Bruce Willis is a proud girl dad.

The “Die Hard” star’s wife, Emma Heming, posted a sweet picture of the couple in a Father’s Day embrace with their daughters, Mabel, 10, and Evelyn, 8, on Sunday.

“Happy Father’s Day to this fun, loving, generous, big hearted girl dad. We simply adore you,” she captioned her tribute on Instagram.

Willis, who also shares Rumer, 33, Scout, 30, and Tallulah, 28, with his first wife, Demi Moore, was the subject of several Father’s Day posts.

“Daddio. What a privilege it is every day to be your daughter,” Rumer captioned a throwback picture of herself sitting on her dad’s shoulders.

“I love you so much. You are the coolest cat in town,” she added.

Rumer also shared a slew of old snaps of the recently retired actor to her Instagram Story, including one with his iconic side-smile.

“This smirk is one of my favourite things I got from you,” Rumer wrote.

Tallulah also took to social media to celebrate her A-list father.

“You are by far my coolest friend,” she captioned a photo of the pair.

“You showed me how to love people from a smile, that strength resides in the self possessed goofball, taught me this neat way to make your arms grow and lengthen to hold as many people as possible close and cozy.”

Willis’ blended family came together in March to release a joint statement revealing that he was ending his career after being diagnosed with aphasia.

“To Bruce’s amazing supporters, as a family we wanted to share that our beloved Bruce has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities,” the statement read.

“As a result of this and with much consideration Bruce is stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him. As Bruce always says, ‘Live it up,’ and together we plan to do just that.”

Aphasia, which is a condition that typically occurs after a stroke or a head injury, can affect a person’s ability to speak, write and understand language. Treatment includes speech and language therapies, per the Mayo Clinic.
