Usain Bolt Reveals Baby's Name and Shares Adorable Photos

by Laura Driver

Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett welcomed their baby girl in May. Usain has shared an adorable first picture of his baby daughter, revealing her name - Olympia Lightning Bolt.

The couple hosted a luxury gender reveal party in March which featured fireworks and a huge celebrity guest list, after which Bolt told fans he is set to become a "girl dad."

The sprint legend has been dating Bennett since 2014 but the pair only went public in 2016. Bolt confirmed his girlfriend was pregnant in January when he posted an Instagram photo of her in a flowing red dress cradling her baby bump. In the caption, he added the words: "'I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE."

It would seem the couple are in no rush to force little Olympia Lightning into athletics. In the past, Bolt has admitted the burden of living up to his legacy may even actively discouraging his kids from the sport. Bolt revealed: "That's going to be hard for my kid.

If they want to do it, I'm fine with it. But initially, I'm going to say don't do it, because I know the pressure that will come along with it."
