Jason Momoa and Lisa Bonet have proved time and time again that they're basically the perfect celebrity couple. From their love story that started out with Guinness and grits, to Momoa, 41, lending his wife, 52, his green suede blazer at this year's Golden Globes, sweet moments abound.

Now, in a video posted to the actor's YouTube account titled "MY WIFE'S FIRST MUSTANG," Momoa revealed to fans that he secretly decided to restore Bonet's first-ever car: a 1965 Ford Mustang she bought when she was 17, not long after she started appearing on The Cosby Show. The model is one of three ever made.

The Aquaman star brought the vintage vehicle to Las Vegas' Devine Customs, with the video showcasing the auto-makeover from start to finish. We see the Mustang being taken apart and put back together, as it transforms with brand new leather seats and a shiny jet black paint job. And if Momoa's reaction was any indication—"Sh*t!"—he was extremely happy with the results.

"I never thought it would look like this," he said. "To be in this passengers seat with my wife here and surprise her and our babies in the back, riding in her first car from when she was 17? I'm excited to see her face."

We then get to see Bonet's reaction, as Momoa carries her on his back to surprise her with the restored Mustang. Her reaction?

"That's beautiful!" she said. "Holy cow. That is gorgeous. Not too flashy, but just enough."

The couple then shared a kiss, and we absolutely swooned because look at all that love.

In a 2019 interview with Esquire, Momoa—who shares children Lola, 13, and Nakoa-Wolf, 11, with Bonet—shared that he lovingly calls his partner of 15 years "the boss" and a "goddess." And in a rare profile for Porter magazine in 2018, Bonet dished on her hubby.

"Jason embodies a rare form of masculinity in this day and age—he’s a leader; he’s generous," she said. "Just in terms of charisma, physique, the right use of power, responsibility, work ethic, you can go down the line."
