Former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor kicked off the 2019 year by celebrating the birth of his second child.

The Irish superstar and his longtime girlfriend Dee Devlin welcomed a baby girl to their family.

The newborn is the couples second child, this after their son Conor Jr. was born in May of 2017.

Conor McGregor took to his official Instagram yesterday where he shared the following photo while praising his partner and “SuperMam”, Dee Devlin.

“Heading home with my two healthy babies and an energized and healthy SuperMam ❤️ 2019 is off to the best start! Thank you for the well wishes everybody!” – Conor McGregor

According to a report from the Irish Daily Star, the McGregor and Devlin have decided to name their daughter Croia. The Irish meaning of the name is said to be “of the heart” or “Little heart”.

“Mystic Mac” was last seen in action at October’s UFC 229 event in Las Vegas, where he suffered a fourth-round submission loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov in his bid to reclaim the UFC’s lightweight championship.

Conor McGregor has stated he hopes to rematch “The Eagle” at some point in 2019.

If UFC President Dana White has his way, Conor McGregor will rematch Dustin Poirier, with the winner of that fight moving on to meet the winner of Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson.

Now with a second child, it could be a while before fight fans get to see Conor McGregor back inside the UFC octagon.
