Meet Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha: Jason Momoa And Lisa Bonet’s Son

When you have Hollywood powerhouses like Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet as parents, springing to stardom or celebrity status will definitely be the least of your worries. It’s no news that members of the Momoa family are among the most sought-after celebrities in Hollywood with every fan eager to know as much as they can about them. Meet the family’s youngest addition Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, an adorable American boy enjoying all the attention as a young celebrity.

Nakoa-Wolf’s Name Explained

Nakoa-Wolf is the son of popular Hollywood bigshots Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet. He was born on December 15, 2008. According to his mother, his full name is a reflection of the circumstances that surrounded the night she had him in Los Angeles. Lisa revealed shortly after his birth that her son arrived under rare horrible weather and that Nakoa means ‘Warrior’, Mana means ‘Strength or spirit’, Kaua stands for ‘rain’ while Po means ‘dark’.

It’s no secret that Hawaiian names are often much longer than Western names but Nakoa-Wolf’s mouthful name seems to be very special as it has not only made him famous but has also left many people wondering how he would be able to fill official documents.

Get To Know Nakoa-Wolf’s Father

The young celebrity’s father is your favourite Game of Thrones actor Jason Momoa. Dubbed ‘Khal Drogo‘ for his role in the American fantasy drama television series, Jason was born on August 1, 1979, in Honolulu Hawaii, United States.

The only child of artistic parents Coni and Joseph Momoa, his mother was a photographer while his father was a respected painter known for his good looks. His mom, Coni is of German, Native American and Irish ancestry while his father was born in Hawaii, which is Jason’s birthplace too.

The actor spent the majority of his childhood in Iowa with his mother. He would later return to Hawaii to embrace his roots and bond with his father. Shortly after leaving high school, Jason Momoa proceeded to study marine biology at a college in Iowa and later Colorado State University where he majored in wildlife biology.

Before storming the spotlight, the hunky actor enjoyed small-scale popularity as a model following his emergence as Hawaii’s Model of the Year in 1999.

As a man of many talents and passions, Jason has plunged his toes into different oceans of interest. The good-looking actor once traveled to France to study pastel painting and Tibet to study Buddhist teachings. Momoa has a thing for traveling; he loves embarking on a world tour with his family.

Endowed with tremendous physical look and strength, the Hawaii-born star snagged his first major acting gig shortly after winning the Model of the Year in 1999. He later featured in Baywatch Hawaii for three years before co-writing and directing Road to Paloma, a 2014 movie he starred together with his wife.

Behind the camera, Jason Momoa is a doting and caring husband to his wife Lisa Bonet, a super dad to his adorable children, and a loving stepfather to Zoe Isabella Kravitz – Lisa’s first daughter with ex-husband Lenny Kravitz.
