Bruce Willis appeared in good spirits as he appeared in a video uploaded to his wife Emma Heming’s Instagram on Saturday.

The 67-year-old star was captured holding hands with the couple’s daughter Evelyn, eight, as she practiced rollerskating in their garage.

Bruce revealed last month that he’s been diagnosed with the degenerative brain condition aphasia and will be stepping away from the spotlight to focus on his health.

In the touching Instagram footage, Evelyn – who celebrated her eighth birthday on Thursday – focused on keeping her balance while her dad kept a watchful eye on her.

As a precaution, Evelyn wore pink knee pads and a yellow helmet to go along with her shorts and t-shirt.

Always one to bring humor to a situation, the Die Hard legend decided to break out into dance as he continued to hold on tightly to his baby girl’s hand.

Despite his ailing health, the father of five looked fit as ever while shimmying for the camera in blue jeans and a grey t-shirt.

Being the proud mother of two of Bruce’s girls, Emma eagerly revealed the birthday festivities that occurred this week in celebration of Evelyn.

’14 hours, 27,000-ish steps, 14-ish miles of PURE birthday fun! But who’s counting,’ captioned Emma, who uploaded a video montage of herself, Evelyn and her eldest daughter Mabel Ray, 10, enjoying the Disneyland Park in Anaheim.

Evelyn and Mabel flashed big beaming smiles at their mom’s camera as they shifted from one ride to another. 

Bruce did not appear to be in attendance for the family’s Disney day.

Five weeks ago, Bruce’s blended family issued a joint statement, announcing that he would be ‘stepping away from the career that has meant so much to him.’

The statement revealed he ‘has been experiencing some health issues and has recently been diagnosed with aphasia, which is impacting his cognitive abilities.’ 

In conclusion, it read: ‘This is a really challenging time for our family and we are so appreciative of your continued love, compassion and support. We are moving through this as a strong family unit, and wanted to bring his fans in because we know how much he means to you, as you do to him.’

Along with Mabel and Evelyn, the acclaimed action hero actor also has three daughters: Rumer, 33, Scout, 30, and Tallulah, 28, with his ex-wife, actress Demi Moore.
