“You’re the one guy who would be prepared to be quarantined because you have a fun house,” DeGeneres said to Momoa.
“I do, we’ve had a really nice time,” he agreed. “There’s a lot of things, we’ve got skateboard ramps, climbing walls, throwing tomahawks and shooting bow and arrows. We have a little bit of space, so I feel very thankful.”
The actor went on to explain that since being at home, his children “are doing very well,” adding that Nakoa-Wolf is already used to the environment as he was “being home-schooled anyways.”
However, he admitted that when it comes to helping his kids with school, he taken on more of the job of a “P.E. coach.”
“Thank god they have their teachers and much respect because it’s kind of [over my head] for me,” he said with a laugh. “I’m like the P.E. coach, like ‘Get your ass outside!’ You want to go rock climb, skateboard, that’s about it.”
When his kids aren’t busy with school work, Momoa said they “have time to check in with their friends” and enjoy having their father around.
“I rarely get to be home, so it’s pretty special,” Momoa said.
He added, “I think [my kids] are really loving it, they’re loving having me home and we’re having a great time. We’re just getting around like everybody else is.”
