8. Co-Stars

While many celebrity couples meet on set, they don’t often work together afterward but Momoa and Bonet did. The two co-starred in 2014’s Road to Paloma, as on-screen lovers of course, but their real-life love didn’t make it any easier for the actor who revealed that working with his wife was actually challenging. “I always wanted to work with her. It’s funny though — she made me shy!”

7. Childhood Crush

Almost everyone develops childhood celebrity crushes, but not everyone gets to marry that crush! Given their 11 year age gap, Momoa actually grew up watching The Cosby Show and Lisa Bonet as Denise Huxtable on the series, and even then knew she was the woman he wanted to marry. “I was definitely… that was the first time when I was like, ‘I want that one. I want her. I’m going to get her,” he admitted of his crush while on Katie Couric’s show in 2014, but he didn’t let his wife know just how long he had been in love her until years later. “I didn’t tell her until after we had our two children. But I told her… ‘I kinda stalked ya. I was going to find ya.'”
