Conor McGregor is a dad! On Friday the 28-year-old UFC superstar’s longtime girlfriend, Dee Devlin, gave birth to the couple’s first child, a boy, at the Coombe Maternity Hospital in Dublin. Named Conor Jack, he weighed in at a whopping eight pounds, 14 ounces. So unlike his dad he’s big for his age.

McGregor’s father, Tony, confirmed the news to the Daily Mail.

“We’ve experienced this recently with our eldest daughter and there’s no better feeling in the world than being a grandparent,” Tony told the Daily Mail. “The parents are absolutely over the moon and everyone is healthy.”

On Sunday, Conor McGregor gave the world its first look at his baby boy, and in the caption he didn’t sound anything like the truculent Irishman we’ve grown to know and love:

Dee and Junior are doing great everyone! Thank you for all the kind words, I am one proud and blessed Daddy ❤️

But of course, he was back to his old self in the caption of the second photo:

We can land the left paw from anywhere. Who wants it.

McGregor has been taking a break from fighting while awaiting the birth of little Conor Jr, though he’s still managed to make plenty of headlines. There is no word yet as to when we can expect to see him back in the octagon. But rest assured it probably won’t be too long.
