Lilakoi Moon – birthname Lisa Michelle Bonet – is an American actress and activist. She rose to fame in the early eighties, upon landing the role of Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show."

Bonet briefly left "The Cosby Show" for a year to pursue other projects in Hollywood. She returned to "The Cosby Show" a year later.

However, her contract with "The Cosby Show" was canceled shortly after her return due to creative differences with the show's executive producers.

LISA BONET'S HUSBAND

Lisa Bonet is married to Jason Momoa, who is known for his portrayal of Ronan Dex in "Stargate Atlantis," as Khal Drogo in "Game of Thrones."

The couple began dating in 2005 but only tied the knot two years ago. They have been together for more than 14 years. 

Both Bonet and Momoa value their privacy. For years it was assumed that the couple walked down the aisle in 2007.

Momoa first saw Bonet on "The Cosby Show" in the late eighties, and it was love at first sight. He vowed back then that he would marry her one day.

Momoa was officially introduced to Bonet in 2005 through mutual friends. She was 37 years old at the time, and Momoa was only 25. 

The secret to their success is maintaining close bonds within the family. Their extended family gets along well, and Bonet loves nothing more than getting everyone in the same room together.
