All eyes will be on Conor McGregor when he takes on Dustin Poirier in a trilogy fight at UFC 264. The Irishman will be looking forward to getting his hands raised come the 10th of July. With the fight rapidly approaching, both the fighters have been sweating it out harder than ever.
This time around, McGregor will be without his better half cheering him on at the stadium. Conor McGregor’s wife Dee Devlin will not be present at the T-Mobile Arena, and instead, she will be cheering for her long-time partner from her home, with her kids. Dee Devlin has been a pillar of support in the life of McGregor, helping the Irishman get through the highs and lows.
Who is Dee Devlin?
Dee Devlin was born on the 9th of August, 1987 in the suburb of Walkinstown in Dublin, Ireland. She didn’t have that much of a liking for academics and hence dropped out of high school at the age of 15. She then juggled several jobs as a waitress and an amateur model during her late teens. Devlin has two sisters Sarah and Cathy. Sarah is a supermodel signed to Assets Modelling Agency.
Conor once said of Devlin, “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.”
How did Conor McGregor’s girlfriend meet the fighter?
McGregor and Devlin first locked eyes at a Nightclub in Dublin, way back in 2008. It was a time when McGregor was financially struggling – he had just decided to pursue MMA after leaving his plumbing job. It was instant love, and the pair moved to McGregor’s parents’ attic to stay until they could make some decent cash.
It has been thirteen years since they first met, and the pair have been going strong until today. McGregor never fails to credit Dee Devlin for staying with him during his rough times. The pair got engaged in 2020.
How many kids do Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin have?
Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin have three kids. Their first child, a son, named Conor Jack McGregor was born on the 6th of May in 2017. The couple recently celebrated his 4th birthday at a grand birthday party. Their second child, a daughter named Croia was born in 2019.
And more recently, on the 17th of May, the couple welcomed their third child; this time another son. They named him Rian McGregor.
