Popularly known for his appearance as "Aquaman" in the DC movie "Aquaman" and also as "Khal Drogo" in the HBO television series "Game of Thrones," he has been in the public eye since 1999 where he won "the Hawaii model of the year" and hosted the "Miss Teen Hawaii" contest.

He has further been spotted several times in different movies amongst which are; "North Shore," "Road to Paloma" and many others.

The 39-year-old claims that his wife, Lisa Bonet, is very private, hence he decided to make a short movie about the experience.

He said:

"My wife was like, 'You're not allowed to ride with the kids on the bike, absolutely not.' I went, 'What if I built the kids a sidecar?' She goes, 'I'll think about it.'"

Jason Momoa alongside his two kids, Lola Iolani Momoa (his daughter) and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa (his son) built up a Motorbike from scratch with the help of Momoa's mate Jeremiah, who taught him how to couple the parts together.

The knowledge will now be passed down to his son, and his daughter would inherit the motorbike. The actor further stated that this was not about leaving things for his kids, but that he did this so his kids would get to have and experience something he never had. He said:

"Those are the heirlooms. All I have is being at home and being a papa. I don't want them to know me as my job. I just wanted to build a Harley with my kids."

He added:

"The biggest thing I'm trying to do for my children is just let them have their imagination, their creativity, and to let that flourish."

He continues, by adding he wants to "inspire a younger generation to go out and shoot (movies). He said:

"I hope they get to see I'm striving for my dreams and building new ones always,"

He concluded by saying:

"We all have great stories, and it doesn't take much, but you've just got to get out there and keep trying and keep trying."
