The UFC World Champion's post was filled with sweet messages from his followers and friends. "Congratulations," Jenni "JWoww" Farley commented with heart-eyes emojis. Brittany Palmer responded, "Amazing!!! Congrats to you both."
George Lockhart replied with three fire emojis, "Congrats!!!!!"
As some fans know, McGregor and Devlin have been together for 12 years. The two began dating in 2008, just before the athlete skyrocketed to fame in the MMA world, and are now proud parents to two kids: 3-year-old Conor Jr. and 19-month-old daughter Croia.
News of the pair's engagement also comes nearly two months after McGregor announced his retirement for the third time in his career.
"Hey guys I've decided to retire from fighting," the athlete began his Twitter post on Sunday, June 7. "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."
Last March, he shared a similar message with his fans about the future of his fighting career.
"Hey guys quick announcement, I've decided to retire from the sport formally known as 'Mixed Martial Arts' today," he wrote at the time. "I wish all my old colleagues well going forward in competition. I now join my former partners on this venture, already in retirement. Proper Pina Coladas on me fellas!"
With his retirement, that means McGregor and Devlin have plenty of time to plan their wedding together.
