MMA fighter Conor McGregor announces engagement to Dee Devlin on his birthday

Conor McGregor has announced he and his long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin are engaged, sharing the happy news on his birthday. 

The mixed martial artist and boxer had more than just turning 32 to celebrate on Saturday, as he revealed he had popped the question to the mother of his children, too. 

Sharing a photo of him and Dee beaming with happiness, Conor wrote: ‘What a birthday, my future wife!’

Dee could be seen showing off the enormous diamond ring Conor had presented to her as the pair looked the picture of happiness. 

The pair have been together since 2008 – long before Conor became the superstar he is now – and share two children, three-year-old Conor Jr and one-year-old Croia. 

Conor has previously thanked Dee for sticking with him when the idea of fame and fortune was nothing but a dream. 

He told the Irish Mirror in 2017: ‘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.’

Dee added that she always had faith Conor would make it big in his sport, explaining: ‘He’s always been super confident, we always knew this was going to happen – it was nearly like we were predicting the future.

‘It’s weird for me to say but we just always knew he was going to get to this level and every few months it just keeps going and going and going and the sky is the limit.’

Conor has since announced his retirement from the sport for the third time in 
June, after returning twice.
