Jason Momoa's 2 Kids Are His Literal Mini Mes — See the Photos That Prove It!
Jason Momoa made headlines in 2022 following his public split from ex-wife Lisa Bonet and his most recent relationship with Eiza González. But one fact that might've slipped fans' minds is that the Aquaman star is also a proud dad. The actor shares two children with Bonet, whom he married in 2017 after 12 years together and over 10 years after having their first child. The pair welcomed a daughter, Lola Iolani Momoa, in 2007 and had their second child, son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, in 2008.
Though Momoa and Bonet announced that they were parting ways on Jan. 12, 2022, the two made it clear that their children are their number one priority and assured fans that they are "still family." And despite reconciliation rumors that began shortly after their split, Momoa insisted to Access Hollywood in March 2022, "We're not back together." He added: "We're family, we have two beautiful children together. We're not getting back together, we're family forever." Additionally, despite Momoa and Bonet's amicable split, Momoa is still "papabear" to his stepdaughter, "The Batman" star Zoë Kravitz, whom Bonet shares with singer Lenny Kravitz.
We've put together some of our favorite family photos of Momoa and his two kids, who bear an uncanny resemblance to their famous dad. Meet them and get a peek at the actor's adorable ohana ahead.
Lola Iolani Momoa
Born July 21, 2007, Lola is Momoa and Bonet's oldest child together. Speaking to Esquire in 2019, Momoa recalled how he almost missed Lola's birth because he was asleep. Apparently, Bonet's water broke early so the actor wasn't even expecting to hear from her yet. "There was no air-conditioning in these places, so I was sleeping in the front window," he shared while sitting across the street from his old apartment in Canada. "I missed about seventy calls. And I woke up and freaked the f*ck out."
After a last-minute plane ride and race through the airport, Momoa said he made it "in the nick of time." "I had about two hours with her in the tub, and my baby girl was born," he said. "Oh, and this is the best part! Benjamin Bratt was on the plane! He was in first class. And when I ran past him, I'm like, 'Oh, sh*t, Benjamin Bratt!' And he was like, 'Go, go, go.'" That's a hell of a birth story.
Fast-forward to Lola's 11th birthday, Momoa couldn't help but rave about her on Instagram. He wrote beside some photos of her, "11 years ago it was the greatest day of my life. My baby girl was born. Lola oh Lola. You are my angel Mahalo."
Now, Lola's a full-grown teenager at 16 years old, and the thought of her growing up so fast understandably frightens Momoa. Back in 2020, the "Aquaman 2" actor told Men's Health he cried about Lola turning 13 because he knew she'd eventually start dating. "I'll just hate it if she brings home some dipsh*t bad boy," he said, adding, "I'm like, 'If you find a man who treats you better than I [treat Bonet], good luck!'"
Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa
Nakoa-Wolf, usually referred to by his dad as Wolf, was born on Dec. 15, 2008, just under a year and a half after his sister. Like his dad, Wolf likes wearing the color pink (as proven on his sister's 11th birthday) and rocks long locks. There's no questioning that he is Momoa's son.
According to Momoa, growing up without a father has impacted his parenting style with Wolf, telling InStyle in 2020, "I don't want to just tell my son, 'Because I said so.' I really want to connect and I want him to be vulnerable and open."
In honor of his love for his son, Momoa also has Wolf's name, as well as Lola's, tattooed over his heart in their own kiddie handwriting.
Zoë, who is Bonet's child from her previous marriage to Lenny Kravitz, is Momoa's stepdaughter, and the pair — who are just nine years apart in age — are adorably close. They even have matching tattoos! Despite her mom's split from Momoa, that hasn't seemed to have a huge impact on Zoë and the actor's bond. In fact, roughly two months after their breakup, Momoa, along with his two kids, still came out to support Zoë at the NYC premiere of "The Batman."
