Not long after he said he was leaving the UFC in 2020, Conor McGregor shared some exciting news: he and his longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin were finally getting married. “The Notorious One” posted the happy news on social media on Devlin’s 33rd birthday, along with a photo of the couple showing off Devlin’s huge engagement ring. He wrote in the post’s caption, “What a birthday, my future wife!”
The UFC star and Devlin have been together for more than ten years and have three kids together: sons Conor Jack Jr. and Rian and a daughter named Croia. McGregor has said that Devlin is his biggest fan and that he has believed in him from the start. In 2013, he told VIP “Since I began playing this game, she has helped me every day. She would take me to the gym and listen to me talk about my dreams. Dee has helped me a lot. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t do this.”
Even though he is very open about how much he loves Devlin, not everyone knows their history or how he met his fiancee who is not in show business. In 2017, McGregor said it happened in the most “normal” way on RTÉ One’s “The Late Late Show” with Ryan Tubridy…
Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin met at a nightclub
Early on in his career as a mixed martial artist, Conor McGregor met his future wife, Dee Devlin. In 2008, the Irish fighter had just quit his job as an apprentice plumber to follow his dream of fighting in the UFC. He told VIP about the first time he and Devlin ran into each other. McGregor said, “I knew her a little bit before, but I think the first time I really talked to her was when I saw her in a nightclub.” “I invited her over, and we just started talking.”
Devlin, for her part, said that she was also attracted to McGregor right away. She said, “He’s very funny, and he always makes me smile and laugh.” “When I met him, he was already working out, so I also admired how hard he worked at that.” Later, they started talking on the social networking site Bebo, and the rest is history.
Since then, Devlin and McGregor have built a strong relationship and stayed by each other’s sides as McGregor fought his way to the top of the UFC and became one of the most famous fighters in its history. McGregor said that his success would not have been possible without the help of his longtime partner Devlin. He did this to show how important Devlin is to him. He said, “If it weren’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am now.”
Conor McGregor can’t wait to marry Dee Devlin
Conor McGregor has always hoped that he and his longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin would have a good life together. In 2015, when he told VIP why he was in the UFC, the MMA champion talked about how he would share his life with his fiancee. He said, “I’m doing this to make sure my family and Dee have a good future.” “I hope that one day Dee and I can just hang out on a beach and not have to worry about anything. I’m doing this because of that.” Devlin said she has never had any doubts about McGregor or his plans for their future. “We believe in the “Law of Attraction,” and we’ve always thought that he would make it to the UFC one day. Now that he has, he has shown me that I was right “she told me. “I’ve always been behind him, so I’m glad it worked out for him and for us, too.”
After hearing that they were getting engaged, McGregor said he was looking forward to getting married to Devlin and spending the rest of his life with her and their kids. In a touching post on social media for Devlin’s 35th birthday, the UFC superstar said that he can’t wait for that special moment to finally happen. In August 2022, he wrote on Instagram, “The kids love you, the world loves you baby, Dee D will soon be McG.” “I can’t wait to marry you, baby girl. Keep shining, because you are our shining light, my sunshine. The one I love most.” Aww!
