According to the New York Post:

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

This news comes just days before Marino is supposed to co-host CBS' coverage of the Super Bowl.

Marino has admitted to the affair.  He and his wife have been married for 28 years and have six children together. He said:

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.”
