All across the world, people are locked down as a result of the coronavirus, and celebrities are no different. Take Demi Moore and Bruce Willis, for example.

Yep, the former couple are quarantined together in Idaho with their family, posting a picture together in matching onesies.

Demi captioned the picture "family bonding", although still no explanation on why she owns a giant fork and spoon...

Anyway! Since then, a bunch of pictures have found their way online of the Willises/Moores enjoying some quality time together.

They even have a book club going on!

So, all in all and despite the circumstances, everybody seems to be having a pretty nice time at home.

But eyebrows were raised when people first heard that Bruce and Demi were locking down together, especially considering Bruce's wife, Emma Willis, as well as their daughters, Mabel Ray and Evelyn Penn, appeared to be nowhere in sight.

However, Demi and Bruce's daughter, Scout Willis, recently explained the situation, revealing that the Die Hard actor had originally planned to meet Emma and their kids in Idaho so they could all be locked down together.

Speaking on the Dopey podcast, Scout said: "My stepmom was supposed to come up here too with my little sisters — but my younger sister, who is now about to be 6 years old, at a park, had never gotten the talk about not fucking with hypodermic needles that she found, so she actually tried to poke her shoe with it and poked her foot."

While waiting for test results to come back from the doctor, Bruce and Emma decided that he would go ahead to Idaho and she'd follow. However, neither had anticipated how travel would be affected due to the coronavirus.

"My stepmom had to be in LA, waiting to get the results from taking her to the doctor," Scout said. "So my dad came up here early, and then travel got crazy. So my stepmom stayed in LA with my little sisters."

Speaking about the family dynamic now that they're all locked down together, Scout said it was "really funny and cute" seeing her parents living under the same roof again.

She said: "They're both such nerdy, adorable '90s parents in a small town where they chose to have their kids and not be in LA. It's been pretty cute."

And, as Scout pointed out, it's a trip down memory lane for the family — Bruce and Demi had settled down in Hailey, Idaho, back in the late ’80s to escape the chaos of Hollywood.

As for Emma, Mabel, and Evelyn, Scout didn't say if they'd be joining the rest of the family in the near future. However, Emma left a string of heart emojis under a picture of them all, which Demi replied to.

It's fun to see celebs are also using apps like Houseparty to keep in touch with each other!

Meanwhile, the couple recently celebrated their 11-year anniversary. Last month, Emma posted a picture of the happy couple on a roller coaster alongside the caption "What a ride kid."

Here's to hoping the whole family can be reunited soon!
