Bruce Willis welcomes his fifth daughter, baby girl Evelyn Penn Willis


If I was someone around Demi Moore right now, I would silently pour her a stiff drink and a tissue. Not only is Demi’s last ex-husband expecting a baby with his young fiancée, but Demi’s second ex-husband just welcomed his fifth child. And it’s another girl! Yes, Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming have welcomed their second girl (together), and Bruce’s fifth daughter overall. We have a name too: Evelyn Penn Willis.

Bruce’s baby joy! Bruce Willis and his wife Emma Heming-Willis have welcomed their second daughter together, Us Weekly can confirm. The model, 35, gave birth in Los Angeles on Monday, May 5. Baby Evelyn Penn Willis weighed in at 8lbs, 10oz. Both mom and baby are said to be healthy and doing beautifully.

Us exclusively broke news back in December 2013 that the couple were expecting another bundle of joy. Heming-Willis, who tied the knot with the Die Hard actor, 59, in 2009, debuted her growing belly while shopping at a local farmer’s market in L.A. that month. The pair are already parents to daughter Mabel, 24 months.

He’s “very present and amazing with Mabel,” an insider told Us of Willis at the time. While the second-time mom is “very devoted” and “supportive of him, so when he needs to work she steps up her mommy game.”

What are the thoughts on the name? I like the name Evelyn. Evelyn Penn sounds classy, like a bold, upper class suffragette from the early 1900s. Maybe they’ll call her Eve Willis? And for a nickname, it will be Evie? Cute.

For those of you keeping track at home, Bruce Willis is father to: Rumer, 25, Scout, 22, Tallulah, 19, and now Mabel, 2, and Evelyn, 3 days old. What are the chances of a man having FIVE GIRLS with two different baby mamas? Anyway, I’m including some recent pics of Bruce, Emma and Mabel out and about a few months ago – I don’t think I’ve ever really looked at Mabel’s face. She’s a pretty little girl! And she takes after her mom. I kind of think the Heming-Willis girls might be spared the Willis-face genes.

    Keep trying for that son, Bruce! (Congrats on the new baby – her older sister is adorable!)

  2. lucy2 says:

    Congrats to them. I find it a little funny that after the first round of kids had such unusual names, these two girls have very traditional, even old fashioned names.
    I know a couple of families who had 5 girls and then just gave up and stopped there.

    • Lucybelle says:

      I know a couple families like that. One has 5 girls, the other has 6 girls and they are across the street neighbors! Lots of estrogen in that little area! I also went to school with a girl who now has 6 boys. Blows my mind.

    • JennySerenity says:

      Sort of non-related, but when I saw “Evelyn Penn”, I flinched. For just a nanosecond, my brain mistook it for “Eveleigh Rose” and I threw up in my mouth just a little.

      Best wishes to the burgeoning Willis family.

      Hmm I wonder if men do have a predisposition genetically to produce girls; on my father’s side it’s always all girls and one boy (for the last three generations at least). The males tend to produce females. My father has six girls and one boy with three different women and that makes my brother the last male in the family to have our surname unfortunately.

      • Stoner says:

        The baby’s sex always solely relies on the father since men are the only ones capable of donating a Y chromosome which determines sex.

      • wonderwoman21 says:

        Thanks but I know that and that’s not what I’m wondering. I’m wondering if certain males have a predisposition to produce one sex over the other.

  3. G says:

    I think men control the gender of kids so if he has a strong tendency to make girls he can make them with anyone. But they seem solid and he seems like a really hands on dad despite his age (Cough -Clooney!)

    • Jay says:

      Men can’t have “strong tendencies to make girls.” There’s a 50/50 shot and he just happened to make girls.

      • G says:

        Wrong, there has been studies that indicate that men carry a genetic tendency to favor boys, girls, or both evenly based on their genetic makeup which determines the X/Y makeup of their sperm.

      • holly hobby says:

        It’s true the sperm for one sex or the other are faster that’s why some people have multiples of one gender.

    • Dawn says:

      Yes it is true that sperm makes the decision on what sex the baby will. And Bruce is just a girl making stud it appears! I think though since 60 is right around the corner for him he may want to end the baby making. But that’s just me.

  4. blue marie says:

    I like the name, congrats to them.

  5. Hannah says:

    I really like Penn as a middle name, it’s cool. Congrats, Bruce!

  6. LoveLee85 says:

    I find it weird that people assumes he wants a son or feels bad for him that he has 5 daughters. Lol My Dad had told my Mom from day one of dating he did NOT want a son, only daughters. (He was hell on a wheels growing up and said my Mom was so beautiful/sweet it would be a sin to not have two just like her!) When they were pregnant they only ever picked girl names, too! Also, they NEVER found out the sex until birth. Lol! Dad got his way, two beautiful, healthy happy girls. And they stopped!

    I say CONGRATULATIONS to him!! Seems like a great Dad.

    • Froggy says:

      I agree. I have all boys and people almost always assumed we were going to have more to try for a girl.
      I only ever wanted healthy babies.

      • LoveLee85 says:

        AMEN….someday all I want is a healthy/happy baby. I don’t care boy or girl. The fact that it’s unknown makes life a little more excited….as I’m getting married this October and will be starting that chapter of life soon! 🙂

      • holly hobby says:

        I have all boys too. My MIL keeps pushing me to try for another one in hopes of a girl. Now why the heck would I want to do that? I’m sure the third one will be a boy, as well as the 4th etc.

