Congratulations are in order for UFC fighter Conor McGregor and his fiancée, Dee Devlin, who advantage of the holiday glee to announce they’re growing their family by one next year.
Conor McGregor will be a father of three in 2021. The acclaimed UFC fighter took to his Instagram on December 24 to announce the news of his fiancée’s pregnancy by sharing an adorable family picture that also included their dog.

As the proud parents smiled brightly at the camera, their son Conor Jr. held a sonogram while sitting on his mom’s lap. McGregor shared his joy in the caption, adding:

“Yayyy!! Merry Christmas to you all and baby McGregor ?? Congratulations ❤.”
McGregor and Devlin have been together for 12 years but got engaged just last August. The 32-year-old UFC champion shared the news on Instagram on Devlin’s birthday, posting a pic where she flashed a huge diamond ring that matched her big smile.
She made sure to support him and encourage him, and now she gets to enjoy the fruition of his hard work.
Devlin grew up in Ireland like McGregor and met him before he became the big shot he is today. McGregor once revealed that, although they had seen each other before, the first time they talked was at a nightclub.
“I asked her to come over and we just started chatting. She seemed like a nice girl, and I like good girls," he told VIP Magazine in 2013.
Devlin revealed in the same interview that she always knew McGregor would make it big once he started training. She made sure to support him and encourage him, and now she gets to enjoy the fruition of his hard work while raising what will soon be three cute kids.
