Bruce Willis is embracing fatherhood yet again!
On Monday, May 5, the 59-year-old actor and his wife Emma Heming-Willis, 35, celebrated the birth of their second daughter, Evelyn Penn Willis. The happy couple are already the parents of a two-year-old daughter, Mabel Ray. According to People, the Die Hard actor’s representative confirmed that the baby weighed 8 lbs., 10 oz. The representative also issued a brief statement in regards to the health of the mother and child.
“Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully,” reads a statement from Willis’ rep. “Mabel is delighted to have a new baby sister.”
Although Willis’ wife didn’t announce the news via social media like most celebrities, she did take time to share a picture of her husband on “daddy duty” the day the baby was born. The model actress took to Instagram to share a picture of Willis with their daughter Mabel.
“Mabel loves a ride on the escalator! That might had been the 50th time. #DaddyDuty,”she captioned. Many viewers actually assumed that Willis and his daughter were riding on the escalator in a hospital awaiting the birth of the new addition to their family. The happy couple didn’t confirm or deny the actor’s whereabouts at the time, but many agreed that the picture was the epitome of admirable simplicity at its finest.
Although new baby girl is Willis’ second with his wife, Emma, he’s actually the father of five daughters overall. The Emmy Award-winning actor also has three daughters – Rumer Willis, 25, Scout Willis, 22, and Tallulah Willis, 20 – with his ex-wife of 13 years, actress Demi Moore.
Back in the summer of 2013, Willis was asked how it felt to be outnumbered by so many women. He made it known that it doesn’t bother him one bit! He just embraces the advantage of it.
“It’s all good. I haven’t found a time yet that’s bad,” he said. “I get to learn a lot more about women than most men do—because it’s just me and 20 women around me.”
