NFL legend DAN MARINO admits to having a love child with his former mistress – and he dropped the bombshell on his wedding anniversary!
The married quarterback-turned-CBS broadcaster Wednesday admitted to having a 7-year-old daughter named Chloe with Donna Savattere, a beautiful production assistant he had an affair with when they worked together at the network’s Manhattan location.
Marino confirmed the existence of his love child in a written statement to the New York Post, which first reported the story.
The announcement came on the same day the 51-year-old NFL legend celebrated his 28th wedding anniversary with his wife, Claire.
“This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and financially for my actions now as I did then,” the Miami Dolphins great told the NY tab.
“We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all parties involved.
“My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years and have six children together,” he continued. “And we continue to be a strong and loving family.”
RadarOnline.com reported that Marino and Savattere, then 35, “had an affair, and she had a baby,” adding that “everything was on the down-low and secretive.”
