Rumer Willis is revisiting past memories with her dad Bruce Willis.

On April 1, the 90210 actress, 33, shared a photo on Instagram of herself and sister Scout, 30, as kids with their dad Bruce, whose aphasia diagnosis was made public in March. She captioned the post, “I love you Daddio, to the [moon] and Back. Thank you for teaching me to be so silly. I love laughing with you.”

Rumer, whose mother is Bruce’s ex-wife Demi Moore, received lots of love in the comments section from her Hollywood peers. Emma Willis, Bruce’s wife and the mom of his two youngest daughters Mabel, 9, and Evelyn, 7, shared several heart emojis, as did stars like Evan Rachel Wood and Aaron Paul. Carrie Ann Inaba wrote, “Sending you all so much love. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful photos of your father and your family,” while Thandie Newton simply commented, “Adorbs.”

Following rumors about Bruce’s condition, The Sixth Sense actor’s family formally addressed Bruce’s health in a March 30 social media statement.

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

Following the initial statement, Scout posted a photo with her dad to Instagram, alongside a message thanking everyone for their support.

“Yesterday was so surreal, sharing something so personal. I didn’t know how it would be received, there is always an unknown when sharing out so vulnerably into the world,” she wrote. “I’d hoped for some love and compassion, I truly NEVER could have anticipated the depth and breadth of the love we received as a family yesterday. It kept hitting me yesterday how much love, energy, and prayers were now being sent to my daddio and just humbling me in a way that’s brings tears as I write this. I am so grateful for your love, I’m so grateful to hear about what my papa means to you.”
