Former UFC star Conor McGregor has announced his engagement to long-term partner Dee Devlin.

The 32 year-old revealed the news with a photo of the pair in buoyant mood and Devlin wearing her new ring.

McGregor decided to pop the question on his girlfriend’s 32nd birthday with the caption: "What a birthday, my future wife !"

The couple have been together since 2007 when they met in a nightclub and have two children together.

Conor Jr was born in May 2017 and then daughter Croia in January last year.

McGregor recently announced his retirement from mixed martial arts for the third time after 12 years as a professional.

In his final fight, the Irish superstar destroyed Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone in just 40 seconds.

But the coronavirus pandemic stalled McGregor as he was not able to swiftly return to the octagon as planned.

And then in June the fighter officially told fans he was hanging up his gloves.

He said: "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."
