The couple has two children together—Conor Jack McGregor Jr., born in May 2017, and Croia McGregor, born in January 2019.

McGregor and Devlin started dating in 2008, per MMA Fighting.

The 32-year-old Irishman last fought in January when he scored a knockout win over Donald Cerrone just 40 seconds into the opening round. It was his first bout since October 2018.

In June, he announced his intention to retire from fighting:

Conor McGregor @TheNotoriousMMA

Hey guys I’ve decided to retire from fighting. Thank you all for the amazing memories! What a ride it’s been! Here is a picture of myself and my mother in Las Vegas post one of my World title wins! Pick the home of your dreams Mags I love you! Whatever you desire it’s yours ❤️ https://t.co/Dh4ijsZacZ

Although it'd be a surprise if he's stepped inside the Octagon for the last time—he's retired and returned multiple times—UFC's longtime top draw isn't in the company's imminent plans, as president Dana White recently reiterated to TMZ Sports.

For now, McGregor's got a wedding to plan.
