Dee Devlin celebrated her baby shower in typical fashion.

The 27-year-old is expecting her first child with long-term boyfriend Conor McGregor and she marked the occasion with a girls day out in Howth, north Dublin.

Dee was joined by a dozen close friends and family members for the occasion, enjoying the picturesque views at Aqua restaurant overlooking the harbour.

In contrast to the couple's normally over the top bashes, this was relatively low-key, choosing a spot away from Dublin city centre, presumably in order to maintain more privacy.

The expectant mother shared a sweet picture of her cradling her baby bump, wearing a white ribbed dress and pastel pink cardigan, thanking her other half for his support.

"I had the best day at my baby shower yesterday! Huge thank you to my sisters, my/Conor's sisters and Lynn Hunter for all their organising!! And of course biggest thank you to Conor who was behind it all! Thank you to everyone who came to spend the day with us and for all the presents! It was a day to remember! #makingmemories"

McGregor announced late last year he and Dee would be welcoming their first child and in February, he expressed fears for his baby's safety in public and warned fans not to mob him on the street.

"I’m not trying to bring a kid into that. If someone comes near me when I have my kid in my hands, like the way they come near me now, looking for pictures, someone’s gonna be badly hurt," he told GQ Magazine.

Similarly, the MMA superstar said he would be taking some time off after welcoming the new arrival to spend with his family and doesn't want their lives to become a celebrity circus.

"I don't want to be bringing a child into anything like this. I don't want any celebrity-type s***, I hate all that. I don't want my family to be like that. So that's a thing in the back of my head so I'm just going to have this baby, take a little bit of time and see what way I feel after that."

He fuelled speculation that the pair could be welcoming a son when he referred to the baby as "him" during an interview at An Experience With Conor McGregor event.
