Who is Conor McGregor’s Girlfriend, Dee Devlin?

Conor McGregor is an Irishman famous for his MMA achievements, and he has had the support of his long-time girlfriend, Dee Devlin, throughout his career.

In fact, Devlin has been in his corner long before he rose to fame, and the two are growing their family together as McGregor continues his rise to the top

Here’s what we know about the pair, their relationship, and how they met.

While the exact date they met isn’t clear, we know that McGregor and Devlin have been together for a long time. Back in 2015, McGregor explained that the pair had been together for eight years. 

“We have been together for eight years now. She will tell you exact dates. We’ve been together a long time. She’s been through it all with me.” 

Like McGregor, Devlin is proud to be Irish. She is originally from Walkinstown in Dublin. When she quit her job so that she would be able to travel more freely with McGregor, he hired her to be an official part of his team.

She now manages the finances and helps the star train between fights. She is also a dedicated supporter of the fighter on social media. 

The pair have weathered some storms 

The internet loves a rags-to-riches story, and perhaps that’s why a rumor spread that Devlin took McGregor in when he was homeless. The story, however, is not true.

What is true is that McGregor was a plumber who decided the life of a day laborer was not for him when he quit his job, moved in with his parents, and went all in on his athletic dreams. He had not yet made much progress in his career when he met Devlin at a club. 

While the part about his homelessness is not true, Devlin has been an incredibly supportive partner. She’s stayed by his side through thick and thin. When Rita Ora tweeted out a picture suggesting she was on a “date night” with McGregor, many people were quick to jump to Devlin’s defense.

However, Devlin herself kept quiet and continued to show support for McGregor through the controversy. 

They have a growing family together

Devlin and McGregor welcomed a son, Conor Jr., in May of 2017. In January of 2019, they had a daughter named Croia. This growing family is a sign of how committed the couple are to one another, and McGregor is quick to credit Devlin with his rise to success. “She has helped me throughout this career. If it wasn’t for her, I probably wouldn’t be where I am today,” he explained.

Indeed, Devlin can be seen as McGregor’s number one fan. While there are plenty of celebrities posting on social media about McGregor, Devlin is a consistent source of love and support.  

Whether she’s posting to wish him good luck before a big fight or supporting his whiskey brand, she’s constantly promoting his image and showing the world that she is 100% behind her partner. 

She also regularly posts pictures of their family together, creating an image of McGregor as a devoted father and partner. 

Devlin has been with McGregor throughout his entire rise to fame, and she seems well-equipped to make the transition into fame with him. Her constant support and public devotion as well as her spot on his professional team make it clear that she’s an integral part of his success.

Whether it’s raising their children together or working to promote McGregor’s next big move, it’s obvious that this pair has a plan to work together.
