Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett are the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl. On Tuesday, the 33-year-old Olympic star and world’s fastest man took to Instagram to share the first official photos of his beautiful new-born. Bolt also disclosed her name to the world as Olympia Lightning Bolt.
In the caption of a beautiful photo of his girlfriend Kasi Bennett cradling the baby, Bolt gushed as he wished his partner a happy birthday.
The caption read: “I want to wish my GF @kasi.b a happy birthday and to let u know I am happy I get to spend our special day with u. I want nothing but happiness for u and will continue to do my best keeping a smile on our face. Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt, I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family. I Love you and happy 21st birthday ???..”
On her own Instagram page, Bennett shared a few other photos from the same lovely photoshoot. One set of photos of the sweet baby was captioned, “My gift… Olympia Lightning Bolt,”
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness was the first to announce the birth of the baby back in May with a tweet: “Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt (@usainbolt) and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl!”
The couple had announced in January that they were expecting. Bolt shared the news on Instagram back then with a gorgeous photo of Bennett sporting her baby bump in a stunning red gown. The caption read: “I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE.“
