Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are one of Hollywood’s most adored pairs. After being together for 15 years and starting a family, the celebrity couple is still going strong.
Momoa first developed a crush on his future wife after seeing her on TV when he was a kid.
During a 2017 interview on “The Late Late Show,” Momoa told James Corden that he’s been a big fan of his wife for a very long time — since the 1980s in fact.
“… Ever since I was, like, 8 years old and I saw her on the TV, and I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one’ I’m like, ‘I’m gonna stalk you for the rest of my life, and I’m gonna get you,'” he said.
He went on to joke, “I am a full-fledged stalker. I didn’t tell her that until we had two babies, otherwise I’d be creepy and weird … I’ve always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always.”
Bonet and Momoa met for the first time during the same appearance on the late-night talk show, Momoa spoke about his first time meeting Bonet through some mutual friends at a jazz club. Momoa said they were in the right place at the right time, and he even told Corden that he’d dreaded his hair to try and impress her.
After she introduced herself, Momoa said, “I turned to my friend and was like [pretends to scream]. I had f—ing fireworks going off inside, man.” After the jazz club, Momoa asked for a ride home to his hotel, and the two stopped inside Café 101 on the way, where they drank Guinness and ate grits together.
“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,” Bonet told Porter magazine in 2018. “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.”
They had their first child together. About two years after they started dating, Bonet and Momoa welcomed their first child into the world, a daughter named Lola.
She was Momoa’s first child and Bonet’s second — she’d had her first daughter, Zoë Kravitz, with her ex-husband, Lenny Kravitz, in 1988.
