Simmone recalls being so happy and ecstatic she forgot to say yes. In the couple’s engagement interview, the actress described her reaction:

The two lovebirds were blissfully happy and planning to get married in Hawaii. However, their happiness didn’t last long. In 2006, they announced their split after Momoa met his current wife, Lisa Bonet.
