Hollywood stars Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet were one of the fans' favorites during their time as a couple. The former couple's romance was like a novel, and for most of their relationship, Momoa described Bonet as his dream woman.

It was not surprising to the public as Bonet had always been on the actor's mind since he was a child. Momoa first saw the actress on TV in the 1980s when she starred as Denise Huxtable on "The Cosby Show," It was love at first sight.

The actor recalled the unforgettable moment during a 2017 episode of "The Late Late Show." He explained to the show's host, James Corden, thus:

"Ever since I was like eight years old and I saw her on TV, I was like, 'Mommy, I want that one.' I'm like, 'I'm going to stalk you for the rest of my life, and I'm going to get you.'"

After many years of possible stalking, Momoa and Bonet finally crossed paths in 2004. They met through mutual friends at a Jazz club in Los Angeles, and according to Momoa, they just happened to be at the right place at the right time.

The actor, who had sported dreadlocks to impress Bonet, recalled feeling ecstatic about their meeting. Momoa said he was short of words and felt like fireworks went off inside him.

Later on, the actor asked Bonet for a ride home, and on the way, they stopped at a café for Guinness and grits. The actress told Porter Magazine in 2018 that it was at that moment she fell in love with Momoa. Unlike other men, the actor did not run away, which captivated Bonet's heart.

Momoa possessed everything Bonet needed in a man, making the latter fall deeper in love with the actor as their romance blossomed.

Out of everything, Momoa's approach to love and family was unmatched, and it made the actress think of her man as an alpha male. Bonet had dealt with an absent father, and having Momoa fill that void was 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," Bonet once said of the actor.

The pair's bond and love for each other got more profound by the day. After dating for 12 years, Momoa and Bonet finally exchanged wedding vows in October 2017 in a low-key ceremony at their house in Topanga, California.

While Momoa had a booming career and always wanted to work, Bonet loved her life in Los Angeles and could not be with her husband during every trip. With time, the distance gravely affected their relationship, eventually leading to their split.

However, in March 2022, while speaking to Access Hollywood on the Oscars Red Carpet, the actor debunked the speculations.
