MMA and boxing superstar has received the best possible news at the start of 2019 after he took to his Instagram to announce that he and his long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin are expecting their second child.
Conor and Dee became proud parents on May 5, 2015, as their first child, a son whom they named Conor Jack McGregor Jr was born.
McGregor dropping the happy news on his Instagram wrote, “Happy New Year everyone! 2019 we get the best gift of all.”
He posted an image of him standing along with a visibly pregnant Dee and their son Conor Jack.
He also posted another photo with his hand placed affectionately on Dee’s baby bump.
The pair has been in a relationship long before anyone knew who Conor McGregor was. They have been going strong for over a decade with Conor stating in an interview in 2015, “We have been together for eight years now. She will tell you exact dates. We’ve been together a long time. She’s been through it all with me.”
McGregor has also stated that he owes his success to Dee. He has also claimed that it is his mission in life to always keep her happy. In an interview, he said, “My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially absolutely nothing. I only had a dream that I was telling her. For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted and to travel the world with her fills me with pride. It keeps me going.”
