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.”

Just goes to show that none of us really know these entertainers as much as some of us might think we do.

We root for the public face they put out there, but in reality, it's like Facebook, only showing us what they want us to see.

Millions of dollars could have been saved if he just wore a hat...

For once a quick release doesn't help poor protection.

But at least he is still making poor receivers catch his passes.

I am hear all week. Remember to try the veal!

I see Dan is still good with the long ball. He kept his poise in the pocket. :kitten:

Also, I was expecting to see a kid dancing gif when I clicked on this thread.
