Growing up in the spotlight comes with its challenges. When a child is born into a family with famous parents, exposure to the limelight comes at an early age.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, a power couple of the nineties, have three daughters together. Now adults with careers of their own, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah Willis share something in common besides their famous parents—they share a similar status of sobriety.
In three separate Instagram posts, each of Willis and Moore’s daughters revealed that they are recovering, although they do not mention addiction recovery specifically. The sisters, who range in age from 23-28, have candidly acknowledged their struggles to their nearly one million followers combined.
Each post took place within the month of July.
The oldest daughter, Rumer, won the 20th season of Dancing with the Stars, and has since found success in television and music. She now celebrates six months of sobriety.
“It’s not something I planned on but after the long journey of getting here I can honestly say I have never been more proud of myself in my entire life,” said Rumer.
Tallulah, an artist, shared her sentiments, stating that, “[…]staying sober has been far and beyond the most important thing I’ve done in my wee 23 years.”
Scout’s photo included a snapshot of her one-year sobriety keychain. She celebrated her sober anniversary on June 17, marking a year with no “filters, no chemical relaxation, no short cuts.”
Scout also shared a video with her post—a song, called “Goodbye,” that she wrote about her journey to recovery.
The sisters seem to be each other’s biggest supporters. Rumer reposted Tallulah’s photo, adding the caption, “So proud of you sister.”
With so many accomplishments within the same year, the family has much to be grateful for.
I will be the first one to say I’m not perfect and I mess up sometimes and every once in a while I get it right but I wanted to share this because I am really proud of myself. Yesterday I celebrated 6 Months of Sobriety. It’s not something I planned on but after the long journey of getting here I can honestly say I have never been more proud of myself in my entire life. Thank you all for the love and support and remember to be gentle with yourself 😊
I’m not always good at celebrating myself, and reallllllllly shy about doing it publicly, but honestly I am so fucking proud of myself for this one. Last month on June 17 marked one year of being fully present with ma self, no filters, no chemical relaxation, no short cuts. I am meetingthe best version of myself every day 🦑💗🦑💗 Here’s a song I wrote about it last summer called goodbye 🌚
3 years ago I was a malnourished string bean with aches that echoed throughout my soul. However the internal cries to tend my most blistered and deep wounds repeatedly fell on deaf ears. I did not value myself, my life or my body and as such I was constantly punishing for not being enough. Self annihilation fueled with medicating left me a shell, and the world on mute. I was hoisted from my hole, (one so deep I was certain we were nearing the Earths magma core) on the backs of powerful human beings that I will forever be indebted too, and on that day my life was gifted back to me. I love the girl in this picture, I cry for her and I mourn her lost years. She is inside of me always and I must never let her slip too far. I don’t push any agenda, I can only speak for my path and staying sober has been far and beyond the most important thing I’ve done in my wee 23 years. 🎉🎂🎈
