Former Miami Dolphins quarterback and current CBS NFL analyst Dan Marino fathered a child with a CBS Sports employee and paid her millions to keep it secret, according to the New York Post. Marino has served as a pregame analyst for CBS since 2003 and reportedly admitted to having an affair with Donna Savattere, a production assistant at the time. Savattere, who was 35 at the time, gave birth to daughter, Chloe, in June 2005, according to The Post. "This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then," Marino told The Post in a statement. We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved." While the exact amount is unclear, sources told The Post that Marino paid Savattere millions to care for Chloe. Marino also gave a statement on his marriage to The Post. "My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years and have six children together," he wrote Wednesday. "And we continue to be a strong and loving family."
