Demi Moore is one proud mama. She watched daughter Rumer Willis, along with her pro partner Val Chmerkovskiy, dance her way to the mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars on Tuesday.

For many episodes of DWTS, it was a family affair for Rumer Willis, with Demi Moore, dad Bruce Willis, his wife Emma Heming, and more in the audience watching her perform.

Following the announcement of Rumer's big win, Demi Moore took to Twitter to share her excitement and her pride.

Moore said she was "filled with love, pride and awe" for her daughter, as well as her pro partner, Val Chmerkovskiy.

The photo Demi tweeted was typical of Rumer's 'family affair.'

Demi Moore also shared a selfie taken with daughters--and Rumer Willis's sisters--Scout and Tallulah Willis, as they cheered for Rumer and Val.

Demi Moore admits that when Rumer Willis first talked about competing on Dancing With the Stars, she had some doubts. She talked about how it made her feel, indicating her "insides … screaming 'No.'"

It's quite likely that Demi Moore is feeling much different about Rumer's decision today.

"One of the most beautiful things I've witnessed is watching [Rumer's] passion become greater than her fear," Moore during a taped segment on DWTS as she reflected on Rumer's time spent competing. "It has nothing to do with her being my kid or Bruce's kid. It has everything to do with just who she is."

Congratulations to Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy on winning this season of Dancing With the Stars--and to Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, too, for raising one incredibly talented daughter.
