The would-be couple were first introduced by a mutual friend. However, the meeting was a long time coming for Momoa, who had dreamed of dating Bonet since he was just a kid. In fact, he first fell for her through his television screen.
During an appearance on the The Late Late Show with James Corden in November 2017, Momoa revealed, “Ever since I was like, eight years old and I saw her on the TV, I was like, ‘Mommy, I want that one.’ I’m like, ‘I’m going to stalk you for the rest of my life and I’m going to get you.’”
Continuing, the Game of Thrones star added, “I’m a full-fledged stalker. I didn’t tell her that until we had two babies, otherwise, it’d be creepy and weird. But yeah, [I’d] just always wanted to meet her. She was a queen, always.”
