Emotional birthday tributes keep pouring in for Bruce Willis, who turned 69 on Tuesday.

The Moonlighting star’s ex-wife, Demi Moore, 61, took to Instagram to send him well wishes. “Happy birthday, BW! We love you and are so grateful for you ♥️” she wrote in the caption to a carousel of three photos.

In the first, Moore is perched on the arm of a chair in which Willis is sitting; she clasps his hand, which is resting on her arm.

The second photo features Willis smiling at his granddaughter Louetta, while the last picture is a throwback featuring Willis with the three daughters he and Moore share — Rumer, 35, Scout, 32, and Tallulah, 30. Louetta is the daughter Rumer welcomed last year with her boyfriend, musician Derek Richard Thomas.

Earlier Tuesday, Willis’s wife of 15 years, Emma Heming Willis, also toasted the action movie icon. In her own post, she shared a photo of Willis holding a baby.

“Just like you, we simply adore him. What you might not know, but maybe you could imagine, that being wrapped in his arms is the safest place in this whole wide world," she wrote about Willis. "He’s a true gentle-man. With so much love to give and share. That’s what I get to see, his true core. I can tell you, it’s so pure and ever so good.”

"Happy Birthday my love. You are the gift that keeps giving 💞," she continued.

Willis and Heming have two daughters of their own, Mabel, 11, and Evelyn, 9.

Willis’s eldest daughter, Rumer, also penned a heartfelt message to her dad on Tuesday.

“Oh Daddio, to be loved by you is such a gift. You are the funniest, most tender, charming, out of this world silly talented and magical papa,” she wrote in the caption to a series of photos.

“Looking through these photos this morning I am just filled with the deepest gratitude that we chose to spend this life together. I am your first baby and man sometimes I wish I could be tiny enough to just cozy up on your chest again and laugh and cuddle you,” she added.

“I love you so deep in my bones I don’t know how my muscles hold them. You are the greatest papa I could ever hope for. Thank you for your generosity, your silliness and heart. Lou loves you so big,” she wrote, referring to Louetta.

“Happy Birthday Daddio,” Rumer concluded her message.

Scout also honored her dad, whom she called a "tender, moody, beautiful, very Piscean man" in her own Instagram message.

She too posted a carousel of photos and wrote, "HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE KING. 3/19/24 Wild how so little has changed even though so much has changed."

Scout continued: "my dad is one of my best friends, perhaps now on a deeper level than ever honestly. I cherish his affection and the immense freedom with which he's always loved us."

Referencing the third picture she posted, Scout added, "I did this super fancy debutante ball, my mom made me take waltz lessons, but then when they had my dad and I start the evening dancing, i asked if he knew what he was doing and he said 'just go with it' and we did. He swung me around that fancy ballroom with Jersey boy confidence and a mischievous elegance that I pray every day I inherited."

"A tender, moody, beautiful, very Piscean man, whose depth of love for his family can only be felt, not articulated," she continued. "Any words I use would be woefully inadequate. So instead I want to say thank you for loving my papa, thank you for sharing your stories of what he means to you, it’s such a gift to feel your love. Happy happy birthday to the GOAT."

Tallulah, for her part, shared her sisters' posts on her Instagram stories and also shared an old video of Willis shaving her head.

"I love my twin HBD," she wrote.
