NEW YORK — NFL legend Dan Marino has admitted he impregnated a CBS Sports production assistant in 2004 while the pregame NFL analyst for CBS was still married to his wife. 

Marino said the mother of the love child is Donna Savattere, who was 35 years old at the time of the affair. Savattere gave birth to a daughter in 2005. Marino currently has six children with his current wife, Claire, to whom he’s been married for the past 28 years. 

According to TMZ, Marino released a statement to the New York Post saying, “I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then. We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.”
