Hot-tempered Miami Dolphins legend and TV football analyst Dan Marino confessed to a torrid 2005 affair that produced a now 7-year-old love child with a former CBS production assistant after the ex-QB’s sneak was caught by the New York Post.
“This is a personal and private matter,” Mr. Marino said in a statement to the New York Post. “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.”
The news surfaces just days before Mr. Marino hosts Sunday’s pre-game Super Bowl alongside ex-players Boomer Esiaison and Shannon Sharpe.
“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.” he wrote, according to the Post report.
Despite never having won the Super Bowl, Marino is considered among the best quarterbacks to ever play the game.
