stopped people from comparing the two. Heming is a bombshell in her own respect, with dark hair, a slim figure and exotic good looks.

Willis and Heming have maintained that their relationship works because Heming happily looks after Willis and the pairs two children together. Mabel Ray Willis was born in 2012, and Evelyn Penn Willis was born in 2014. The family resides in Bedford Hills, a New York City suburb.

How did the Willis and Heming meet?

The story is a bit convoluted, but Willis was happy to clear things up for the masses. According to Willis during an appearance on a late night talk show, he and Heming met years before they dated. Willis alleges he went to check out a gym and spotted Heming walking out. He was taken by her and asked a friend about her. They were introduced, but at the time Heming was seeing someone.

The pair remained friends for several years while seeing other people, but once Heming was available, Willis swooped in. He asked Heming on a date, and they have been together ever since. Heming was also part of a casting call for a movie Willis was consulting on, although his romantic interest in the former model didn’t land her a role in the film.

Bruce Willis’ first marriage

Bruce Willis married Demi Moore in November 1987. They met during the premiere of Stakeout, a 1987 movie that starred Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estevez. The former pair shares three daughters. Rumor Willis was born in 1988, exactly nine months after the pair wed. Scout Willis followed in 1991, and Tallulah joined the family in 1994.

In 1998 Willis and Moore separated after 12 years of marriage. Their divorce was finalized in 2000. Willis has said that he felt like he failed his children by failing to make the marriage work in the long term. Willis maintains a close relationship with Moore, even now that their children are adults.

Bruce Willis’ other relationships

Willis, even though he’s been married twice, is no stranger to the dating scene. Between his divorce from Moore and subsequent marriage to Heming, Willis dated several starlets and was rumored to have hooked up with even more. Shortly after his split from Moore, Willis began dating Alisha Klass, an adult film star. The pair split in 2001.

In 2003, Willis was linked to Brooke Burns of Baywatch fame. The pair split in 2004, and from there Willis began dating Karen McDougal. McDougal is a former playmate. The couple dated through 2007. In 2009, Willis married Heming and has been a one-woman man ever since.

While Willis has had a rather robust dating career, especially considering his long marriages, it seems like he is no longer on the hunt. Willis and Heming seem to be a perfect pair, sharing a family, a home and deep respect for one another.
