Usain Bolt & Longtime Girlfriend Kasi Bennett Welcome First Child


Usain Bolt and his longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, are officially first-time parents.

On Monday (May 18), Jamaica's Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced on Twitter that the couple welcomed a baby girl.

"Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt (@usainbolt) and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl," he wrote alongside a photo of the track star.

Usain and Kasi have yet to announce the name of their daughter.

The pair, who have been dating for nearly seven years, revealed that they were expecting back in January. "I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE," Usain captioned a stunning photo of Kasi cradling her burgeoning belly.

Kasi also shared the news on her Instagram, posting a series of posts from her maternity shoot. “Our biggest blessing..,” she captioned the first shot that showed her beaming in a red maxi dress. “Our greatest celebration…,” she captioned the second photo. And lastly, “Our golden child ❤️ Coming soon…” she wrote.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
