Dee Devlin has been important in Conor McGregor's success.
Conor McGregor often attributes his success to his long-time partner and fiance Dee Devlin. Devlin has been present in McGregor's corner way before his ascension into a household name.
"My girlfriend has been there from the start," McGrgeor told Ariel Helwani in 2015. "She's helped me throughout this career. If it wasn't for her, I would not be where I am today."
On multiple occasions, McGregor praised Devlin for supporting him when he was a former plumber's apprentice with big MMA dreams. Now, as the biggest star of the sport and one of the highest-earning athletes, he treats her comfort with utmost importance.
"She stood by me when I essentially had nothing," McGregor said. "I only had a dream that I was telling her [about]. For me to give her everything she ever wanted, that fills me with pride."
Dee Devlin's personal life with Conor McGregor
According to Page Six, Devlin grew up right down the street from McGregor in Walkinstown, Dublin. She was one of three daughters in her family and dropped out of high school during her teens. Over the years, Devlin has worked as a model and waitress. She met McGregor in 2008 and worked several jobs to support him and his training.
"We met at a friend's party way way back," McGregor said. "The usual, social media, a like here and a like there, a little message," he added about his approach.
It was McGregor's comedic persona, ambition, and work ethic that attracted Devlin to him.
"He’s very funny," Devlin told VIP Magazine. "He always keeps me entertained and makes me laugh."
“He was already training when I met him,” she added. “So I really admired his dedication to that, too."
McGregor's rise to fame meant his and Devlin's lives changed over the years. When McGregor started making a name for himself, Devlin quit her temporary job and began managing McGregor's team. Until now, Devlin plays a big part in managing McGregor's finances and busy schedule.
Outside her work for her partner's camp, Devlin works as a social media influencer. She is also widely considered a style icon by her social media followers.
Devlin and McGregor have three kids, Conor Jr., Croia, and Rian.
The pair got engaged in August 2020. However, the wedding date is yet to be determined.
