Bruce Willis & Emma Heming welcome a baby girl, Mabel Ray Willis

Bruce Willis & Emma Heming

Emma Heming’s pregnancy seemed to go by very quickly. Maybe that was because we barely saw her, and because Bruce Willis’s ex-wife was the one getting all of the attention for the past six months. Last October, Emma and Bruce announced that they were expecting their first child together, and now Emma has given birth… to a girl! Bruce and his girls… that man will never get a son, will he? Newborn daughter Mabel Ray Willis was welcomed into this world yesterday in LA. Everybody sounds happy and healthy:

Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Hemming welcomed a baby girl, Mabel Ray Willis, Sunday in Los Angeles, Willis’s rep confirms to PEOPLE.

The Die Hard actor and Hemming, a designer-model, “are overjoyed about the newest member of their family. Both mother and baby are healthy and doing beautifully,” says the rep.

Weighing 9 lbs., 1 oz., Mabel Ray is the first child for the couple, who have been married for three years.

Willis has three other daughters, Rumer, Scout, and Tallulah, with his ex-wife, Demi Moore.

[From People]

Bruce just turned 57. Emma is 33 years old. Bruce’s oldest child is Rumer, at 23 years old (Scout is 21, Tallulah is 18). My guess is that Emma and Bruce are just going to have the one kid together, but I always forget how young Emma is. She might get pregnant again, you never know. Bruce might have another chance for a son. What I kind of love about Bruce, though, is that he seems happy to be a father of all girls. By all accounts, he’s a doting and stable father.

Anyway, congrats to Emma, Bruce and baby Mabel Ray. In case you’re wondering, Chad Lowe and Dermot Mulroney also have daughters named Mabel. So it’s something of a trend in Hollywood. It’s such an old-fashioned name! What’s next? “Ethel”? Maple Bacon?

    Mabel: Mothers Always Bring Extra Love–remember, from Mad About You?

    That’s cute. Good for them. I’ve always liked Bruce.

  3. Hipocricy says:

    Congrats to them !

    Hope the little one looks exactly like her mum.

  4. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    So I says to Mabel, I says.

  5. Melbeezy says:

    I will always think of the name Mabel as ‘Mothers Always Bring Extra Love’ 🙂

  6. brin says:

    Congrats to them….Emma is gorgeous, let’s hope little Mabel takes after her!

  7. says:

    Congrats to them! But the b!tch in me wants to know: is she another little potato head?

  8. mln76 says:

    Congrats here’s hoping she didn’t inherit ‘the chin’ especially with a name like Mabel.

  9. HAHAHA says:

    I want to add that while everyone was scrutinizing the age gap between demi and Ashton we totally forgot how this one is way more shocking!!Gosh Emma was only 10 the first time he was a father!!he really looks like her dad that not just an expression!! shocking!

    Besides the shock welcome to this world little baby!

    • Jayna says:

      I know. Just the remarks on the age difference alone (not their behavior) and nothing directed towards her ex disgusts me.

      • cody says:

        Congratulations to them –
        but I just realized the large age difference between the two of them. Gossip sites talk about the age difference of George and Stacy, Demi and Ashton, Alex Baldwin and Hilaria, Harvey Weinstein and Georginia, J-lo and Casper, here is another couple for that category.

    • Tapioca says:

      It was mentioned at the time of their nuptuals that she is a bit of a career golddigger, but then she is more of a blank slate than Ashton, who EVERYBODY – except Demi, obvs – knew was a first rate douchebag from the off.

      People are more accepting of age-gap relationships if both parties seem like tolerable human beings, I guess…

      • HAHAHA says:

        I guess too!LOL!

        But I suspect more sexism underlying in this pattern: people make it more a fuss when the woman is the oldest, they don’t bat a lash when it’s the man even if he can be the father of his companion. Sadly…

      • Alexis says:

        Sexism is a biggie. Of the Hollywood age-gap couples with an older woman, only Mariah and Nick Cannon seem to be able to avoid constant references to and mean comments about the age gap. Whereas few celeb couples with an older male get guano about it at all; nobody ever seems to mention that Jolie is ten or so years younger than Pitt, for example.

        And as for Bruce and this new chick, he literally looks like her dad, which is uncomfortable, but whatever floats their boat I guess.

      • Stellax2 says:

        I’m in my second marriage. My husband is 12 years older than I. I’m 40. We definitely have some differences of opinion and taste but we compliment one another. It’s odd when I receive a strange look from a couple, say while we are being seated for dinner, because I’m middle-aged.
        My first husband was two years older than I and that marriage was an abusive, intolerant disaster.

