Jamaican sprinting legend Usain Bolt and his longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett have welcomed their first child — a bay girl. They welcomed their bundle of joy on May 17 but the news only just got out.
The couple have shared moments from their journey to becoming parents with the public, starting with a pregnancy reveal on social media in January.
In March, the couple had an elaborate gender reveal in Jamaica, where it was revealed that the Jamaican sprinter would become a “#GirlDad” in short order.
Jamaican Prime Minister have also congratulated the couple on the birth of their first child.
Bolt and Kasi Bennett, an entrepreneur who runs a marketing agency, have been together for over five years, but it wasn’t until 2016, when Bolt confirmed their relationship, saying they had just “gotten really serious.”
