Kelly LeBrock was married to fellow actor Steven Seagal from 1987 to 1996, with whom she had three children, Annaliza, Dominick, and Arrisa.

artist Steven Seagal. They had three children and appeared in one film together
(Hard to Kill) before their divorce in 1996. LeBrock worked intermittently in
