Bruce Willis and wife Emma Heming Willis are celebrating their 15th wedding anniversary.

On Thursday, the 45-year-old model marked their "crystal anniversary" on Instagram by posting a photo in which she is kissing the 69-year-old actor. In her caption, Emma wrote the pair's union is "stronger than ever" as the "Die Hard" star battles frontotemporal dementia.

"Today marks our 15th wedding anniversary! And today, I can make a choice. I can wallow in sorrow or I can celebrate it," Emma shared.

Earlier this month, Emma, who announced she will be releasing a book in 2025 about her experiences as a caregiver to her husband, spoke out about the misinformation she's recently seen surrounding Bruce's condition.

"It’s Sunday morning and I’m triggered. I just got clickbaited. I’m just scrolling minding my own business and just saw a headline and got clickbaited that had to do with my own family," she wrote. "The headline basically says there is no more joy in my husband.

"Now, I can just tell you that is far from the truth," she continued. "I need society and whoever’s writing these stupid headlines to stop scaring people. Stop scaring people to think that once they get a diagnosis of some kind of neurocognitive disease that that’s it, it’s over. Let’s pack it up, nothing else to see here. We’re done.

"No. It is the complete opposite of that, OK? 100%. There is grief and sadness, there’s all of that. But you start a new chapter. And that chapter is filled. Let me just tell you what it is. It’s filled with love, it’s filled with connection. It’s filled with joy, it’s filled with happiness. That’s where we are."
