He's kept a low profile since his family announced two months ago that he'd been diagnosed with aphasia. But Bruce Willis was recently spotted out and about and trying to stay in good health.

The 67-year-old Die Hard actor was recently seen exercising with a trainer in Los Angeles. Wearing a white T-shirt, dark grey track pants and trainers, Bruce basked in the sun on a walk in California. At one point he was spotted picking a flower.

In March, Bruce's family – including wife Emma Hemming Willis (43), ex-wife actress Demi Moore (59), and their three daughters, Rumer (33), Scout (30) and Tallulah (28) – issued a joint statement on Instagram announcing his diagnosis.

The illness, which affects cognitive functioning, has resulted in the actor having to retire after 40 years as one of Hollywood’s biggest action stars.

The news came as a shock to his fans, but Bruce appears to be in good spirits. 

He was photographed on a hike with Emma a few weeks after his diagnosis. The couple have two daughters, Mabel (10) and Evelyn (7).

Two weeks ago, Emma shared an Instagram story of Bruce playing basketball with friends, which she captioned, “I see you BeeDub." 

She also shared pictures of Bruce helping Mabel with a loose tooth. “He’s the guy that pulls the teeth out around here,” she wrote. 

Emma has been keeping fans updated on how Bruce has been dealing with his diagnosis, often sharing glimpses of life at home with him.

She admits it hasn't been easy, and she realises she needs space for herself too.

“I struggle with making the time for my self-care every day. I put my family's needs above my own, which I found doesn't make me any kind of hero,” she said in a recent interview.

“That amount of care for everyone else within my household had taken a toll on my mental health and overall health, and it served no one in my family.”

Emma has had a lot of support from Demi, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah, an insider says.

All of them are rallying behind Bruce.

“We love spending time with each other, and we know that time is precious, and I don't take that for granted.”
