Who Is Lola Iolani Momoa, Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa’s Daughter?

Lola Iolani Momoa is a charming little girl from Los Angeles who happens to be the daughter of star actors Lisa Bonet and Jason Momoa. Although she is still a little girl and has not made any notable mark in any field whatsoever, she is gradually getting ever more famous by the day. Well, apart from the fact that Iolani has appeared on a short film entitled Canvas of My Life – just because the film is focused on her dad – her gradually increasing fame is obviously due to the fact that both of her parents are big names in Hollywood. But it’s not just as simple as that (after all, other Hollywood pros also have kids who are known to no one). Instead, Iolani’s fame has been due also to the fact that she is often featured on the social media pages of her father – and, of course, Iolani’s charming personality is clearly the reason her parents like to show off with her on social media. So, get ready to learn a lot about this effervescent angel billed in many quarters to become the next big thing to happen to Hollywood.

Who Is Lola Iolani Momoa?

She was born on July 23, 2007, right there at the world capital of showbiz, Los Angeles, California. As already hinted on, she was born in the City of Angels since both of her parents ply their trades there as Hollywood professionals. Her father is Joseph Jason Namakhaeha Momoa (more popular as just Jason Momoa) while her mother is Lisa Bonet; and both of her parents are Hollywood actors.

Lola Iolani Momoa has one of the most diverse family backgrounds you can find. Her father, Jason, is a Hawaiian native but inherits a mixed ancestral background that includes German, Irish, and American Indian genes from his mother’s side. No wonder ‘Iolani’ is a Hawaiian name which means “Royal Hawk”. As for Iolani’s mother Lisa, she has a Jewish father and an African-American mother.

Apart from having entertainers as her parents, Lola Iolani Momoa also has a half-sister Zoe Kravitz who is also doing well as an actress and social media influencer. Zoe is Lisa Bonet’s daughter from a previous relationship with singer Lenny Kravitz. Lola also has a younger brother named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa.

She is currently in the 8th grade in an unknown school in California where she resides with her family. As already said, her fame is due to the fact that she is the darling of her celebrity family. And so, she often appears alongside her celebrity parents and elder sister both offline and online.

Her Father – Joseph Jason Momoa

Apart from being an actor, Jason Momoa is a model as well as a film director. He was born on August 1, 1979, in Honolulu Hawaii. His mother, Coni, worked as a photographer while his father, Joseph Momoa, was a painter. Although he trained as a wildlife biologist at Colorado State University, Jason decided to go into modeling and acting. After winning the Hawaiian Model of the Year award in 1999, the exposure he got also had movie producers knocking on his door with the offer of film roles. Thus, that same year, his acting career kicked off with a starring role as ‘Jason Ioane’ in the action drama series Baywatch: Hawaii where he appeared in 38 episodes between 1999 and 2001.

As you can already guess, Jason’s acting prowess must be far above average to have debuted with a starring role in a series. So, it is very much hoped that his daughter Lola Iolani Momoa has inherited his acting skills in an ample quantity and quality. Jason has since gone ahead to fill at least 30 TV and film roles over the years. Some of the roles that he is most remembered for include as ‘Frankie Seau’ in FOX primetime soap opera North Shore (2004 – 2005), as ‘Ronon Dex’ in the hit adventure and military science fiction TV series Stargate Atlantis (2005 – 2009), and as “Khal Drogo’ in the super highly grossing HBO fantasy drama TV series Game of Thrones (2011 – 2012).

Her Mother – Lisa Bonet

Lola Iolani Momoa’s mother, Lisa Bonet was born some twelve years before her father, that is, on November 16, 1967. Like Lola, she was born amid the hustles and bustles of a big city (San Francisco, California). Her parents have the rhyming names ‘Allen’ and ‘Arlene’. Lisa’s father Allen Bonet is an African American opera singer while her mother worked as a music teacher. Lisa attended Birmingham High School, California and graduated from the Celluloid Actor’s Studio in North Hollywood. Her popularity began as a child when she modeled and competed in beauty pageants. The popularity she had gained earned her a role as Denise Huxtable on the Cosby Show. Movies and TV shows in which Lisa has made appearances include Why Bother Voting (1992), High Fidelity (2003), Biker Boyz (2003), A Different World (2006), Life in Mars (2008), etc. Lisa Bonet was married to singer Lenny Kravitz and had a daughter. The relationship ended in 1993. Lisa Bonet is currently worth $10 million.

Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet met in 2005 and began dating. They immediately took their relationship to the next level by moving in together and in 2007, they had their first child; Lola Iolani Momoa while their second child, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, came in 2008. The couple has done their best to keep their relationship away from the media by walking separately on red carpets but that in itself has not been enough. Their admiration for each other cannot be hidden by just escaping Paparazzi because their regular posts on Instagram reveals how much love they have for each other. The duo was secretly married on November 15, 2007, but it was never confirmed. In October 2017, Lisa and Jason were officially married in front of friends, family, and wellwishers. Lisa and her husband have been together for twelve years.
