Rumer Willis and her entire family, including parents Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, were captured in a rare family photo after they took a selfie to commemorate Rumer’s performance Monday on Dancing With the Stars.
The 26-year-old actress, who is killing it on DWTS, appeared in the photo in costume with parents Bruce Willis and Demi Moore and sisters Scout Willis and Tallulah Willis.
Bruce Willis and Demi Moore divorced in October 2000, but it is well known that the former couple get along quite well and share a deep love for their kids. They are surely very proud of their first-born, Rumer Willis, as she shows her stuff on DWTS.
Partnered on the ABC reality competition with Val Chmerkovskiy, Rumer Willis is well supported by her family each and every week, as she advances towards the ultimate price — the coveted mirror ball trophy.
On Monday, Bruce Willis also was joined by his new wife, Emma Heming, who was there to cheer on her new step-daughter, Rumer Willis.

An onlooker told Us Weekly the family went crazy after Rumer Willis and Chmerkovskiy’s performance.
“The whole Willis/Moore group was super cute and enthusiastic throughout the whole show. When Rumer did her incredible dance they were all screaming and jumping up and down. Even Bruce was super excited! It was adorable.”
Cheers from the Willis/Moore clan had a really positive effect on Rumer Willis and Chmerkovskiy. Their samba, performed to “Poor Unfortunate Souls” from The Little Mermaid, scored the extremely high score of 39 out of 40, with three of the four judges dolling out perfect 10s.
Rumer said following the performance that she was not only thrilled with the performance, but loved taking on a new persona.
“It was so awesome. I don’t think there are many times in your life that you just get to be evil and fierce and just have an awesome eel next to you.”
During last week’s DWTS appearance, Rumer revealed that she was bullied as a child, which had a very negative effect on her during her adolescent years, as the BBC reported.
“When I was a teenager I was super awkward. I don’t think I really felt comfortable in my body or with how I looked and people were nasty.”
She admitted that being Demi Moore’s daughter and looking more like dad Bruce Willis didn’t help matters either.
“My mom, who is one of the most stunning women I’ve ever met and who everyone was comparing me to, saying that you look more like your very masculine father than your beautiful mom.”

Her moving confession brought everyone to tears, including her mom, Demi Moore.
“Here are my flaws and it’s OK. I’m still me and I’m still beautiful and it doesn’t matter.”
Rumer said it was her family, especially the advice of her siblings, that ultimately led her to become comfortable in her own skin.
What do you all think? Will Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy win the coveted mirror ball trophy?