        I do agree that older men vs. younger women seem to garner less attention than the opposite. Sexism is at play in everyday life.

        I congratulate the couple. 9 lbs-she seems tiny, big baby 🙂 I like the name Mabel. It’s old school. I hope her older step sister’s are good to her.

      • Rhea says:

        My hubby is 10 years older than me but I never got any “weird” look from the people when we go outside. I think it’s more about the appearance outside because my hubby doesn’t look like his age, the same with Jolie-Pitt where their age gap doesn’t really obvious like Baldwin or Willis.

    • Candyland says:

      Zowie, he looks like her Pop.

      Is it worse to have an old lady name? Or a freaky one?

  10. T.C. says:

    Congrats to them. Emma has killer legs!

  11. Jayna says:

    Mabel, Hazel, Agnes. What’s wrong with these stars going back to unattractive names.

    • Zelda says:

      I like the old names coming back. Many are pretty, if you just stop thinking of them as old…Stella, Mabel, Astrid, Hazel, Helen, Molly, Dorothy…I think these all could feel fashionable in a vintagey way. Not all of the older names(Agnes? :/), but some work.

      In any case, I far prefer them to the gaggles of Aiden-Jaden-Kaiden-Rayden-Bladen-Potaten-Michael Bayden etc. coming through these days. And any child named Neveah.

      • fancyamazon says:

        I totally agree. Of course I also hate the trend of misspelling names on purpose as well. Why for? It doesn’t make your child more “unique” It only ends up confusing people who have to try and spell it.

      • Zelda says:

        I’ve seen Jessykah and Vynessa. Also Eiden, Emyly, and–I swear– Stefoknee.

        For the love of booking airline tickets over the phone. Don’t do that.

      • MeMyself says:

        I’m a Molly, and my daughters are Lily and Charlotte.
        Granny names all around. 🙂

      • MorticiansDoItDeader says:

        @Zelda, yesterday I meant an Andru 😒

      • Pepper says:

        Exactly Zelda, Hazel and Maybel are gorgeous feminine pretty names.
        “I’ve seen Jessykah and Vynessa. Also Eiden, Emyly, and–I swear– Stefoknee.” Oh my god, that is DISGUSTING! 🙁 It doesn’t surprise me though, there is some real scum out there as ‘parents’. Yeah, brilliant idea. Lets try and be “you neek” and spell it DIFFERENTly. Brilliant idea! Meanwhile the child spends their entire life correcting spelling of their name on legal documents or otherwise, from the normal spelling to their unfortunate spelling. Great thinking, parents! A friend of mine’s brother and his girlfriend named their daughter – I kid you not – Heaven-Leigh. Get it? Heavenly? Yeah, I almost puked too. These people shouldn’t be allowed to breed. Some of the white trash made up ‘names’ children have these days, I cringe and feel so sorry for them. There is no CLASS in the abominations these ‘parents’ call ‘names’. Made up combinations on the spot to form a ‘name’. What is wrong with the tried and true and the classy names that have stood the test of time? Tarny/Tarnee, latesha/letitia/lyteesha, Tamika, Brodie, shoeana, dryden and broden, Trystrum? wtf are some of these parents ON? Meth? Of Thalidomide? Something far strong than acid. Because that is INVENTED words. Those are NOT NAMES! They are attrocities. Abominations. And how smart do you think it is when you spell names like Belynda, Rebbekka/Rebekkah, Tay-Lah, Kyrstee etc? Do parents consider these kids will have to correct the spelling of their name, their entire life? Wtf is wrong with these trashy ‘parents’ to want to inflict these abominations that they call ‘names’ on children? Did their mother go through that much agony in childbirth, that they are punishing the child? Or are the parents just low intellect white trash rubbish?

        PS I had to think twice about mentioning Heaven-Leigh, I didn’t want to give any trailer trash Jerry-Springer type rubbish on here ideas. But that ‘name’ deserves to be an item of ridicule, more so the so-called ‘parents’ (who, in true white trash form, split and dumped the kids on grandparents to raise).

    • Cathy says:

      What’s the matter with the name Agnes? That’s my middle name and I like it just fine. Agnes was my grandmothers name. Of course I’m showing my age here at 49.

      Anyhow, congratulations to the new parents, hope your baby is happy and healthy.

      • Veruca says:

        @Jayna –

        You just named my grandmother, her sister, and her cousin.

