NFL legend Dan Marino -- a pregame analyst for CBS -- just admitted he knocked up a CBS Sports production assistant in 2004 ... while he was still married to his wife.

The baby mama is Donna Savattere -- who was 35 years old at the time of the affair. Savattere gave birth to a daughter in 2005 ... Dan's 7th child. He has 6 with his current wife Claire ... to whom he's been married for the past 28 years.

Donna Savattere
Marino released a statement to the NY 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.” 

He continues, "My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years and have six children together. And we continue to be a strong and loving family."

What makes me so mad in this situation is that not only did he cheat, but he went without a condom and risked giving his wife a disease.

I don't want to look at him right now so CBS better make arrangements to replace him for the day of the Superbowl Show....What he needs be doing right now is kissing Claire's ass and being at home

Why isn't he in jail? I thought that polygamy was outlawed in the USA. The Mormons had an extermination order issued against them for doing EXACTLY what Marino did.

What's really sick is the baby mama was the same age as the bastard child is now when Dan got married. Sick.

The full story. Dan was outed by an anonymous source, apparently because his baby mama yapped.

If this was another person, like a Woman! The public and the media would eat them and the baby for lunch. But since he's a Man with Money, nada! :-(

Typical. When you take away the money and the "celebrity" all you have left is some useless man with no love of anything but himself. I hope he has herpes.

Not surprising. Marino is not exactly an intellectual giant.
Too many drugs in college, a Wonderlic score that's about the same as his shoe size--you can't really expect much from him.

I wonder when his wife found out about this. It's bad enough that everyone now knows about this--SHE did nothing wrong--but to name the child is WRONG!!! Shame on TMZ and all the other sites and publications that gave out the child's name. The child is innocent.

Sounds like a personal matter to me and an intrusion of privacy by the writer.
