Momoa posted the meeting and exchanging of gifts - Tana was given a hoodie from the ‘Aquaman’ star’s new collection - to his Instagram, where he showered the All-Black legend with respect in the caption.
“Breakfast with a legend,” it reads. “Truly one of my heroes. I look up to this beautiful man. So thankful for his gift”.
Tana kept it humble during the interaction, his calmness in contrast to Momoa’s excitement.
“Now that we’re exchanging things,” Tana said. “I’ve got an old jersey of mine that has been sitting around. I've seen you’ve got a black so I thought I’ll give you a white one”
From Tana’s personal collection, the jersey was worn in the year 2000. It’s hard to tell exactly what game it's from but All Blacks vs Scotland at Eden Park in July of that year is a good shout.
Tana was playing in the white #14 jersey that day, scoring a try as the ABs went on to win 48 - 14. A jersey the one and only Tana Umaga scored a try is a pretty mean flex.
Momoa seems to be in a gift-giving mood as just the other day he gave another All-Black a bunch of stuff. Prop Ofa Tuʻungafasi was the recipient of a hoodie, undies and a quick dry towel - reminds me of Christmas gifts from the weird side of the whānau.
“So thankful for our friendship,” Momoa said in an Instagram post. “I love spoiling my friends - so much to come. Mahalo”.
Earlier this year, Jason made headlines for freaking out over another All Blacks jersey.
The Hawaiian actor and his two kids attended the launch of the new All Blacks 2023 Rugby World Cup Jersey in Tāmaki Makaurau and could be seen getting a crack-up close-up shot of his bro Caleb Clarke.
Aquaman and the ABs is looking like one of the strongest bromances of the year, figuratively and literally.
