We often hear lots of actors frequently change their romantic partners. It’s not surprising since we live in a world where people can never seem to get enough. And also, being the center of attention seems to be the main goal for many actors. 

But don’t lose hope just yet. There are still some actors who can maintain a stable, long-lasting relationship. He is Jason Momoa.

You guys will be surprised knowing that Jason Momoa had been together with his wife for almost twenty years and still going strong. Here, we will get to know more about Jason Momoa’s relationships.

From Childhood Crush to Become His Wife: Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet

Jason Momoa is currently married to Lisa Bonet and lives happily with their two children. So how could they maintain such a stable marriage while continuing to work as actors?

While working in the movie industry has never been easy, Jason and Lisa never gave up. Before they got married, the two had some difficult past experiences as well.

Lisa Bonet was previously married to Lanny Kravitz for six years and then got divorced. However, it didn’t stop Lisa from believing in love and marriage. Also, Lisa was mature enough to be friends with her ex-husband still. Jason is also a friend of Lanny’s, and we can find the three pictures together.

But, how did Lisa and Jason meet for the first time, and how’s their journey?

It turned out that Jason Momoa had been a massive fan of his wife since little kid. So it is like marrying your childhood celebrity crush? That’s crazy! He had crushed on her for more than twenty years before finally met her in 2005.

“Ever since I was, like, eight 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,” expressed Jason during his interview in The Late Late Show.

After their first encounter in 2005, they developed instant chemistry the second after they met. Even Lisa herself admitted that she could feel Jason’s love for her right away. She also described him as a gentleman since day one.

“I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day we met. At that moment, love came, and it came big. He picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style.”

Jason disclosed that he’d been super nervous before meeting Lisa. He’d even tried to impress her by dreading his hair—what a sweet man.

The couple then dated for 12 years before deciding to get married in 2017. They held a private wedding where it was only attended by family and their closest friends.

Two years after they dated, they had one daughter and were soon followed by a baby boy three years later. So when they got married, their kids were already grown up.

This couple sounds like a dream come true. What else could be better than marrying your lifetime crush and having two loving kids with them? Besides, there aren’t any negative rumors between them during their 12 years of dating life and even after their marriage. It seems like they have their happy world, away from the spotlight and toxic expectations from the media. 

Jason Momoa’s Family Was Starving and Completely in Debt

However, their life didn’t always go as smoothly as we thought. After their second child was born, they were having a financial crisis, which was tough for them. 

Before Jason got a role in his big-hit movie Aquaman, there was a time that he struggled to get going in life. Yes, he did play in season 1 of Game of Thrones in 2011 but only for one season before the character he played got killed. After that, he said that he was “completely in debt.” He also disclosed that he couldn’t even get an agent for almost four years.

“We were starving after Game of Thrones. I couldn’t get work. It’s very challenging when you have babies, and you’re completely in debt,” told Jason to InStyle.

The same situation happened to Lisa. She expressed her disappointment that the industry didn’t give too many chances for a person of color like her.

“There aren’t endless opportunities for women of color, you’ve probably noticed,” said Lisa with Net-a-Porter in 2018.

Fortunately, they managed to get out of the financial issues and got their breakthrough roles after years of struggle. Not only Jason got a role in Aquaman, but he also then starred in another big-hit sci-fi movie, Dune, alongside Timothée Chalamet.

Welcoming His First Daughter

Jason and Lisa have two children, proudly showing to the world through their social media. Their first daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, was born in July 2007 – ten years before they got married. Though Jason was super excited about having a kid, the idea of being a parent didn’t sound easy for him.

“I’m not going to do well with it. I’ll hate it if she brings home some dipsh*t bad boy. I’m like, ‘If you find a man who treats you better than I treat Bonet, good luck!” expressed Jason told Men’s Health in November 2020. However, it seems like he did a great job being a dad.

His second child was born in May 2020. This time it was a boy, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa. And just like his relationship with Lola, he also has a strong tie with Nakoa. He shared his video of him having fun with his son in Instagram stories. He wrote a caption, “Teaching my boy the ol’ no-look huck,” on the video. In addition, he has a nickname for Nakoa: “Wolfie.”

Nakoa looked enjoying his dad’s performance as he continued to laugh in the video. 

And the best part of the video is: we’re able to see how hot Shirtless-Jason is. So we’re not complaining.

One of his fans screenshotted the video and then tweeted it, “good afternoon to Jason Momoa teaching his son how to throw tomehawk only,” and immediately got more than 34,000 likes. We stan a hot and loving dad like Jason!

Jason Momoa Cancelled His Wedding Plan with Fiancée, Simmone Mackinnon

Though we know that Jason Momoa had set his eyes on Lisa Bonet since day one – and had always wanted to be with her no matter what happened – he once gave up and proposed someone else.

In 2004, he was engaged with Simmone Mackinnon, his costar in Baywatch. He was also serious with his relationship with Simmone – though he knew that Lisa was always the one. His engagement stayed for seven years before Jason called it quits.

Jason and Simmone were even planning to get married in Hawaii, according to Herald Sun. But, everything changes when he finally got to meet Lisa Bonet in 2005.

But, he never explicitly admitted that it was the main reason for their split. However, Simmone was devastated about that. Not long after Jason called it quits with her, Lisa became pregnant. It means that Jason was cheating with Lisa when they were still together. 

“It’s a shock, and of course, this news has been upsetting. But, I have moved on, and I am very happy and enjoying a great relationship with someone else,” Simmone told the Herald Sun.

That is crazy stuff to think about. 

Jason Mamoa’s and Emilia Clarke

This one isn’t romantically involved with Jason, but she is his best friend and had shared many cute moments. She is Emilia Clarke.

Emilia and Jason had been close friends since they worked together in Game of Thrones. Though Jason only appeared for one season, their relationship lasted until now, even when Jason is already married.

They both instantly find their chemistry the second they met. It was purely a friendly type of love, nothing romantic involved between them. Besides, it’s always possible to have relationships other than romantic ones, right?

Jason and Emilia’s closeness was even supported by Lisa. Of course, many rumors said they were dating – it’s hard not to assume that, though – but Lisa didn’t show any sign of jealousy even a little bit. It seems like Jason’s love for Lisa is so big until she couldn’t find any reason not to believe in him. He is a true gentleman indeed.

Even one time, Emilia took Jason’s phone to FaceTime Lisa and talked to his kids. This is the true embodiment of healthy marriage. No wonder many people adore Lisa and Jason.

Other than that, they also go through important moments together. For example, at Emilia’s 33rd birthday celebration, Jason and the GoT crew came and took many cute pictures together. 

Emilia also celebrated Jason’s birthday, though Jason is no longer the GoT crew. However, their friendship had been going strong for more than ten years now, and they will continue being cute with each other. Lovely!
