Lisa Bonet was born in San Francisco, California. Her African American father, Allen Boney, is an opera singer and Texas native; her Jewish mother, Arlene (née Litman), was a teacher. She has several younger half-siblings.
It was interesting when we were first finding out about each other, that our backgrounds were so similar. When I first told him my mom was Jewish, and he said ‚So’s my dad,‘ I thought that was both unusual and enchanting. I felt like, ‚Okay, here’s someone who really knows how it is.‘ And I think I trusted him a little more with my feelings and let him inside a little more than I ordinarily would have.
In 1992 Bonet legally changed her name to Lilakoi Moon, although she still uses the name Lisa Bonet professionally.
On July 23, 2007, Bonet gave birth to her second child, Lola Iolani Momoa. This is the first of two children with Jason Momoa, an actor noted for his roles in the television shows Baywatch and Stargate Atlantis, and in the role of Khal Drogo in the HBO series Game of Thrones. On December 15, 2008, Bonet and Momoa had a son, Nakoa-Wolf Manakauapo Namakaeha Momoa
