Momoa Loved Bonet even Before they Became Romantically Involved.
“Listen it was more than [love at first sight]. Ever since I was 8 years old and I saw her on the TV I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one,'” he told James Corden years ago. “I was like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life, and I’m going to get you.’ I’m a full-fledged stalker.”
Eventually, they met at a jazz club through mutual friends.
Bonet, who became famous as Denise Huxtable on The Cosby Show in the 1980s, was scouted long before then by Momoa.

“In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do,” Lisa Bonet said in an interview with Porter magazine in 2018. “He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!”
In 2007, they welcomed their first child together, Lola. The following year, Nakoa-Wolf was born.
Momoa raised Bonet’s daughter, actress Zoë Kravitz, from a previous marriage to rockstar Lenny Kravitz. The two also became extremely close, considering themselves to be brothers.
