Even though Bonet recalled that the moment they met wasn’t exactly “fireworks” for her, much unlike Momoa described, by actually using that exact word, doesn’t mean she wouldn’t fall just as hard in the future. In fact, over a short period of time, she remembers that “love came, and it came big.” And her reaction? She welcomed the love with open arms and the two were in a happy relationship not long after getting to know one another.
Of course, Bonet’s open mind and openness to love is what’s kept things so amazing for their entire extended family, and how she’s managed to stay best friends with her ex-husband and eldest child’s father for so long.
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…
Love at First Sip
After meeting at the smooth jazz club where he was with his friends, he’d convinced Bonet to drop him off at his hotel, but not before they stopped at a café. While at the café, they sipped some Guinness and ate grits, which may sound incredibly simple, but was the moment Momoa knew they were in it for the long run.
But even though he was convinced, he still had some convincing to do. But as it turns out, all he really had to do was, “pick me up and throw me over his shoulder, caveman style,” said the Cosby Show actress.
When it comes to their meeting, Momoa swears he just happened to be in the “right place at the right time.” And aside from the magical coincidence that they both ended up in the same NYC club at the same time, there’s the other bit that “I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks.”
Of course, you know it’s true love when you’re sporting the same hairstyle! Not really. But in their case, that’s exactly what it was.
Bonet has also talked about how her absent father really had an effect on her as a child, and she was impressed that Jason is an “alpha male.” And once they had their two children, the actor let her in on the secret that he’d been crushing since his own childhood.
The adorable thing is, he calls his wife “queen” quite frequently, and said that she has “always been a queen, always.” And Bonet’s Rockstar ex-husband, and friend of her current husband, Lenny Kravitz, would agree with him.
