Former UFC featherweight and lightweight champion Conor McGregor announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin on Saturday.

McGregor posted a picture on Instagram of the couple, showing Devlin wearing an engagement ring.

"What a birthday, my future wife!" he wrote.

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:
