Jason Momoa loves his wife. OK, ideally all people with wives feel that way, but Jason Momoa really loves his wife.
The mere mention of her name turns the 6-foot-4 man into a complete puddle, and he’s proved it on many occasions. The two have enjoyed a long and beautiful relationship. They first met after being introduced by a mutual friend in 2005 and have been together since.
The rest of the world may not be happy with it, but by and large, they get it. Lisa Bonet has been a unique beauty since the moment she first graced our screens as Denise Huxtable in 1984. In the years since, she’s proven to have an equally captivating personality.
Lisa and Jason have two children, 12-year-old Lola and 10-year-old Nakoa-Wolf, in addition to Lisa’s older daughter, 30-year-old Zoë Kravitz. Jason talks about their unique family dynamic and the chaotic life they lead in a fascinating interview with Esquire, where the star also fesses up about just how long he’s been in love with Lisa.
Jason Momoa is a megastar at this moment. The Game of Thrones actor turned Aquaman is one of the most in-demand actors out there. His physical appeal coupled with his charisma and heart of gold is the perfect formula to make him everyone’s favorite.
Of course, Jason is taken — and not by just anybody. He’s married to Lisa Bonet as of 2017, although the couple has been together and committed since 2005. In a new interview with Esquire, he talks about their marriage and his adoration for his lady.
In the interview, it’s noted that while Jason has a tremendous physical presence, he isn’t the scary Dothraki savage that helped him rise to fame. He’s a softie, rather — a man who enjoys taking bubble baths, cuddling with his pets, and fawning over his wife.
Jason shares a lot of his day-to-day life online, being a huge user of Instagram Stories. Lisa and their relationship is not part of that, however. “She’s very, very, very private,” he explained. “I’m the opposite, like, Come on in!“
As the conversation shifted to Lisa, he openly admitted that he regards her as his “dream girl.” She was “literally my childhood crush,” Jason said, blushing. The sight of someone with such an intimidating presence blushing isn’t one you often see, but he can’t help it when it comes to her.
“I mean, I didn’t tell her that. I didn’t let her know I was a stalker until after we had the kids,” he admitted. The couple shares 12-year-old daughter Lola and 10-year-old son Nakoa-Wolf, in addition to Lisa’s daughter, 30-year-old Zoë Kravitz.
Jason has joked about it before, most famously during a 2017 episode of The Late Late Show With James Corden. “Ever since I was like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one,'” he joked.
“I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you,'” the actor then joked, using the same term he used with Esquire in the more recent interview. He never actually imagined it could happen.
Of their meeting, he said, “We just happened to be in the right place at the right time.” The two were introduced at a New York City jazz club. “I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had huge dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks.”
“I literally turned around … and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’ I turned around to my friend and I [pretends to scream],” he continued. “I had … fireworks going off inside, man. I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”
Lisa talked about that night herself in a 2018 interview with PorterEdit. “I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met,” she explained, according to Entertainment Tonight.
“In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do,” she continued. “He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!” She also gushed about her husband.
“Jason embodies a rare form of masculinity in this day and age – he’s a leader; he’s generous. Just in terms of charisma, physique, the right use of power, responsibility, work ethic, you can go down the line,” she marveled.
Jason and Lisa share a beautiful bond, an even more incredible blended family, and all the happiness in the world. They admire each other in their humanity while sharing deep emotional and spiritual connections, making for an incredible relationship and two very happy people.
