Pregnant Rumer Willis says her parents are “so excited” about their first grandchild, while also both proving to be full of parenting advice and knowledge ahead of the birth of her first child.
“[My parents] are so excited. My sisters are so excited, and it’s so fun to be bringing in the first grandkid in our family, especially because we’re such a huge group at this point,” the 34-year-old actress told People.
Willis said her parents, Bruce Willis and Demi Moore, have already started piling on the parenting advice, with their best tip being, “You have no control over anything, and just have a lot of grace with yourself.”
Willis announced she was expecting her first child with boyfriend Derek Richard Thomas back in December, telling the outlet her pregnancy has been “humbling” thus far.

“I have so much reverence and respect for women now. I feel I’ve had an easier time physically than most of my friends,” Willis told the outlet.
“Also, because I’m so excited, even those moments that are challenging, or feel frustrating, I’m just so excited, that always kind of trumps [everything]… But, it’s wild. It’s the wildest experience, even more so than I ever thought of,” the actress said.
