Lisa Bonet graces the cover of Porter Edit magazine with a feature story talking about life, love, and her husband, Jason Momoa. Bonet has a daughter, Zoe, from her first marriage to rocker Lenny Kravitz, and two children with Jason, Lola and Nakoa-Wolf. Here she talks about meeting Jason and how well her current and ex-husband get along.
But in 2004 she met Momoa, 13 years her junior, at a jazz club in LA. “I can’t say it was full-on from the moment we saw each other, but we have been together from the day that we met,” she says. He needed a ride home that night, so Bonet took him, stopping at a café along the way for Guinness and grits. “In that moment, love came and it came big, and he did not run as I think a lot of men do.” She laughs. “He basically picked me up and threw me over his shoulder, caveman style!” They’re a picture of happiness now. Lenny and Jason are friends, the kids are all tight, Thanksgiving is a big event at their house – Bonet’s two families getting along famously. “It’s fantastic. It’s full-on family love,” she says.
We know from Jason’s Instagram account, that he is a proud papa-bear to all of the kids, oftentimes celebrating Zoe’s accomplishments with Instagram posts or commenting on her posts.
Lisa expands on what kind of person Jason Momoa is, as a father, a man, and a person of stature in Hollywood.
I tell her that a lot of women envy her, going from rock star to superhero. She corrects me again – “He wasn’t when I met him! There’s a theme. What’s cool about Jason is that he’s an alpha male who stands for love and family. And to circle back to my own wounds, having an absent father, then to be fully met by a man of that stature, is really incredible. Jason embodies a rare form of masculinity in this day and age – he’s a leader; he’s generous. Just in terms of charisma, physique, the right use of power, responsibility, work ethic, you can go down the line.”
