Inside Conor McGregor's relationship with Dee Devlin as they prepare to marry

Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin have been together for some 14 years and are set to tie the knot in the future.

Dee is always cageside for McGregor's fights and they regularly attend glitz and glamour events, including the Cannes Film Festival in southern France earlier this year.

It has been quite the journey for the pair who met in a Dublin nightclub all the way back in 2008.

Speaking on what attracted to her to the MMA fighter, Dee said: "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.

After his UFC debut in 2013, 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 belt, the interim featherweight title 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 in March 2016.

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.

The couple recently returned to Ireland after McGregor finished filming in the Dominican Republic alongside Jake Gyllenhaal his role in the remake of 1980's classic Road House.
