Demi Moore shares rare family photos to celebrate daughter Rumer Willis' birthday

Demi Moore shares rare family photos to celebrate daughter Rumer Willis' birthday

The Hollywood star paid tribute to her daughter Rumer Willis on her birthday

Demi Moore celebrated the birthday of her daughter Rumer Willis yesterday (16 August) by posting a series of family photos of the times in their life together.

Moore married fellow Hollywood star Bruce Willis in 1987 and a year later, they welcomed their daughter Rumer into the world.

Now 35 years later, Rumer has just celebrated her first birthday since the birth of her own first child and her mom thought it was the perfect time to bring out some of the family photos.

Paying tribute to her daughter, Moore took to Instagram to share a few snaps that had been taken of her and her daughter over the years.

There were pictures of a young Rumer standing by a birthday cake about as large as she was, while other pictures showed the mother and daughter hugging.

Moore also posted pictures of her at her daughter's side on the day Rumer gave birth to a child of her own.

There was a snap of them holding hands during the day and another image of mother, daughter and newborn baby relaxing together as part of the post.

Moore wrote: "My life changed the day you were born. You brought a depth, meaning, and purpose to my existence along with an understanding of love that I had never known.

"Now here you are my baby, with your own baby, bringing even greater meaning, magic, and love into all of our lives. So proud of you."

"Happy Birthday Ru! Happy New Year! Happy Celebration of Life! I Love You!"

Rumer's response to her mother's sweet birthday post was found in the comments and it was every bit as heartfelt as her mom's message to her.

She said: "Oh mama I love you so. Knowing what it takes to help bring a soul into this world gives it a whole new meaning for me.

"I always thought this was my day but I know now it has always been ours. Happy birthday mama."

Willis' partner, Derek Richard Thomas, also joined in with her birthday tributes on Instagram, posting a picture of her and words of praise.

"Rue, I love you I’m grateful for you in my life, I hope you have a wonderful birthday, it is my joy to celebrate you today," he wrote.

"I’m so glad you were born and came into my life. I’ll never be the same, thank you for making me a father and helping me grow as a human. You are kind, thoughtful, sexy and wise. Can’t wait for what the future brings, Happy Birthday!!!"
