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."

WTF - Sorry, but if you get pregnant at 35, no one knocks you up. You've made a choice not to use protection and got pregnant.

The thing that gets me about this & the whole Arnold having a child with the housekeeper thing, every adult on this planet knows there are women who will use a baby as a way to either convice a guy to marry when it's clear his not otherwise willing to, or if he's a wealthy celeb, as a way to get a huge child support payout. What happend to his common sense? Even if you have no respect or love for the spouse, at least don't make a mistake that will be an ongoing thing.

She got millions in child support from Marino. That's a whole lot of money for somebody who forgot to go to the drug store. She wanted his kid, knew he was married for over twenty years, and had a bunch of kids. That means she did it for the money, and you know what we call those "girls".

I found it appauling and exteremly arrogant that you actually were on the TV yesterday for theSuperBowl festivities. I also have to question CBS management for this their lack of good judgment. I am not perfect myself,but I think this sets a very bad example.Lucky for you, your wife didn't "mess you up" so you weren't able to be seen on the TV.

CBS -- throw Dan off the air immediately! I can't believe he actually had the nerve to show his face -- and that you allowed him to be on the air -- on Sunday, after he announced he had fathered a love child! Totally disgusting and inappropriate under the cir***stances. Is he actually proud of his behavior? And are YOU, CBS?
