For UFC superstar Conor McGregor, that woman is Dee Devlin, who has been with The Notorious since the start of his MMA career and who has stood by him in the countless storms that he has faced as MMA’s biggest star.
Who is Dee Devlin?
Born on August 9, 1987, to a serviceman and homemaker in Walkinstown, Dublin, Ireland, where she grew up with her sisters Sarah and Cathy. Devlin dropped out of high school and took odd jobs to earn a living. It was when she worked as a waitress at a nightclub that she was introduced to Conor McGregor by mutual friends. At that time, McGregor was only 19 and had just quit his plumbing job and began to take his MMA career seriously.
The two hit it off right away and it didn’t take long until they made their relationship official. After more than a decade, Conor proposed to Dee on her 33rd birthday on August 9, 2020. Of course, she said ‘yes’, and although no date has been pencilled for the big day, McGregor said in 2021 that it’s going to be “extravagant” and it’s going to happen in Ireland.
A Fashion Star in Ireland
Since she appeared in the limelight, Dee Devlin has become a fashion star in Ireland. In 2016, Devlin bagged the “Most Stylish Newcomer” award at the Peter Mark VIP Style Awards in Dublin. With 1.9 million Instagram followers, Dee Devlin has become a social influencer and uses social media to promote her style while also earning extra income.
Since McGregor’s rise in MMA, Dee has been hands-on as a member of his team. She is involved in both Conor’s management and promotional teams while also assisting him as one of the managers in his businesses, most notably the Proper No. Twelve whiskey brand.
Dee Devlin is pregnant with Baby No. 4
Last week, Conor McGregor announced that Dee is pregnant and that they are expecting another baby soon. The Irishman shared the news during an appearance at the Live with Kelly and Mark show. The couple already have three kids.
Dee gave birth to Conor Jack Jr. on May 8, 2017, at Dublin’s Coombe Maternity Hospital. The couple’s first child weighed 8 lbs, 14 oz. In January 2019, Devlin delivered their daughter Croia Mairhead. Dee’s second son Rian was born in May 2021. Neither Conor nor Dee has announced when baby McGregor number four is expected to arrive.
