This weekend, Conor McGregor and his long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin announced that their baby boy, Conor Jack McGregor Jr., had officially been born at Coombe Women and Infants Hospital in Dublin, and according to McGregor's social media posts, both mom and Jr. are doing just fine.
This is a huge day for Conor McGregor, because as we know, he said he would be taking a hiatus from fighting until his child was born, because Devlin often becomes very stressed and anxious around fight-time, and he didn't want to put her and the baby through that stress during her pregnancy, a move that no one can knock him for, because family is much more important than fighting.
McGregor Jr. is going to have one hell of a life, with his dad being one of the greatest fighters in the world, and spoiling everyone close to him in the process. I am curious to see if Jr. follows in his dad's footsteps, or if he stays away from the fight life. He surely will have the genetics and if that lefthand is anything like his dad's, he may have a real future in mixed martial arts.
I am very happy for McGregor and Dee Devlin, as these two have been together for as long as McGregor can remember, and with their son being born healthy and happy, we may see things get rolling even faster in terms of McGregor getting back into the fighting world.