        Happy with my healthy boys. The baby maker is closed for business.

    • Cassandra_J says:

      My dad was the same way. He told my mom he wanted three girls and thats what he got. They eventually adopted my brother because she really wanted a boy but couldnt have any more children.

    • PunkyMomma says:

      Bruce (while married to Demi) had a bet with Arnold Schwarzenegger as to who would have a son first.

      • holly hobby says:

        That would be Stallone. He had two boys from his first marriage so the bet is moot.

      • PunkyMomma says:

        @holly – Sly’s sons were born before Rocky. I’m pretty sure the bet was between Bruce and Arnold. Their kids are closer in age. Rumer was born in 1988 and Katherine in 1989.

  7. Falula says:

    Well before having any kids, the chance of having five girls is 1 in 32, but since he already has four daughters, the chance of having a fifth was 1 in 2. It’s not a “tendency to have” situation. They are independent events.

    /math teacher soapbox.

    • GiGi says:

      I’d agree if we were talking about plane accidents or other independent events, but when you bring sperm into the equation (and why shouldn’t we?)… some men’s sperm are weighted more in one direction or the other – so I’d think figuring the actual odds would be impossible to compute. Some men are just predisposed to produce more “girl” or more “boy” sperm.

    • L says:

      Yup for each pregnancy the odds are still going to be 50/50-genetics doesn’t go on ‘what did you have last time or the time before’. Even if you have more girl sperm than boy sperm-the odds are still going to be 50/50 for each time.

      Other random fact- Sex is decided by the individual sperm that fertilizes the egg. Boy sperm are fast swimmers, but die of quickly. Girl sperm are less speedy, but live longer.

      • Cali says:

        False! As already stated it depends on genetics and some men have more girl juice; not all men are created equal.

    • Dee says:

      Well that’s not true. If you simply looked it up you would know, as other have stated, certain men are more predisposed to produce one gender over the other. More to the point, you can’t just blanketly apply mathematics to genetics and except it to fall in line. Very few things in the field of genetics are so absolute.

      • Falula says:

        From what I’ve read (admittedly it’s limited as I’m not a geneticist), even if there is a tendency for a man to produce one type of sperm over another, the amount it varies is not statistically significant when thinking in terms of hundreds of millions of sperm, so that the percentage may be more like 51/49 rather than a true 50/50, but nothing that would suggest that a man would have very little chance of having a baby of a certain sex. If anyone has more info than I do I’d be happy to read up – I was saying it more as a knee-jerk reaction to ignorant statements like “I don’t even think I can make girls” and such that I’ve actually heard men say, not to say that a slight skew isn’t possible.

  8. Hiddles forever says:

    Congrats to them! 🙂

  9. Ellen says:

    Congrats to them all — new babies are a blessing, and they seem pretty stable considering how nuts Bruce has gotten on his promo tours.

    (It looks to me like Mabel will get the Willis jawline as she grows up.)

  10. Sarah says:

    The “Willis” face genes? I think we may need to be blaming Demi for the Moore/Willis girls at this point.

    • TG says:

      I agree at the very least they are both equally to blame. I think for sure though that Demi Moore is proof positive that plastic surgery cannot outrun genetics. Your kids are going to get all those ugly features you paid thousands of dollars to erase on yourself.

  11. Amanda_M87 says:

    I really like the names of Bruce’s two younger daughters. Much nicer than the names of the older girls.

  12. serena says:

    Congrats! I love the name Evelyn Penn! He really carries strong genetic for having girls, but maybe if he had another, after 5 girls, there’s a high chance it could be a boy.

  13. Jen34 says:

    Congratulations, Bruce.

    But before anyone proclaims his 2 younger girls to be genetically blessed, i want to point out that the older 3 were beautiful children, too. Just saying.

  14. ann says:

    He’s too old to be fathering children. Seems like girls mostly inherit their fathers’ looks so, yes, they’re doomed, too.

  15. Renee28 says:

    I wonder what type of relationship the older girls have with their sisters. I know someone who struggled with having a 10-12 year age gap with her siblings. I can’t imagine how hard it is when your sibling is young enough to be your child.

  16. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Their daughter looks like she could be Courtney Kardashians son’s sister.

  17. edith says:

    I read somewhere that the shorter the penis, the more chances are that you are getting a girl. don’t ask me how, it might me bs but I always think about that when I see families with only girls and no boys.

  18. Evelyn says:

    No good, dirty name thieves!
    Congrats to mom and baby!

  19. (Not CDAN) Violet says:

    Mabel is adorable, but I think she’s going to wind up with her dad’s strong jawline. I hope his youngest takes after her mother. (I’m saying this because his oldest three have all been unhappy with their looks, especially Rumer who has had quite a bit of surgery over the years.)

  20. Shiksa Goddess says:

    So I had to google what he looked like in the 80’s. He was quite handsome. I don’t want to sound rude but lord Jesus, his daughters with Demi, I have no words.

  21. Tessy says:

    The baby’s gender is totally determined by the father, although there are some physical things that can be done that may possibly change the outcome. I think that whichever gender is born is who is meant to be here at this time.

    Of course the woman has historically been blamed for producing girls, old fools like Henry VIII used to do away with their wives for bearing daughters.
