Conor McGregor is back home and he has finally met his baby nephew Harry.

The UFC champ returned from his stay in Las Vegas to visit loved ones in Dublin and become acquainted with the new addition to his family.

Conor's sister Erin welcomed her baby boy in July, when the fighter was training for his comeback fight against Nate Diaz.

Taking to social media, the 28-year-old shared a picture of himself holding Harry in his arms.

"Got to finally meet my nephew Harry today," he wrote.

Gruelling

The MMA star, who is from Crumlin, said his gruelling work schedule is worth it in the end for the time he gets to spend with his family.

"Long days on the road are tough but coming home to family after it makes it all worthwhile."

McGregor recently set tongues wagging when he posted a photo of himself alongside long-term love Dee Devlin. He captioned it "the McGregors", leading many to wonder if they had tied the knot in secret.
