Most of us are already aware of how adorable Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet are together. The two have been inseparable, despite the unconventional circumstances of their romance.
First, Lisa is 11 years older than Jason. To him, she always was his childhood crush. “Ever since I was eight years old and I saw her on TV [on The Cosby Show], I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one!'” Jason admitted.
So when he first met her in 2005, after a chance encounter at a club. Jason could barely contain his excitement.
I turned around to my friend and was like, [fangirl shriek]. I had f***ing fireworks going off inside, man.Jason Momoa
Since then, the two haven’t left each other’s side. “We have been together from the day that we met,” Lisa told Porter magazine. Their relationship defied the odds of an age difference, her already having a daughter (Zoe Kravitz) with incredibly cool ex, Lenny Kravitz and the pressures of Hollywood.
But Jason once again proved that marriage and romance are more than just butterflies and passion when he surprised his wife with an incredibly thoughtful gift.
Jason Momoa’s surprise was 14 years in the making
Lisa bought her first car ever, a 1965 Ford Mustang, 14 years ago. Over the years, the old vehicle had gone decrepit but Jason, being the attentive husband that he is, was not going to let go of it.
“This is a big dream come true because this was my wife’s first car,” Jason declares in the video.
The little documentary details Jason’s secret plan to restore the old Mustang that was so dear to his wife. At the end, he made the big reveal with their two daughters featured in the video.

Jason keeps the romance alive, even after all these years
Jason and Lisa have been together for 14 years. For any couple, this is a long time. It might also mean the death of movie-like romance and the beginning of a routine-bound relationship. Well, not necessarily as Jason promptly shows us.
“I know we can’t relive a memory, but maybe we can rebuild one,” Jason said in the video.
When Lisa saw her old car in its new sleek and shiny form, she was overcome with her surprise. “It’s beautiful … Holy cow!” she exclaimed.
