Bruce’s wife, Emma Heming Willis, 43, posted a video on her Instagram of the actor playing basketball.

He was in the video with three other people as they played in an alley.

The 67-year-old wore beige pants, a grey-green long-sleeved shirt and a blue baseball cap.

“I see you BeeDub,” she captioned the video.

A song played in the background as he dribbled the ball.

He got the ball thrown by someone else, then his friend tried to block it, but he dunked the ball anyway.

Bruce appeared to be in good physical and medical condition while playing.

His family revealed earlier this year that he had been diagnosed with aphasia.

A LIFE-CHANGING DIAGNOSIS

The Willis family announced the news in late March of his diagnosis.

They also said that due to his “cognitive issues” he would stop acting.

Her daughter, Rumer Willis, 33, announced the news in an Instagram post

Alongside a throwback photo of Bruce, 67, Rumer wrote: “To the amazing Bruce supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has had health issues and recently received a diagnosed with aphasia, which has an impact on his cognitive abilities.

“As a result and with great consideration, Bruce is stepping away from the career that meant so much to him.”

She continued: “This is a really difficult time for our family and we so appreciate your continued love, compassion and support.

“We’re going through this as a strong family unit and we wanted to bring in his fans because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.

“As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up’ and together we plan to do just that.”

Aphasia is a medical condition resulting in the inability to understand words and communicate clearly, aphasia usually occurs after a stroke or head injury.

PASS THROUGH

Even though he stopped acting, Bruce did not stop living.

In April, just a week after her diagnosis was shared with the world, Emma shared a photo of them together.

They were in the woods, sitting on a log.

She grabbed his arm and looked down as Bruce looked at the camera.

“Mom and dad in their favorite habitat,” reads the caption for the photo.

It was the first time he was seen after everyone found out about his illness.

BETTER TOGETHER

Since March, Bruce’s family has given him touching tributes and throwback photos that have fans smiling.

Rumer took it instagram to share a photo of her and one of her siblings playing with their Hollywood star dad when they were kids.

The actress, who must have been just a toddler in the snap, can be seen pulling a face as she spreads her mouth and sticks her tongue out.

She gives the camera a cheeky look while daddy Bruce, who has a head full of brown locks, offers a smile to the camera.

Alongside the adorable throwback image, Rumer wrote, “Love you daddy, to the moon and back.

“Thank you for teaching me to be so stupid. I love laughing with you.”

His youngest daughter, Scout, also paid tribute to him, just days after telling everyone about her diagnosis.

“Dad,” she posted with two heart and fire emojis. “Yesterday was so surreal, sharing something so personal. I had no idea how it would be received, there is always an unknown when sharing so vulnerable in the world. I had hoped for some love and compassion, I truly could NEVER have anticipated the depth and breadth of the love we received yesterday as a family.”

She continued to say that the amount of love, energy and prayers the family had received never ceased to strike her and it had humbled her so much it brought her to tears.

“Thank you so much to everyone who reached out to me yesterday, I love and appreciate you with all my heart, it’s going to take me a while to respond to your messages!” Scout has finished the message.

The heartfelt caption is accompanied by a photo of Scout and Bruce smiling at each other as she cuddles up to him in a chair.

The rest of his children, as well as his wife and ex-wife, Demi Moore, have all posted touching tributes to the actor.
