It looks like baby Conor Jack McGregor has hit the ground running; not only has his photo being shared across social media but he has managed to set up his very own Instagram account.
The countdown to baby McGregor has been an exciting one. The couple have been eager to share news about the pregnancy through social media and interviews and their fans have loved every minute of it.
In January, while speaking to MMAFighting journalist and the host of The MMA Hour, Ariel Helwani, Conor shared how he was feeling about the pregnancy.
"Dee is about to have a baby - I'm looking forward to that [...] I'm in a different mindset right now. I'm happy. Everything seems to be working out perfectly for me."
"Honestly, the only time my records are going to be broken are by my own child."
Meanwhile, Dee has shared multiple photos of herself and her growing bump to her Instagram account. In the below photo she raved about Conor who threw her a baby shower to remember.
"I had the best day at my baby shower yesterday! Huge thank you to my sisters, my/Conor's sisters and Lynn Hunter for all their organising!! And of course biggest thank you to Conor who was behind it all! Thank you to everyone who came to spend the day with us and for all the presents! It was a day to remember! #makingmemories"
Last week, things began to pick up as Conor shared a photo to his Instagram of the two in the Coombe hospital. Alongside a baby emoji, he wrote: "In the hoppo not there yet."
Fans waited with baited breath for further updates but were left hanging as McGregor Jr took his time to appear.
Eventually, Conor posted a photo of Dee and baby McGregor looking happy and healthy. The post has already gained 1,356,766 likes and shows no signs of slowing down. The TIME 100 honoree captioned the photo saying:
"Dee and Junior are doing great everyone! Thank you for all the kind words, I am one proud and blessed Daddy ❤️"
Conor's father Tony spoke to the Irish Mirror to share details of the birth, saying:
"Baby Conor Jack McGregor was delivered last night at 8pm in the Coombe Hospital. He came in at 8 pounds 14 ounces. The whole family are absolutely delighted."
Soon after, Conor shared a photo of his son with the caption:
"We can land the left paw from anywhere. Who wants it."
It looks like baby Jack McGregor has hit the ground running; not only has his photo being shared across social media but he has managed to set up his very own Instagram account.
The account has no posts so far but has already gained 52.6k followers. The bio line reads "Account run by my parents - Conor McGregor and Dee Devlin."
In February 2017, Conor formed his own promotional company, McGregor Promotions, and is notorious for his ability to make headlines and self-promote.
It looks like the media savvy McGregor is expanding his business plans to include his new born son. We can't wait to see what the McGregor family do next.
Congrats Conor and Dee!
PS: We wonder will they be doing a McGregor UFC family version of The Kinsella's?!