        Don’t feel bad, though. They’d agree with you. They all hated their names, especially Grandma (Hazel). I can’t say I blame her. 😀

    • Melissa says:

      I’m with you. Agnes isn’t so bad, but Mabel and Hazel? Awful. Hazel always reminds me of that TV show from the 50s(?) about a maid. That and “witch hazel”, which my Mom always had some gazillion year old bottle of in her bathroom cabinet.

      • MW says:

        Some of the names here, Alice, Charlotte, Molly, Lily, are nice names, even if they are older. But Mabel, Zelda, Bertha, Hazel — for a baby — just seem like a penalty in life, to me. I got stuck with a weird older relative’s name, and my first day of school every year was torture. I was subsequently “called” a diminutive, sort of, but I felt like my real name gave the other kids a reason to smirk before they even knew me, and it affected me. And I always felt like my parents didn’t think about it, or care about giving my name much thought My kids have common-ish names, which they are all happy with.

      • Pepper says:

        Mabel (or Maybelle) is a very pretty name, as is Hazel, which reminds me of gorgeous Hazel eyes and hazelnuts. Both names of very pretty feminine names. Don’t like Anges, Gertrude or Bertha though.

    • Marianne says:

      I love really old names too.

      Names like Charlotte, Audrey, Vivien, Dorothy, Evelyn.

      • Original Lucy says:

        Tina Fey’s daugher is named Alice…I love that!

      • Pepper says:

        Me too. Some of the white trash made up ‘names’ children have these days, I cringe and feel so sorry for them. There is no CLASS in the abominations these ‘parents’ call ‘names’. Made up combinations on the spot to form a ‘name’. What is wrong with the tried and true and the classy names that have stood the test of time?

Or are the parents just low intellect white trash rubbish?

    • Pepper says:

      Mabel and Hazel are VERY ATTRACTIVE, smart and classy names. Far better than the unattractive trashy rubbish invented “names” now that I wouldn’t call a dog. Names these days are disgusting and trashy, and made up, they’re not real names. The older names are far better, more mature, sound nicer and less trailer trashy. I’d rather the older classic names than Shaniqua, Laqueesha, Fantasia (wtf???), Tylor, Tyson, Tay-lah, Rebekkah, Tracey, Stacey, Sky, Kylie, Kylee, Bodie, Brock, Pryce, Bohdan, Tristan etc. The names back then were classic; classy, tasteful and respectful. The names these days are PURE TRASH. I don’t know wtf is wrong with parents these days. They make up names that don’t exist. I wouldn’t even name my dog the TRASH above.

  12. Peachy says:

    Yippee Ki Yay, Mother Emma

  13. someone says:

    With their money you’d think if he really wanted a boy they’d have gone to a specialist and made sure they had a boy. Maybe he prefers having daughters?

    • Zelda says:

      My father really wanted daughters. Just thought they would be fun to raise, and girls always end up Daddy’s little girl…

    • Kat says:

      Maybe he’s just happy to have had healthy children! Why do we persist in thinking men only want or are happy with sons?! My husband adores our daughter, just like my dad adores me and my sister!

  14. Lukie says:

    May she look like her mother…


  15. BerMan says:

    Congratulations !

  16. NYC_girl says:

    I always liked him. For those of you who remember “Moonlighting,” you know what I mean.

  17. Ell says:

    Mabel’s a sweet classic name. The same as other posters, it reminds me of the wonderful Mad about You (praying to the tv gods they will show re-runs in the UK).

    Thank goodness its not another ridiculous hollywood name.

  18. Juno says:

    Hopefully she won’t be as ugly as the other daughters. Poor Emma must be terrified!

    • Deb says:

      Because heaven knows, you are worthless if you aren’t pretty.

      • KattyCat says:

        No, not worthless.

        There’s being “not pretty”, which is perfectly fine… and then then there’s “OMG-is-that-her-face ugly”.

        Nobody wishes that little one to inherit the latter.

  19. Reba says:

    Maybe she’ll be pretty right? Maybe, lets cross fingers ladies!

  20. funnygirl says:

    Emma looks like Bruce’s daughter in the last picture, not his wife! lol

  21. The Truth Fairy says:

    9 pounds?!?! OUCH!!!!!

  22. Marianne says:

    Love the name. So cute. Our theatre company is doing Pirates of Penzance, so that’s what I think of when I hear “Mabel”…lol

  23. SleepyJane says:

    This man is y-sperm sterile.

  24. kristiner says:

    Bruce’s chin is epic. Poor baby girl. This features mixer with a pretty woman just don’t male for a pretty daughter. Bruce isn’t a ugly man but that chin is just unfortunate on a girl.

    Mabel is going to look the most like Tallulah I think. Emma looks like her without the chin.

