Lenny Kravitz and Jason Momoa have proven that breakups don't necessarily lead to ill feelings. 

The 56-year-old musician got married to actress Lisa Bonet in 1987 and had a daughter, Zoë Kravitz, with her. They eventually divorced in 1993, when Zoë was still young. 

Even though their marriage ended, Kravitz and Bonet remained friends and focused their attention on co-parenting their daughter, who is now a 32-year-old actress. 

Years later, Bonet met Momoa, who had a childhood crush on the "High Fidelity" actress, at a jazz club. They began dating and tied the knot in 2017. Now, the actors share two children: Lola Iolani, 13, and Nakoa-Wolf, 11.  

And while many people struggle watching their former partners move on, Kravitz said he immediately felt love for the 41-year-old "Game of Thrones" star when he got together with his ex-wife during a 2020 interview with Men's Health.

"We just do it because that's what you do. You let love rule, right?" he said. 

Here's a timeline of Kravitz and Momoa's friendship. 

June 2013: Kravitz said that they've created "one big happy family."

The musician discussed his previous marriage with Bonet and their blended family on an episode of Oprah Winfrey's "Master Class."

Kravitz began by stating that he and Bonet were "incredibly and deeply in love" and in a "magical, magical relationship" before they divorced. 

"She really helped to bring out the best in me and inspired me," he said. 

He also explained that he now views his time with Bonet as a gift since it gave him his daughter, Zoë. 

"We had Zoë, which, I see now, is what it was all about. It was really all about bringing this beautiful child into the planet, and also sharing the love that we had," he said. 

Though they divorced in 1993, Kravitz said that he and Bonet remain "best friends," which is what they were before they got married.

Since Bonet tied the knot with Momoa in 2017, the artist said that he considers them to be "one big happy family."

"When we're all together now — her man, her kids, Zoë, me — we're all together and we're one big happy family," he said, adding, "It's beautiful and it just shows you what can be done."

December 2018: Momoa gifted Kravitz a bone skull ring.

"I'm a huge fan of the artists I meet on instagram love spreading the aloha. I got @lennykravitz a present made by @leroyswoodentattoos amazing bone skull ring," he wrote.

Momoa, who hosted an episode of NBC's "Saturday Night Live" on December 8, 2018, also revealed that Kravitz came to 30 Rock for the occasion. 

"Mahalo lenny for coming to support me on @nbcsnl aloha j," he continued.

The "Fly Away" singer said that he and Bonet are "like brother and sister" during an interview with People

"After Lisa and I separated, we learned to find a new relationship," he explained.  

Kravitz added that he considers himself and Momoa to be family. 

"I met Jason when they got together and I love him, he loves my kid and I love their kids and we're all one big family. It's beautiful," he said.

Kravitz hasn't remarried since his divorce from Bonet, but he told the outlet that he's hopeful about finding a partner. 

"I'm at a place now where I've been through so many relationships, and I haven't been good at it all the time, at all. I've had a lot to learn, but I feel like I'm at a place where I'm really ready for that," he said.

Kravitz added, "Things come to you when you're ready, I believe."

July 2019: The musician said that their "blended" family is "beautiful" but admitted that it "takes work."

During an interview with the UK publication The Times, Kravitz touched on the difficulty of becoming friends following a divorce. 

"You go through a marriage with somebody, you break up and it's very difficult. But [Lisa and I] put the work in and we took the time so that we could become best friends again," he said. 

Kravitz explained that their families have become "blended."

"I love her husband [Momoa] — he's like a brother to me — and I love the kids," he added. "It's beautiful, but it takes work."

August 2019: Kravitz wished Momoa a happy birthday on Instagram.

While their dynamic might not be the norm for everyone, Kravitz said that he immediately took a liking to Momoa. 

"People can't believe how tight Jason and I are, or how tight I still am with Zoë's mom, how we all relate," Kravitz said during an interview with Men's Health.

He added, "We just do it because that's what you do. You let love rule, right?"

And though Momoa and Kravitz have a tight-knit relationship, the rockstar said that it took effort in the beginning. 

"I mean, obviously, after a breakup, it's work — it takes some work and time, healing and reflection, et cetera," he said, adding, "But as far as Jason and I? Literally the moment we met, we were like, 'Oh, yeah. I love this dude.'"
