Conor McGregor finally popped the question. He and longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin are engaged after 12 years together. McGregor made the announcement on Instagram on Saturday with a photo of himself and Devlin — and the giant rock he put on her finger. Seriously, this ring is enormous. "What a birthday, my future wife," McGregor wrote in the caption for the Instagram post.
The fighter, who is a two-division UFC World Champion, has long credited Devlin for his successes. "My girlfriend has been there since the start," he told the Irish Mirror in March 2016. "She has helped me throughout this career. If it wasn't for her, I probably wouldn't be where I am today." It's awesome they're going to tie the knot. "Dee is a lifesaver for me.
I wouldn't be doing this if it wasn't for her, and that's for sure. I'm doing all of this for her," he said in 2013. "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. I'm not even thinking about kids yet … but when that happens, I want to be ready."
