They jetted off to Vegas to see boxing matches when he had a weekend free from filming and he proposed while walking to the gambling tables. They both wanted kids and a family and shared a vision that they had missed out on something wonderful in their own childhoods. So they tied the knot in Vegas and Demi got pregnant on her wedding night in November at the Golden Nugget with an elaborate second wedding ceremony to follow on the soundstages at Warner Bros.
Life was rosy in Idaho until Demi lost all the weight she had gained during her pregnancy plus eight pounds in 12 weeks and was feeling fearless enough to host an upcoming SNL show. A movie offer with Robert De Niro and Sean Penn followed and Demi thought maybe this was the time to trust herself as an actor. He didn't want her involved in anything outside of the family.
Moore and Willis met, got married and became pregnant within four months of meeting in November pictured at their wedding. She reveals in new memoir that her marriage suffered when her career took off because Bruce wanted her home with the family pictured with daughter Rumer. Moore writes that being a mother was the only place she really felt comfortable with herself as she battled drug addiction and eating disorders.
Her professional life took off with her next film, Ghost, but at the expense of her relationship.

They had moved quickly through the romance, marriage and first child that gave him family and grounding, 'but he also craved excitement and novelty', Demi writes. Demi told him to 'go' but he couldn't commit to breaking up the marriage or to Demi. She visited him on the set but sensed he had had affairs and he was still furious with her for going back to work. They made a pact not to be separated for more than two weeks and to spend four days together but Demi violated that with a film offer. Plus, telling me, ''I don't know if I want to be married'' is not exactly the way to my heart', she writes.
But when he got back to Idaho, she got pregnant again and he was over the moon. Demi posed for the famous Vanity Fair cover revealing her very pregnant body while the text portrayed her as 'selfish, egotistical and pampered' diva, a perception that followed her for years with ill will. The relationship seemed to be back on track and they tried to do their films at the same time so they could be together during down time. Each time Demi would become pregnant, it seemed like the relationship with Bruce was back on track, but that would always eventually derail pictured with daughter Rumer.

Demi lost the weight she had gained during her pregnancy plus eight pounds in 12 weeks and was feeling fearless enough to host Saturday Night Live. Demi posed for this famous Vanity Fair cover revealing her very pregnant body while the text portrayed her as 'selfish, egotistical and pampered' diva. Demi was sick during her third pregnancy and Bruce took care of Rumer, who was five and Scout, not yet two. He was just as excited about a third child and had agreed on the name Tallulah. Demi joined Bruce in New York on a film shoot and was advised to stop exercising by doctors in the city who were monitoring her pregnancy because the baby was too small and not gaining weight.
Back in Idaho, her own doctor induced labor at full term. They had to get her out fast because something wasn't right. Tallulah Belle weighed only four pounds, twelve ounces when she took her first breath. I felt an almost primal need to protect them: I would have taken a bullet for them, robbed a bank', writes the actress. She was trying to hold onto her marriage, her career, her exercise and diet regimens but the only place she felt comfortable was being a mother. Demi never realized she could talk to Bruce about her weight fixation — starving herself, her manic exercise regimen.
She suddenly just stopped going to the gym in their house and decided to eat when she was hungry — and she was okay. When she thought about her marriage, she sensed it was only prolonged by their frequent separations. Demi later found love with Ashton Kutcher, who loved her children, before it ended in another divorce.

Pictured together in The actress was a stay at home mom with the girls, while Bruce was the breadwinner - though they were no longer married. She writes that she and Bruce felt more connected than before the divorce. They both adored their girls but Demi believed Bruce was ambivalent about their marriage and that tormented him. They spent little time together as a couple before becoming parents and then Demi did eight films in two years.

This was the same thing she had experienced with her mother and she coped by becoming self-sufficient. Bruce recognized her defensive armor and that 'there was no room inside it for someone else'. He felt locked out by my self-reliance which hurt him in ways he couldn't face and fed his ambivalence about our marriage', Demi writes. Demi became the stay-at-home mom and Bruce was the breadwinner although no longer her husband. Demi and the girls all slept together in the master bedroom in Idaho and Demi finally found the time to get out on the property and play with the girls.
She was making up for playtime she had missed out on in her own very dysfunctional childhood.
Demi Moore spills on her whirlwind romance and quick marriage to 'controlling' Bruce Willis
Instead of going to a therapist when they split up, she bought toys and that became an addiction - which doll had the sweetest expression, the eyes with the ideal spacing. Demi's daughters gave her an ultimatum when she fell into drug addiction after her divorce with Kutcher: Rehab or we won't speak to you. Once she cleaned up the girls and Bruce Willis reunited with her.
She immersed herself in self-help books, met with a Tibetan monk, a shaman, a Cherokee medicine woman, even trekking in Bhutan. She would need it to survive her relationship with Ashton Kutcher that burned out quickly and almost took her with it when she fell back into drinking to keep up with him and feel like a 'fun, normal girl'. She had come into the relationship after having a big life with a big ex and three children.
She quickly got pregnant but miscarried at 42 and blamed it on the booze and cigarettes. No treatment from intrauterine insemination to in vitro-fertilization to daily shots in the stomach and butt every morning and night worked. She wasn't getting pregnant again and reluctantly agreed to threesomes to keep him happy, she claims. When that didn't work and he began having affairs with younger women, she drank more. Her girls gave her an ultimatum: Rehab or we won't speak to you.
