Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have called it quits.

The couple, who first met in 2004 before dating and tying the knot in 2017, shared a joint statement on Wednesday.

"We have all felt the squeeze and changes of these transformational times… A revolution is unfolding – and our family is of no exception… feeling and growing from the seismic shifts occurring," they said.

"And so – we share our Family news – that we are parting ways in marriage."

They added: "We share this not because we think it's newsworthy – but so that – as we go about our lives we may do so with dignity and honesty.

"The love between us carries on, evolving in ways it wishes to be known and lived. We free each other – to be who we are learning to become…"

Their statement continued: "Our devotion unwavering to this sacred life & our Children. Teaching our Children what's possible – living the Prayer.

"May Love Prevail. [sic]"

The couple share children Lola Iolani Momoa, 14, and Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa, 13, while Lisa also shares Zoë Kravitz, 33, with singer Lenny Kravitz.

In 2020, with the release of his film Sweet Girl, Jason Momoa spoke about family life – and his life's greatest success: that of his family.

Speaking of career highs, he told Channel24's Bashiera Parker: "The lowest moments of my career was the highest moments - the greatest moments - of my fathering and being a family man. So, because I wasn't working, I could be at home more. So, when I'm doing my best and busting my ass and working non-stop, it's sometimes the lowest of being a father and being at home."

"My level of success is being a great father," he said at the time. "Being a great father is everything to me."
