Former Cosby Kid Has Another Child
Lisa Bonet is still recognizable to many fans as Denise Huxtable in the long running sitcom The Cosby Show. Well the former Cosby kid is now a third time mom after giving birth to a son on December 15, 2008. The father is Jason Momoa who is probably best known for his work in the Sci Fi series, Stargate Atlantis.
The couple already has a daughter named Lola Iolani, who was born in July, 2007. Bonet also has a daughter from a previous relationship with rocker Lenny Kravitz named Zoe. Her newest arrival was named Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha. This makes him the latest celebrity baby with an unusual moniker after Ashlee Simpson and Pete Wentz named their newborn Bronx Mowgli.
In a quote taken from Jason Momoa’s website message board, Bonet wrote, “He was born on the stormiest (sic), rainy night.” According to reports, the baby’s name was inspired by the weather conditions. She went on to write, “Nakoa (warrior)… Mana (strength/spirit) Kaua (rain) po (dark)… The name was always going to be Nakoa-Wolf.
The name reflects Momoa’s roots, at least making this moniker of cultural significance. He was born in Honolulu, Hawaii in 1979. He started out as a model and was crowned “Hawaii’s Model of the Year” in 1999. He got his start on the long running series Baywatch.
Bonet appeared in 103 episodes of The Cosby Show before she left. She has since worked in the TV series A Different World, and the big screen movies Angel Heart and Enemy of the State. She currently plays Detective Maya Daniels in the series Life on Mars.
Congratulations to this celebrity couple on the birth of their second child. Good luck also with their shows, and I’m sure we can expect to see more of them in the future.
