On Christmas Day, Conor McGregor and his fiancee, Dee Delvin shared the gift of upcoming life. The UFC fighter posted a picture on Instagram of his family wearing matching pajamas in front of their Christmas tree. Their oldest child, Conor Jack Jr, holds up an image of Delvin’s ultrasound. Also pictured is the couple’s second child, Croia who turns two in January, and their dog, Hugo.
“Happy Christmas everyone, from my family to yours,” McGregor posts in the caption with a heart and a baby emoji. “So much to look forward to in 2021.”
The new baby is not the only thing McGregor has to look forward to in 2021. McGregor will fight Dustin Poirer in a highly anticipated rematch this coming year. YouTuber Jake Paul has also challenged McGregor to a fight after Paul knocked out former NBA player, Nate Robinson.
Conor McGregor popped the question to his long-time lover back in August, just days before Delvin’s birthday. He shared the news in an Instagram post, similar to with his third child. “What a birthday, my future wife,” he said in the caption. The two have not yet announced wedding plans, but with two children and a third on the way, it hardly matters.
Conor McGregor and Dee Delvin’s Love Story
The adorable couple has been dating for over a decade at this point, falling in love back in Conor’s home in Dublin. They met for the first time in a night club, and after chatting it up, both felt a spark.
Of course, at the time, Conor McGregor had not become the global MMA superstar. When Delvin met him, McGregor was nothing more than a humble plumber with dreams of fighting on a bigger scale.
Throughout his journey, Dee supported Conor McGregor both emotionally and financially. That is, of course, until McGregor made enough for her to quit her job and for them to travel the world and start a family together. Conor admits that their love and trust in each other was the catalyst for getting him where he is today.
“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,” McGregor said of Dee Delvin. “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. We’ve been together for a long time. She’s been through it all with me.”
