EXCLUSIVE: NFL legend Dan

Marino had a love child with CBS

employee in 2005

Dan Marino is famous for his touchdowns — but the Hall of Famer’s scoring off the

field is downright shocking.

The married gridiron great — a pregame analyst for CBS since 2003 who will be

doing this Sunday’s Super Bowl broadcast — sired a love child with a network

underling and then paid her millions to keep quiet, sources have exclusively told

The Post.

The ex-Miami Dolphin QB — who has long had an image as one of pro sports’ most

squeaky-clean guys — knocked up Donna Savattere, a then-35-year-old

production assistant at CBS Sports’ Manhattan studio.

She gave birth to their daughter, Chloe, in June 2005.

“They had an affair, and she had a baby,” said a source. “Everything was on the

down-low and secretive.” News of the affair and child comes as Marino is set to work Sunday’s big “Super

Bowl Today” telecast.

He and other former NFL greats, such as Boomer Esiason and Shannon Sharpe,

will jaw about the big game for hours before the 6:30 p.m. kickoff between the

Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers. The revelation could make for some

awkward moments during the long broadcast, which starts at 2 p.m.

Marino yesterday admitted to his dalliance.

“This is a personal and private matter. I take full responsibility both personally and

financially for my actions now as I did then,” he told The Post in a written

statement. “We mutually agreed to keep our arrangement private to protect all

parties involved.”

New York Post Football Hall of Famer Dan Marino had an affair with a CBS

employee and later paid the woman millions of dollars to support their

daughter, sources say.

At the time of the affair and Chloe’s birth, Marino was married to his wife of 20

years, Claire, with whom he had six kids, including four sons and two adopted

daughters.

The birth of baby Chloe came about two months before Marino’s Hall of Fame

induction — at which his son Daniel made what danmarino.com called “a moving

tribute to his father.”

Marino insisted that his marriage is still intact, despite the affair.

“My wife and I have been married for almost 30 years and have six children

together,” he wrote yesterday — which happened to be his 28th wedding

anniversary.“And we continue to be a strong and loving family.”

Marino agreed to pay Savattere millions to care for Chloe, sources say, and she

moved to Texas as part of the deal. It’s not clear exactly how much Marino paid. But after getting the dough, Savattere

apparently started living large.She soon returned to New York from the Lone Star State, splitting her time

between the Upper West Side and the Hamptons, where she became a fixture on

the social scene. She was even snapped by society photographers such as Patrick McMullan and

New York Social Diary.

The source said that Marino, 51, has been in touch with his now-7-year-old

daughter.“They would have impromptu meetings, which was part of the deal,” a source said.

“Donna was always saying she had to go meet with her lawyers to go over the

scheduling and other issues A source said that Savaterre confided to close pals that the father was Marino and

showed them photographs of her and the quarterback together at restaurants and

clubs.

She later married Nahill Younis, whom she met in the Bahamas in 2009.

She also petitioned to change the name of her and Marino’s daughter from Chloe

Alexis Savattere to Chloe Alexis Younis, according to records.

A wedding announcement for the couple on a Hamptons Web site says: “Donna

was already a mother when Nahill met her, and Donna’s daughter quickly became

an important part of his life.”

She and Younis have since had a child together.

Donna was previously married to a New Jersey state trooper, a source said. But

that source added that the marriage ended before the brief fling with Marino began.

Reps for Younis declined to comment.

In addition to his Super Bowl appearance this weekend, Marino will be featured in

an ESPN documentary this spring.

Marino, who lives in Fort Lauderdale, spent decades shaping his image of a doting family man involved in children’s charities.

The former QB was so conscious about his public persona that Gossip Extra once watched him make frequent trips to the bar at a Miami Heat game for glasses of wine that he wrapped in napkins to hide the booze.

I am far from a Marino fan as a life long Jets fan, but I find it admirable that the guy was able to re-dedicate himself to his wife and family after straying in the past. 30 years with one woman and 6 happy and healthy kids is no small achievement. We all have our imperfections and his are just more public and grandiose because of the money and life style he has led. He sounds like a normal flawed human being to me.

I totally agree, anyone who's been married close to 30 years I'm sure has had their rough spots and at least he's seemed to be a supporting father, same goes with the Arnold situation. I don't condone it, but it's their business. However, I do have to agree with Jojo that their is a stark dichotomy on here where you saw people trash Rex for his fetish videos and tattoos, when by all accounts, he's 100% devoted and in love with his wife and then turn around and write this off as being Marino's personal business and not worth mentioning (not saying you are one of them, just an observation as a collective). I would imagine if this came out during Marino's playing days and he was in the spotlight, there'd be more traffic on here about it. I could care less either way, but I do see the disparity he was mentioning.

As long as Marino still hasn't won a Super Bowl, I'm cool with it.
