The veteran actor, who has an estimated net worth around $45 million, is currently married to gorgeous actress Daphna Kastner. They got married in 2001 and have a son named Roman together.
Harvey was in the relationship with actress Lorraine Bracco before marriage and is notorious for his affairs with female celebrities. Keitel has always been under the radar of the media. His name is often spotted in the headlines either because of his personal life or professional life.
Charismatic Keitel had proposed Katner at the Dan Carmel Hotel in Haifa, where he was attending the 17th annual International Film Festival as the guest of honor. The moment happened in the presence of Minister Roni Milo, Haifa Mayor Amram Mitzna, and Jewish-American producers Avi Lerner and Danny Dimbert.

The legendary actor is still romantic at heart despite the old age. The husband and wife are often spotted on romantic dinner dates and with their son.
Harvey has a son named Roman with wife Daphna. The cute teenager was born in 2004. Daphna and husband Harvey take their son everywhere they go, either it's a film shoot, premiere or award function.
