NFL Hall of Fame quarterback and current CBS analyst Dan Marino fathered a child out of wedlock with another CBS employee in 2005.

The New York Post reported that Marino had an affair with former CBS Sports production assistant Donna Savattere, and the two had a daughter, Chloe, in June 2005.

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

Spokeswoman Jen Sabatelle told USA TODAY Sports this is all CBS Sports will say about Marino: “Dan has said all there is to say on this matter and he’ll be in his usual role on our broadcast Super Bowl Sunday.”

Marino has been married for 28 years to his wife, Claire, with whom he has four sons and two adopted daughters.
