Inside Conor McGregor's relationship with partner Dee Devlin including tattoo and wedding plans

There are few better known couples in Ireland than Conor McGregor and partner Dee Devlin.

The pair have three children together and are seen side by side whether it be at Conor's UFC fights or attending a number of glitz and glamour events.

And the two have shared a long journey together from meeting in a Dublin nightclub to now having a family together and are set to tie the night.

McGregor met Devlin on a night out in 2008 and Dee said she fell for him straight away.

She said: "I suppose it was! He’s very funny – he always keeps me entertained and makes me laugh."

Dee supported Conor through the good and the bad as he chased his MMA dream and stuck by him and was by his side for his UFC debut in April 2013.

After his debut, McGregor stated his intentions of sharing a long and happy life with Dee.

He said: : "I’m doing this to secure my family’s future and Dee’s future. One day, I want myself and Dee to be able to chill on a beach and not have any worry in the world.

"That’s why I’m doing this. I want to be financially secure by the time I have kids. When that happens, I want to be ready."

McGregor captured his first UFC title, an interim title win against Chad Mendes back in 2015 and said of his partner at the time: "My girlfriend has been there since the start. She has helped me throughout this career. If it wasn't for her, I probably wouldn't be where I am 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."

Dee was Conor's emotional rock as he suffered a devastating defeat at the hands of Nate Diaz.

Devlin ran into the ring and embraced her boyfriend at the time.

Not too long after that fight, the pair announced that Devlin was pregnant with their first child and in May 2017 they welcomed Conor Junior.

The pair revealed in 2018 they were expecting their second child and Croia joined the family in 2019.

And Conor finally popped the question to Dee in August 2020 with wedding plans set to be announced.

Taking to Instagram at the time, he said: "What a birthday, my future wife"

The pair announced they were expecting their third child together at Christmas 2020 and in May 2021 welcomed Rian to the family.

No wedding date has been revealed for the pair but McGregor says his wedding will take place in Ireland.

He also hinted that the wedding date could be soon.

McGregor said on social media earlier this year: "The kids love you, the world loves you baby, Dee D soon to be McG, I can’t wait to marry you baby girl, keep on shining, you are our shining light, my sunshine! The love of my life.”

Dee also showed her ultimate devotion to her husband to be and got Conor's name tattooed onto her earlier this year.
