Die Hard legend Bruce Willis has been snapped smiling with his wife Emma Heming Willis in the first public photos that have emerged since his retirement announcement.

Last week, the 67-year-old’s family announced he was “stepping away” from acting after being diagnosed with aphasia, a rare language disorder that’s caused by brain damage and affects communication ability.

The couple’s daughter, Mabel Ray, aged 10, took the photos which were posted by Heming Willis on Instagram and show them sitting on a fallen tree trunk and smiling at each other.

“Mom & Dad in their favorite habitat 🏔🥾 #offthegrid,” the model captioned the shots.

The couple, who share daughters Mabel Ray and seven-year-old Evelyn Penn, celebrated their 13th wedding anniversary in March.

Following last week’s announcement which was shared in a joint family statement across Willis’ wife, ex-wife Demi Moore and children’s social media accounts, Heming Willis thanked fans for their support.

“Your love, support, compassion, prayers really help. I’m grateful. Thank you from the bottom of my heart,” she wrote in an Instagram Story.

Celebrities across the globe have been thinking of Bruce following his diagnosis reveal, with Jamie Lee Curtis writing, “Grace and guts! Love to you all!”

“My heart goes out to Bruce, and all of the family. So thankful you shared this with us. Keeping you all in our prayers,” Rita Wilson shared.
