Actor Jason Momoa has played many roles through his acting career, but now he has taken on a new role of P.E. teacher as he quarantines at home with his family. On April 15, Momoa appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and discussed how he keeps his children active and educated during their quarantine time away from school.
Jason Momoa has two children with his wife, actress Lisa Bonet: 12-year-old Lola and 11-year-old Nakoa-Wolf Momoa. Jason Momoa explained that his kids are learning well at home and that his son Nakoa-Wolf was home-schooled prior to their quarantine, so he is already familiar with their situation. When it comes to educating his children though, Momoa plays the role of P.E. teacher. “Thank god they have their teachers and much respect because it’s kind of [over my head] for me,” laughed Momoa. “I’m like the P.E. coach, like ‘Get your ass outside!’ You want to go rock climb, skateboard, that’s about it.”
Jason Momoa makes sure his children get their exercise, and his home certainly has enough space for it. DeGeneres told Momoa that he is “the one guy who would be prepared to be quarantined because you have a fun house.” Momoa agreed, saying: “I do, we’ve had a really nice time. There’s a lot of things, we’ve got skateboard ramps, climbing walls, throwing tomahawks and shooting bow and arrows. We have a little bit of space, so I feel very thankful.”
Due to his busy schedule, Momoa is often away from home, so he and his children make the most of their quality time together in quarantine. “I rarely get to be home, so it’s pretty special,” Momoa shared. “I think my kids are really loving it, they’re loving having me home and we’re having a great time. We’re just getting around like everybody else is.”
