Conor McGregor is about to get married to his longtime girlfriend, Dee Devlin, he announced Saturday on Instagram.
McGregor posted a picture of him and Devlin – who plays a big ring – with the caption, “What a birthday, my future wife!” Devlin’s 33rd birthday is on Sunday.
McGregor, 32, has two children with Devlin, Conor Jack McGregor Jr., born May 2017 and Croia McGregor, born January 2019.
The couple have been together since 2008, sharing the remarkable promotion of McGregor from a plumber apprentice and amateur boxer to becoming the world̵7;s most famous MMA fighter. McGregor has repeatedly viewed Devlin as an important reason for his success and called her his “queen”. Devlin also plays a role in several of McGregor’s businesses.
McGregor has been congratulated on the news by his longtime coach, John Kavanagh, and teammate, Dillon Dannis.
In June, McGregor announced his retirement for the third time in his career, thanks for the support of his fans. According to UFC President Dana White, very few people in the MMA industry expect the decision to continue, even though the former two-tier champion will not rematch this year, according to UFC President Dana White.
McGregor returned to the ring in January after a year of sacking with a first-half win over Donald Cerrone. He called for a rematch with champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, who sent him in 2018, and invited pits against Jorge Masvidal and Anderson Silva. White opened up the possibility that he could face the winner in the upcoming championship between Nurmagomedov and interim champion Justin Gaethje, which will take place in October at UFC 254.
