During his trip, Momoa dropped by to visit his grandma, Mabel. He even posted a couple of pictures of them on his Instagram account that’s melting a lot of hearts with their adorableness.
This is not the first time that Momoa showed his affection for his grandmother. He once shared a screenshot of FaceTime he had with Mabel while donning his costume in the successful DC movie “Aquaman.”
The way they share time together is just too sweet.
