Bruce, 54, admits it may seem unusual that he and his ex remain so close, but says of their big, happy family, “We’ve become like a tribe…. Demi and I made a choice to put the kids first, and we’re really lucky that it turns out we all have fun together. I still love her, and I have a lot of respect for how she lives her life.”
When his 13-year marriage to Demi ended in 2000 Bruce reveals that he didn’t expect to find love again, saying that he had a “very dismal view of my chances at romance.” Until he met Emma, 32.
“I hear so many in relationships say, ‘I just need a couple of days away, or even an hour away. But I don’t want to be away from Emma at all,” Bruce reveals. “It’s the most singular relationship I’ve ever had in my life.”
It sounds as though his new bride has been welcomed with open arms by the “tribe.”
“I met them very early on, and I was definitely nervous because I’d never dated a man who had children and I wanted to be really sensitive to that,” says Emma. “But I’ve been really blessed because from day one it’s been comfortable and fun.”
