Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin welcome baby boy into the world, immediately create Instagram account


It has happened! Dee Devlin has given birth and UFC megastar Conor McGregor has officially become a father. McGregor’s son, Conor Jack McGregor, was born last night (Fri., May 5, 2017) at Coombe Maternity Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, per a report by the Irish Mirror. McGregor Jr. weighed in at 8lb 14oz.

“There’s great news for the McGregor’s and the Devlins,” said McGregor’s father, Tony McGregor. "Baby Conor Jack McGregor was delivered last night at 8 p.m. in the Coombe Hospital.

"We’ve experienced this recently with our eldest daughter and there’s no better feeling in the world than being a grandparent. The parents are absolutely over the moon and everyone is healthy."

McGregor and Devlin initially hinted at the birth of their first child when they created a verified Conor McGregor Jr. Instagram account, which already has over 17,000 followers.

Insane, right?

While McGregor and Devlin deserve all the congratulations in the world, fight fans can’t help wonder if the birth of Conor Jr. will speed up Mystic Mac’s return to action, whether that be in the Octagon or the boxing ring. But for now, let the man enjoy this life-changing event.
