Dan Marino Fathered a Love Child With CBS Production Assistant in 2005, Paid Her Millions to Keep it Quiet

The New York Post is reporting that Dan Marino fathered a love child with a former CBS production assistant in 2005. He also paid her millions as part of a confidentiality agreement.

The married gridiron great — a pregame analyst for CBS since 2003 who will be doing this Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast — sired a love child with a network underling and then paid her millions to keep quiet, sources have exclusively told The Post.

The ex-Miami Dolphin QB — who has long had an image as one of pro sports’ most squeaky-clean guys — knocked up Donna Savattere, a then-35-year-old production assistant at CBS Sports’ Manhattan studio.

Marino acknowledged what happened in a statement.

“This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then,” he told The Post in a written statement. “We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.”

Marino was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2005.
