Married since 2009 to Bruce Willis, Emma Heming is not as well-known as her superstar husband. The couple recently made headlines with the announcement of their pregnancy. With a new baby on the way, many people are asking: who is the second Mrs. Willis?
Emma is a model and designer. She has also appeared in the films "The Comebacks" and "Perfect Stranger," but has decided that she does not want to be an actress. She has modeled for such brands as GAP and Victoria's Secret and has been very successful. One of her most publicized modeling campaigns was a racy lingerie ad for La Senza. Despite her career achievements, Heming has stayed largely out of the public eye and remains relatively unknown.
The couple were married on the Turks and Caicos islands in the Caribbean after dating for a year. The ceremony was small and took place outside of Willis's property. Since the wedding was non-binding, they also held a civil ceremony in California.
The stunning beauty was born in Malta. She was an only-child raised by a single mother. Although the "Die Hard" actor already has three children from his marriage to Demi Moore, this will be Emma's first child. Friends credit the model for balancing Bruce out. "Emma is unbelievably calm and undemanding. She has made Bruce incredibly centered," said Willis's longtime friend Robert Kraft.
Although Bruce swore he would never marry again, he found romance with the captivating brunette. Before finding his new love, he told reporters "If I ever tell you I'm gonna get married again, punch me in the face." Although she was engaged to someone else when they first met, they couple eventually found themselves in each others arms. (Heming's engagement ended on its own before she began dating Bruce.) Emma cites her husband's humor as a main source of her attraction saying "I'm laughing from morning till night with him."
The couple can expect their new bundle of joy sometime after the new year. Bruce's rep told the press, "the couple are overjoyed with the news and look forward to welcoming the newest addition into their family."
