Conor McGregor and his family bumped into Johnny Depp this weekend while in Rome.

The UFC star and his longtime partner Dee Devlin invited the McGregor clan to the Italian capital for their third child Rian’s christening on Saturday afternoon at St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.

The Dubliner was reunited with his mother Margaret, father Tony, and sisters Erin and Aoife for the first time since before his trilogy fight with Dustin Poirier during the summer.

Conor and Dee welcomed their baby boy in May and are also parents to 4-year-old Conor Jr. and two-year-old daughter Croía.

After the christening, the McGregors bumped into Hollywood actor Johnny Depp in Rome.

Conor’s niece Taylor took to her Instagram Stories to share some snaps with the Pirates of the Caribbean star and said: “What a man!”

Taking to Instagram, the Roma head coach shared some photos of the pair meeting for the first time, including a snap of McGregor holding up an A.S. Roma jersey and another picture enjoying some whiskey.
