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."

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

This could be a story about Calle Johansson, former Washington Capital player and now Assistant Coach. He has a couple of children out of wedlock, all while still married to a wonderful woman. However, unlike Dan, Calle tries to pay off the women and takes no responsibility at all.

Dan Marino seems to have to have very fertile sperm and seems to enjoy inseminating woman with it, maybe Khloe Kardashian and Lamar could hire Marino as a sperm donor since Lamar can't get her pregnant? The kid wouldn't get a jump shot like Lamar's when he grows up but at least would have a quick 5 step dropback like Dan

First of all, your family is not strong and loving. Your wife is a doormat and you are a pig. You have embarrassed your family and **** on your children. Don't make it sound like a mistake. It was selfish, arrogant, dishonest and inhumane to put your wife at risk for aids or venereal diseases, because you don't know who that skank has slept with. Clearly, if she would screw an ugly, deceitful married man, then she would likely screw anyone.

He is a pig, he came to my hometown years ago, and he was drunk and hitting on anything in a skirt.

When Tiki Barber cheated on his pregnant wife, the viewers of his TV show were so disgusted by his behavior they complained and he was off the air. I think this may happen with Marino at CBS, people may change the channel because they no longer like Marino and watch another pregame show instead. Lower ratings for Marino's show mean less advertising dollars. Dan Marino may have cheated himself out of a job?

I wonder if they would still continue to be a "strong, loving family" if the situation had been REVERSED and his wife had a child by another man? I somehow doubt it.

There's a problem here    

So in essence his wife got sloppy seconds at some point in her marriage. Good job Marino. Looks like you can't win in more ways than one.

If Marino thinks Mrs.Marino is just going to fold her hands & kiss his forehead & forgive, he better re-think quickly. This little indescretion is going to cost Marino's wallet bigtime in the long run. Family respect is forever while a quick piece is just that, a quick piece.

Glad they worked through it and are happy folks, I'm sure there are plenty more of family-wrecking women out there who would still love to try and steal him away

This story probably came straight from Marino's agent or PR person. They knew this story was going to come out and make him look like an gigantic arsehole so they called Harvey and had them print a story making it sound like Dan's really a good guy and made a teeny tiny mistake. If his wife had the affair and became pregnant, I bet Dan would have gone straight down to the courthouse to file for divorce.
