“What a birthday, my future wife !” Conor McGregor wrote on his Instagram.

Who is Dee Devlin?

The Irish businesswoman has been with Conor since his early days as a fighter. In the past, ‘The Notorious’ one praised his girlfriend for taking good care of him when he had nothing.

Devlin is often credited for Conor’s success. She has been with him during the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. Not long after abandoning his plumbing tools to lace up the 4oz gloves, the Crumlin-born lightweight met Devlin for the first time in a club.

Although he had noticed her before, the Irishman had his first conversation in the club. He felt that Devlin was a “nice girl.” Hence, he took their relationship to the next level.

 

“I asked her to come over, and we just started chatting. She seemed like a nice girl, and I like good girls,” McGregor said. (h:t– VIP Magazine)

Devlin was also impressed with McGregor’s work ethic. And according to Devlin, she found Conor funny. What’s more, the Walkinstown-born Devlin admitted that she felt that there was an instant spark between the two.“He’s very funny – he always keeps me entertained and makes me laugh,” Devlin said.
