The Maternal Side of his Family
His parents, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet met each other in 2005 and began dating. His mother, before the time, was in a marriage with Lenny Kravitz, which lasted between 1987 and 1993, producing a child, Zoe Isabella Kravitz. Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa’s parents did not get married until October 2017, at least in a legal manner. We know, however, that they initially got married on the 15th of November 2007.
While he gained a stepsister through her mother’s marriage to Lenny Kravitz, he also has a biological sibling, an older sister who was born in July 2007.
His mother, who still widely goes by the name, Lisa Bonet, has since changed her name legally to Lilakoi Moon and was born on the 16th of November 1967. She is the daughter of Allen and Arlene Bonet. Her father was an African American and her mother Jewish, they raised her as a Jewish child alongside her half-siblings.
Nakoa-Wolf’s grandfather, Allen Bonet, being an opera singer, introduced Lisa Bonet to the performing arts, and she began to appear in beauty competitions and made guest appearances on several TV shows. Since she started her professional career in 1982, Nakoa-Wolf’s mother’s career has seen her appear on The Cosby Show, playing the classic role of Denise Huxtable and she also starred in the spinoff show, A Different World.
While Nakoa’s mother does not share the level of popularity of his father, she has appeared in several popular projects, which include Ray Donovan, New Girl, Road to Paloma, and a couple more others. Nakoa’s halfsister Zoe Isabella Kravitz is also a known actress, model and singer. Zoe has starred in films like Rough Night, Mad Max: Fury Road and Divergent.
His Father is one of Hollywood’s Most-desired Men
Jason Momoa, on the other hand, was born on the 1st of August, 1979, in Honolulu, Hawaii, and has been in the industry since 1999. He started his career as a model before he became an actor, making his first set of onscreen appearances on the show, Baywatch Hawaii.
Since then, Jason Momoa has experienced a rapid rise to become one of the most recognizable faces in Hollywood. He has played a few iconic roles like Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, Conan in Conan the Barbarian, and Aquaman in the DC Extended Universe.
As an actor, he has appeared in more than thirty movies and TV shows. For his work, he has more than five award nominations, including the Canadian Screen Awards and MTV Movie and TV Awards.
Despite currently having a limited CV as an actor, Nakoa’s father has become one of the most recognized and admired men in Hollywood. Thanks to his well-toned body, iconic tattoos, and a perfectly chiselled face, Jason Momoa has pushed beyond the limitations of his acting career and established himself as a global sex symbol.
Nakoa is Heir to a Sizeable Fortune
He might be born and raised in a culture that prioritizes empathy, duty, and community over money but Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa is still the heir to a sizeable fortune. At the moment, according to Celebrity Net Worth, that fortune is worth $24 million – the combined net worth of his parents, Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet.
That is, of course, if her parents do not make the move like most celebrities and decide not to pass their wealth to their children. Additionally, Nakoa, although the only son, has two siblings, who will further share out of his parents’ fortune. Still, $24 million in three ways? That is a lot of money for the young Hawaiian.
