The National Enquirer dropped a bombshell story Wednesday on — and about — “60 Minutes” anchor-reporter veteran Steve Kroft.

The tabloid details a three-year affair that Kroft, 69, who is married to journalist Jennet Conant, 55, has been having with New York lawyer Lisan Goines.

The CBS newsman first met Goines at a hotel in New York in 2011, according to the story. One thing led to another, from hotel romps to racy sexting.

In one text he wrote to her: “…let me devour you.” And in another he said he’d been working late and ordered food, but would “rather be eating your pudding.” Another detail: He liked to pour champagne on a certain body part of hers and drink it up.

Meet-ups between Kroft and Goines, who is also married, happened in New York and Washington.

In a statement to Page Six, Kroft verified the report and made a public apology.

“I had an extramarital affair that was a serious lapse of personal judgment and extremely hurtful to my wife and family, and for that I have nothing but regret,” Kroft said. “My wife and I are committed to each other and are working hard to get past this, and consider it a private matter.”

Kroft and Conant have one son.
