Current NFL on CBS studio analyst and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino fathered a child out of wedlock with a former CBS employee back in 2005.
Marino had an affair with former CBS Sports production assistant Donna Savarette, and the two had a daughter, Chloe, as a result of their tryst.
"This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then," Marino said in a statement. "We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved."
Marino, who had long had a reputation as one of the game's squeaky clean players, has been married for 28 years and has six children, four biological and two adopted.
"My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years and have six children together," Marino said. "And we continue to be a strong and loving family."
Marino agreed to pay millions to Savarette and she moved from New York to Texas to keep to matter private, but she soon returned back to New York City. After getting the millions from Marino, she started to spend her time between the Hamptons and the Upper West Side ans became a fixture on the local social scene.
Marino is now in touch with his now seven year old daughter and they would have impromptu meetings.
Marino will still be a part of CBS' Super Bowl coverage this Sunday, he has been a part of CBS' NFL coverage since 2003.
