NY Post: Dan Marino fathered child with mistress in 2005

UNDATED - NFL legend Dan Marino has admitted that he had an affair and fathered a child in 2005 with his mistress.

The New York Post reported the exclusive story. Marino admits to having the affair with a staffer at CBS television just before he was inducted into the pro football Hall of Fame.

The Post said he fathered a child and then paid the mother millions to move away and care for the girl.

Marino told the newspaper it is a private matter and that he and his wife are still married.

On Thursday, the Post said CBS released a statement saying "Dan has said all there is to say on this matter, and will be in his usual role on our broadcast Super Bowl Sunday."
