- Jason Momoa revealed in an adorable Instagram video that he recently adopted a pet pig.
- “This is why i can’t work with animals i want to bring them home,” Momoa captioned the post.
- The “Aquaman” star said in 2019 that he also has a donkey, two “half-wolves,” and a ball python.
Jason Momoa showed off his newest pet — an adorable black pig — in a recent Instagram video.
In the first video clip, the Aquaman” star cuddles with the small pig, and reveals that he’s thinking of naming the animal either Lau Lau or Manapua, two popular Hawaiian foods that often contain pork. “this is why i can’t work with animals i want to bring them home,” Momoa captioned the video.
The actor appears to have adopted the pig after filming the upcoming Netflix film “Slumberland,” which, as People noted, follows a young girl with a stuffed pig that comes alive after dark. Momoa reportedly plays a “magical” character in the film who helps the young girl reunite with her deceased father through dreams.
In a subsequent video clip, the “Game of Thrones” actor asks the pig if he’d like to accompany Momoa to the upcoming premiere of Momoa’s new Netflix film “Slumberland.”
“We can paint your nails pink and put a little top hat on you,” he tells the animal.
Off-camera, Momoa’s mother cuts in, telling her son: “I think that’d be a little over the top since you just got him.”
“Well, mom, I’m kind of over the top,” Momoa replies, without missing a beat.
The “Game of Thrones” alum is a well-known animal lover; he previously revealed during a 2019 appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” that he shares a donkey, two “half-wolves,” a ball python, and a dog with actor and ex-wife Lisa Bonet.
Momoa and Bonet split earlier this year after being together since 2005. They share two children: 15-year-old Lola, and 13-year-old Nakoa-Wolf.
