The 41-year-old “Aquaman” star shared a new YouTube video this week showing how he surprised his other half by restoring the very first car she ever bought for herself, a custom, 1965 Mustang.
“There she is. The story is, this is her first car she ever bought,” he explained in the video, as he arrived to Divine One Customs to see the white, rusted and worse for wear vehicle. “One of three ever made and it has a lot of custom parts to it.”
The team at Divine One then got to work, restoring every inch of the classic muscle car, before painting it black and showing Momoa and the couple’s two children — Nakoa-Wolf, 11, and Lola, 13 — the finished product.
“Shit!” exclaimed the actor upon seeing what they had accomplished. “This is a big dream come true because this was my wife’s first car. I never thought that it would look like this.”
“To be in this passenger seat with my wife here to surprise her, our babies in the back, riding in her first car when she was 17, I’m excited to see her face,” he said after marveling at the makeover. “It’s come a long way. A long way.”
