Conor McGregor shares snap of son Rian in toy car on Instagram as UFC star peeks inside son’s first Christmas
CONOR McGREGOR shared photos of his newborn son Rian enjoying his first Christmas on Instagram.
The UFC star welcomed the birth of her third child with fiancee Dee Devlin earlier this year.
The former two-weight world champion already has a son named Conor Jr and a daughter named Croia.
And he photographed the latest addition to the McGregor clan having fun in a toy car next to a Santa statue.
In the caption, McGregor wrote: “On Rían’s 1st Christmas we are buzzing!
Merry Christmas to everyone.”
McGregor is currently out of action as he recovers from the broken leg he suffered in his last fight with Dustin Poirier earlier this year.
He spent a Christmas evening with Devlin and members of his family at his Black Forge Inn pub in Drimnagh.
And UFC president Dana White believes he’ll be ready to return to action in the Octagon next summer.
He said: “The guy has a lot of money, but he’s still very passionate about fighting.
“Excited to come back, and he’s doing whatever it takes to prepare to play again. He’s kinda looking to come back.
“If all goes well with the healing of his leg, he should fight this summer.”
McGregor has called for a third fight with former rival Nate Diaz when he is fit again to return to MMA action.
The two fighters faced off in two epic competitions in 2016, with each fighter achieving a victory.
White has said he’s ready to make the long-awaited trilogy fight between the two men on condition that Diaz wants him too.
McGregor’s coach John Kavanagh has also said he would love to see the fight as he believes McGregor and Diaz are perfect rivals for each other.
He said: “Look, the Nate trilogy is like Batman vs Joker, they’re going to go against each other forever.
“They’re just perfectly made opponents, it’s a lot of fun building, and there’s respect, I won’t say it’s reluctantly.
“They shoot each other, but there’s also a nod to each other because they’re both warriors and great fighters. It would be nice to see.”
