Bruce Willis’ wife shared a poignant video from the exact holiday that she fell in love with him.
The model reflected on the getaway on social media, showing the action icon in a very snazzy red ski suit, before they sleighed on the snow and enjoyed a bike ride through a winter wonderland.
‘It was that winter, 15 years ago I fell head of over heels in love with him #loveofmylife,’ Emma – who shares children Mabel and Evelyn with the star – captioned the clip.
Fans were living for the rare throwback, and flooded her comments section with praise and thanks.
‘This makes my heart glow,’ a follower posted.
One agreed: ‘A wonderful memory! I wish you many more happy moments together!’
‘This is so beautiful, thank you for sharing,’ another wrote. ‘Hope he is doing well xx.’
An Instagram user added: ‘Thank you for sharing the videos with us Emma. Happy holidays to your beatiful family [sic].’
Bruce carved out a long Hollywood career of blockbusters, and is known best for his role as John McClane in the Die Hard franchise, as well as appearances in Pulp Fiction and The Sixth Sense.

Earlier this year, it was announced that he would be retiring from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, a disorder caused by damage in a specific area of the brain that controls language expression and comprehension.
His loved ones – including Emma, his ex-wife Demi Moore and their children, Rumer, Scout and Tallulah – shared the news in March, posting a joint statement on their various Instagram pages.
What is aphasia?
Aphasia is a condition that impacts a person’s language skills.
This means it can cause trouble with:
According to the NHS, it usually starts due to damage to the left side of the brain after something like, for example, a serious head injury or a stroke.
Perhaps most noticeably, people who have aphasia might have problems speaking, such as by possibly mistakenly using certain words, using the wrong sounds, or using words in the wrong order.
It does not impact a person’s intelligence, but it can emerge both by itself or alongside other health issues like mobility problems and issues with memory.

‘As a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,’ it read.
‘As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.
‘This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in 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.’
