Who is Dee Devlin, Conor McGregor’s girlfriend?
Conor McGregor is going out with long-term girlfriend Dee Devlin.
Devlin has been dating McGregor for more than eight years now and the pair recently had a baby, Conor Jack McGregor.
She comes from Dublin, like the UFC star, though from Walkinstown, not Crumlin.
The Irish stunner is McGregor’s No1 fan and even quit her job to be able to support him by travelling with him.
The UFC champ then hired her as an official member of his team, putting her in charge of his finances. Devlin also helps her other half train.
McGregor insists he owes his career to his devoted partner.
In November, he told the Irish Mirror: “My girlfriend worked very hard throughout the years and stuck by me when I had essentially nothing.
“For me to be able to take her out of work, give her everything she’s ever wanted and to travel the world with, fills me with pride.”
Devlin told ESPN: “I definitely try to help him out all the time, even without realising it – especially around a fight because it’s such a tough time with his weight.
“I cook, clean, pack his gym bag, all that kind of stuff.”
In 2015, after his stellar win against Chad Mendes, Dee posted an emotional tribute to her partner.
Her Instagram post read: “To say that I am proud is a MAJOR understatement!
“I am so on cloud 9 right now I can’t even put it into words! Thank you to every single person who made the trip out to Vegas to support Conor last night!
“The place was absolutely buzzin! And to all of the fans at home who also had a big part to play in making this event so special.
“Hours upon hours, years upon years of hard work and complete dedication to his craft accumulated last night.
“I am so grateful right now it’s overwhelming. We did it babe! I love you more than anything.”