  25. BELLA says:

    OkI will say it, with all his $$$$$
    why isnt it a boy?

  26. kristipistol says:

    Here’s to hoping that Mabel has Emma’s facial shape

  27. kristipistol says:

    The floor in the first pic brought back memories of Qbert!!!!

  28. Kim says:

    Having a child at 57 is selfish. Its sooooo gross when older men hook up with younger women, esp a woman practically his daughters age, and have a child with them when they are way to old to be fathering any children. Gross!

    • HoustonGrl says:

      I totally agree. I think it can be an ego thing for men, like “look I’m still young, I’ve still got it.” But the reality is that sometimes in life, doors start to close and ships have sailed. It is selfish to have kids in your late 50s.

      My cousin’s father (who was 55 when my cousin was born) died at 72. So my cousin lost his father at 17, right before he started college. On top of that, he had to witness 5+ years of his father’s deteriorating health and lung cancer. Not much fun for a teenager. You can imagine he didn’t much get a chance for a teenage crisis.

      Kids deserve better. You should at least bring a child into the world with the right intentions – and that includes being around.

      • Zelda says:

        Ridiculous. My father died when I was 16. my life is not some wasted tragedy I had a great dad, and the confidence that I can deal with unfortunate circumstances should they arise again.
        Life is different for everyone, and it usually works out fine.

      • leuce7 says:

        I’ve got to agree with Zelda here. My father died when I was five, at the ripe old age of 36 (cancer). I wouldn’t have minded having an older father for 16 years instead of a young one for only five. It’s not the age that matters, it’s the quality of the relationship.

        And who knows, with medical advances and all his money, maybe Bruce Willis will be a spry 90-year-old. Look at Kirk Douglas.

      • HoustonGrl says:

        I don’t think you can compare apples and oranges, particularly if discussing a loaded subject like death or tragedy. And as a parent, you can’t plan for everything and no one is guaranteed health at any age. Nonetheless, I wasn’t calling my cousin’s life a wasted tragedy. I’m saying that the goal should be to bring a child into this world with every advantage. Or at least certainly not a MAJOR disadvantage. There are lessons to be learned, even in tragedy, and overcoming such obstacles can make an individual stronger, more resilient and courageous. But IMO I don’t think it is fair to a child to put a burden like that on them, to anticipate or even expect such a major obstacle, and simply say “well, they’ll pick themselves up by the bootstraps.”

    • Jean2 says:

      No 57 year old male has healthy enough sperm to risk having a child. To do so to keep your much younger spouse happy is reprehensible.

  29. serena says:

    Emma is 35 not 33. not that it matters.

  30. JessCar says:

    Isn’t Lily Allen’s daughter called Ethel?

  31. wonderwoman21 says:

    I’m agree that he’s too old to be fathering children, its selfish and people don’t realize there are potentially very real consequences to being an older parent.

  32. Violet says:

    Yikes, Bruce Willis is going to be 75 when Mabel graduates high school. Personally, I think it’s selfish and irresponsible to have children so late in life.

    Let’s hope Mabel gets her mother’s looks.

    (Incidentally, he’s not aging well. In a few years, he’ll look like his wife’s grandfather not just her dad. )

  33. Annie says:

    Mabel isn’t one of my favorite names but it sure beats Rumer, Scout (freakin’ SCOUT) and Tallulah (yuk, yuk, yuk). Congrats.

  34. Emmy says:

    Dude. Stop bringing potato-headed children into this world. It is cruel. That is all.

  35. beanie says:

    Emma is 35 not 33. Amazing how the press loves to make them as young as possible for the men but the women get all sorts of cradle robbing jokes. Congrats Emma..may you never be poor and may all your golddigging dreams come true. As for Bruce..I used to like you even every last one of your girlfriends were under 25, but you are starting to look like Pepaw for sure now. But…I might still hit it after a 4 or 5 chardonnays. lol!

    • lili-putienne says:

      33 and 35 are quite the same so they don’t really make her younger, tomato/tomatoe

  36. Vesper says:

    I thought Emma Heming was a model? Her face is very ordinary, to say the least.

  37. loveyourwork says:

    Wow. TERRIBLE name.

    Mabel was my grandmother’s name (Ethel is Lily Allen’s daughter’s name).

    Mabel. I bet Rumer and Tallulah are stoked. And Scout. Maybe.

    SCOUT…sounds like a dog. Mabel and Scout…pet names to be sure

    AND she will probably end up with some variation of Willis’ looks – the genes run strong in that one!

    Definitely not a good time. No amount of money can make up for the double-barelled name/chin abomination.
