As for Derek, he was a bit more open about his relationship with the actress when he wished her a happy birthday this past summer.

"In the short time we've been together you have filled my life with joy and peace," he wrote Aug. 16.  "Everything is just so easy with you. We sing, we dance, we play and most of all we laugh. Thank you for being you. You're a magical human. I'm so glad you came into my life." 

While the couple hasn't shared the sex of their baby yet, Rumer previously disclosed what her dad Bruce Willis would hope for if she ever chose to have children.


"My dad puts pressure on me," she joked during a November 2020 appearance on The Talk. "Over the quarantine, he was like, 'So I'd like for you to have a son because I need some male energy in this group.' It's a lot of women obviously."

At the time, Rumer maintained that she was waiting to start a family when she felt it was right for her.

"It's important to wait," she added. "I think it's so important not to rush in and have it be about the lust or about, you know, that immediate connection, and building a real foundation."
