But even though he may have been vocal about his crush as a young boy, he decided to keep quiet about it to his future wife when the two first met. After all, had the first words out of his mouth been, “Oh. My. God, I absolutely knew I wanted to marry you the first time I saw you on The Cosby Show,” things may have not exactly gone as smoothly as they did between them.
Although admittedly, he was being creepy. He later said the thought, “I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you,” went through his head. Well, luckily, he didn’t actually have to stalk her, because that is entirely creepy – even if it is Jason Momoa who’s doing it.
Bonet and Momoa make an excellent team as parents, and she enjoys the fact that he takes the “alpha male” role in the relationship. After Bonet’s father left her feeling vulnerable as a child from him not being around all that much, she truly appreciates how great Jason is as a father.
When asked about all of the things she loves about him, the list is endless. On it, physique, charisma, and responsibility. Just goes to show that Aquaman is a real man.
“Jason’s Got a Girlfriend!”
The stars may have only officially gotten together in 2005, but Jason knew that Lisa Bonet had his heart from a (very) young age. Yes, when he was just 8-years old, sitting at home watching TV, he laid eyes on her for the first time. There she was: Denise Huxtable in all of her gorgeous and laid-back glory – and he knew he had to have her.
He even recalls that he brought it up and made a point of telling his mom that someday, he would.
The Meet Cute
Unless Jason Momoa actually did stalk Lisa Bonet and follow her to this club – the way they met was pretty adorable. The first time they were actually in the same vicinity was when they met at a New York City jazz club in 2005.
The actor said Bonet was his “dream woman,” and he knew he couldn’t miss the opportunity. They ended up hitting it off and he reported he, “convinced her to take me home,” since he was living in a hotel at the time.
According to every report Momoa’s given about the occasion on which he met his future wife, he could barely contain his excitement when she first acknowledged him. All it took was for her to simply introduce herself and he did the whole, arms waving, shrieking like a teenage girl who just got crowned prom queen thing. Of course, he did it facing away from her so he could still save face and keep his cool.
And everything worked out exactly as he’d imagined because, after that introduction, things continued to evolve between the two. And that night was far from over…
