Momoa, 42, and Bonet, 54, married in October 2017 after dating for more than a decade. It was the first marriage for Momoa and the second for Bonet who had been married to rockstar Lenny Kravitz from 1987 to 1993.

In a December 2020 issue of Men’s Health, the “Aquaman” star talked about working up the nerve to make the first move with Bonet, who is 12 years his senior, when he was 26.

Momoa admitted that he was “a nervous wreck” at the time.

“Especially when you meet someone you’re completely infatuated with and then find out she’s amazing, intelligent, and funny and she’s a goddess and you’re a degenerate,” he told the magazine.

Still, Momoa pushed past his nerves and said he’d encourage anyone else in the same situation to try their best to do the same.

“Be you. Try to be funny and make her laugh,” he said.

The couple share two children together: son Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, 13, and daughter Lola Iolani Momoa, 14. Their statement on Wednesday stressed they were separating to set a good example for their kids.

"The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived," the statement continued. "We free each other ~ to be who we are learning to become… our devotion unwavering to this sacred life and our Children."

The joint statement was signed "J & L" with the valediction: "Teaching our Children What’s possible ~ Living the Prayer ... May Love Prevail."
