Mixed martial arts star Conor McGregor and his girlfriend, Dee Devlin, announced the birth of their son Friday night, the Irish Mirror reported.

Conor Jack McGregor was born at Coombe Maternity Hospital in Dublin, the Mirror reported. The infant weighed 8 pounds, 14 ounces.

McGregor posted photos of his son on Instagram and Twitter. “We can land the left paw from anywhere. Who wants it,” the reigning Ultimate Fighting Championship lightweight champion tweeted.

The elder McGregor took time off from MMA competition after knocking out Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in September.

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