It doesn't get much more 2017 than this

This will soon be the most followed baby on social media.

Before his first bottle feed and dirty nappy, Conor McGregor’s new baby son already has his own Instagram account.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that McGregor’s partner Dee Devlin gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Friday, but the fighter himself is yet to break the news to the wider world.

The previous week, he had posted this image from the Coombe Hospital in Dublin.

With the news that McGregor may have finally become a father, the little fella has followed his aul’ lad straight into the world of social media.

A verified account for ‘Conor McGregor Jr.’ follows only McGregor and Devlin, while the account’s followers include Paradigm – McGregor’s management company – and his manager Audie Attar.

McGregor has been spotted around Dublin in recent weeks as he awaits the arrival of his first child. He previously warned that “someone’s gonna get badly hurt” if they approach him and his new son, so the paparazzi have given the 28-year-old a wide berth.
