Here Are Some Of The Most Out-There Facts About Jason Momoa’s Hollywood Romance

With their striking good looks and painfully cool personas, it’s little wonder that Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are firm favorites with celebrity watchers. However, the intrigue in the couple goes far beyond their appearances or personalities. That’s because their romance happens to be full of fascinating facts.

For most of us, Jason Momoa will always be the brooding hunk Khal Drogo from the show Game of Thrones. For two seasons, the Hawaiian-born actor captivated us with his portrayal of the Dothraki leader and his unlikely romance with Daenerys Targaryen. However, it seems that his real life relationship could also be television-worthy.

Momoa has been with actress Lisa Bonet since 2005. The television star is perhaps best known for her role as Denise Huxtable in The Cosby Show, which ran from 1984 to 1992. And when the pair first met, it was pretty much love at first sight – for Momoa anyway.

The would-be couple were first introduced by a mutual friend. However, the meeting was a long time coming for Momoa, who had dreamed of dating Bonet since he was just a kid. In fact, he first fell for her through his television screen.

During an appearance on the The Late Late Show with James Corden in November 2017, Momoa revealed, “Ever since I was, like, eight years old and I saw her on the TV, I was, like, ‘Mommy, I want that one.’ I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life, and I’m going to get you.’”

Continuing, the Game of Thrones star added, “I’m a full-fledged stalker. I didn’t tell her that until we had two babies; otherwise, it’d be creepy and weird. But yeah, [I’d] just always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always.”

With that in mind, Momoa must have been over the moon that the fates, and a friend, had intervened to make his dream come true. “We just happened to be in the right place at the right time,” he said. “I actually had dreaded my hair for her.”

He added, “I had dreadlocks; she had dreadlocks. I literally turned around, and I see her, and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’” With those two little words, Momoa was in awe. “I had f***ing fireworks going off inside, man,” he said. “I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”

And if there were any doubts in Momoa’s mind at this point they were soon erased by a visit to New York’s Cafe 101. “She ordered a Guinness, and that was it,” the actor revealed. “I beyond love Guinness. We had Guinness and grits, and the rest is history.”

Recalling that very same encounter, in March 2018 Bonet told Net-A-Porter’s Porter magazine, “In that moment, love came, and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do. He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!”

Soon Momoa and Bonet’s romance blossomed into a fully-fledged relationship. However, Momoa was not the first celebrity whom Bonet had been linked with. On her 20th birthday, the actress eloped to Las Vegas where she wed singer Lenny Kravitz. Their marriage lasted from 1987 until 1993 and produced the couple’s daughter Zoë Kravitz.

So, when Momoa got together with Bonet, he became a stepfather to the now 17-year-old Zoë. But the actor must have taken to parenthood well. You see, in 2007 the couple welcomed another daughter named Lola Iolani and a son called Nakoa-Wolf just over a year later.

When it comes to raising their children, the couple arguably have something of an unorthodox approach. The family live on a five-acre ranch in Southern California. And, perhaps inspired by Bonet’s 60s-era hippy upbringing, their home is television-free and contains just the one computer.

Instead, Momoa and Bonet’s children are encouraged to play outside and explore their own creativity. And so far, the couple’s holistic approach to parenthood has appeared to have the desired effect on their young children.

Bonet explained, “One of my proudest moments as a mom was when someone asked Nakoa-Wolf, ‘Well, what is life for?’ And he said, without missing a beat, ‘To protect Mother Earth, of course. But God also wants to play with Mother Earth.’ I just thought, ‘My work is done!’”

Another thing that some people might find unconventional is Momoa and Bonet’s friendship with her ex-husband Kravitz. They even enjoy Thanksgiving together, much to Bonet’s joy. “It’s fantastic. It’s full-on family love,” she said.

Momoa and Bonet spent 12 years together before eventually tying the knot in October 2017. Celebrating the news during his appearance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Momoa simply said, “Finally, man.”

However, if Momoa and Bonet had had their way, they might not have publically acknowledged their marriage at all. After tying the knot during a low-key ceremony in Topanga Canyon, California, the couple had intended to keep the news secret. However, word soon spread.

In November 2017 Momoa told Entertainment Tonight how annoyed he was that news of his secret wedding got out. “I thought it would have stayed that way, but some a**hole leaked it, and I will find you,” he said.

However, while some fans went crazy about Momoa and Bonet’s secret ceremony, it doesn’t seem to have been much of a big deal for the couple. “You know what, I’ve been married to my wife for 12 years,” Momoa said. “It’s just a gathering of our families and celebrating our love.”
