UFC lightweight champion and the golden child of the UFC, Conor McGregor, has officially become a father.

Conor Jack McGregor, was born in the Coombe Maternity Hospital last night, according to McGregor's father Tony, who spoke to the Irish Mirror.

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

Neither McGregor or Devlin have made any announcement via their social media as of late.

McGregor's last baby related post was when he updated fans via about the delay of his first son who he called a "true McGregor" for making everyone wait.

McGregor announced that his long-time girlfriend Dee Devlin was expecting at the UFC 205 post-fight press conference. He had just made history by becoming the first ever two-divisional UFC champion after defeating the former lightweight champion, Eddie Alvarez.

"I'm running from it, to be honest," McGregor said when asked about the rumors that he was expecting a child. "I am crapping me jocks with the whole thing. I don't know what to be doing with myself."

The couple has kept baby details to a minimum, but he confirmed he was having a boy in April after posting a message on Instagram.

"When my son is born I will build him up into a multiple free fighting world champion also. Just like his old man. I look forward to it."
