Jason and Lisa tied the knot in October 2017, but they have been together much longer.
The couple met in a New York jazz club through mutual friends in 2005.
Speaking with James Corden on The Late Late Show, Jason said: “We just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
“I actually had dreaded my hair for her. I had dreadlocks, she had dreadlocks. I literally turned my head around and I see her and she goes, ‘I’m Lisa.’
“I turned around to my friend and I screamed. I had fireworks going off inside. I convinced her to take me home, because I was living in a hotel.”
After 12 years together, Jason and Lisa decided to make it legal and get married.
The wed in a low-key ceremony at their home in Topanga, California.
Friends and family were in attendance.
It’s rumored that a traditional Maori haka was performed for Jason at his request.
Jason and Lisa kept many of the details of their special day under wraps.
During their relationship, the ultra-private couple welcomed two kids.
In 2007, Lisa gave birth to Lola Iolani Momoa, their eldest child.
While her parents try to keep their life private, the teen rarely shies away from the cameras.
She also makes appearances on her mom and dad’s social media pages.
Lola has followed in her parents’ footsteps.
She was featured in The Canvas Of My Life, a short film about her dad, Jason, as a husband and a parent.
Lisa and Jason are also parents to Nakoa-Wolf Momoa.
He’s their youngest child and he was born in December 2008.
His name is a nod to his father’s Hawaiian heritage.
Nokoa means warrior in the native language of Hawaii.
The boy’s middle name, Manakauapo, is a combination of two Hawaiian terms with one meaning rain and the other meaning dark.
Those are said to have been the conditions in LA in the hours after his birth.
Lisa has a daughter named Zoe from a previous marriage.
