Momoa’s role in Apple’s TV+ series, ‘See’, has changed the relationship between him and his wife, and in the best way possible. In the series, Momoa plays the part of a blind man, which is something that’s new to him. In a recent interview with People, he said that the entire experience has made him more attentive to Bonet.
He also revealed that it’s helped him “feel energies and auras,” rather than taking things in as they’re first seen. “Now I’m a little bit more attentive to my wife’s energy,” he said, “Now I’m connected.”
Jason Momoa isn’t the only person who Lisa Bonet has had a serious impact on. Queen Bey herself has paid tribute to the former Cosby Show star by dressing up as her on a social media project. In the photos, the music star donned a replica of an outfit and hat that Bonet had worn in photos when she was still with Lenny Kravitz and holding Zoë as a baby (Beyoncé held the twins instead.)
Zoë thought the photos were hilarious and responded by asking, “Is Beyoncé also my mom now, or?”
All the Love
Newer generations may not all have heard of Lisa Bonet. That is until the queen herself decided to revive her and show her off to younger people by posing as her on social media. Fans absolutely loved the tribute, pouring into the comment section to express their support with lines like, “Beyoncé as Lisa Bonet has to be one of the best things I’ve ever seen.”
Another agreed, saying they love how the superstar puts other influential black women “on the radar of new generations.”
On Baby Names
Momoa and Bonet’s children’s names are pretty amazing, and they’re anything but conventional. This shouldn’t really come as a surprise, given the fact Bonet changed her own name to Lilakoi Moon back in the 1990s. When she gave birth to her daughter in 2007, they chose the name Lola “Lolani”, which means “royal hawk,” because there were “hawks flying around overhead during the birth.”
Their son, Nakoa-Wolf, actually has a much longer name on his birth certificate: Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha. That’s a definite tongue twister!
Protecting Her King
When the couple attended the Academy Awards, there was a slightly awkward exchange on the red carpet between them and the host/model, Ashley Graham. While the model spoke to Momoa about his current work, she asked him to do the Haka dance from 'Game of Thrones' – and it did not go over very well with him or his wife.
In fact, he immediately shot a glance in Bonet’s direction, at which point they both sort of stared back at the host with expressions that said, “You cannot be serious right now,” followed by Bonet politely declining for him. After all, the man was on the red carpet in a crazy expensive suit and trying to enjoy a night with his wife. Rude.
