During a conversation with NBC’s Today Show, the 45-year-old, visibly emotional, suggested that the iconic Die Hard star may not fully comprehend the extent of his declining condition due to his diagnosis.
It’s hard to know. It’s hard to know,” she remarked,
also expressing that coming to terms with the reality has been both a “blessing and a curse.”
Emma underscored the profound impact on both the diagnosed individual and the family.
This sentiment holds true for Bruce, herself, and their daughters. She emphasized,
When they say this is a family disease, it really is.”
As the family goes through this challenging period, the former Dior model acknowledged that her husband continues to be a source of inspiration and love.
He’s teaching our daughters so much about care and love, and it’s really a beautiful thing amidst the sadness,”
