Multiple world record holder Usain Bolt is expecting his first child after confirming his girlfriend Kasi Bennett is pregnant.
The Jamaican sprinting legend took to Instagram to share his news. Posting a picture of Kasi holding her pregnant stomach with the caption - "I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE." to his nearly ten million followers.
Bennett, who is a model, also posted their news on Instagram. She posted photos of herself and her baby bump with the captions "our greatest celebration" in one post and "our golden child" in another - probably a reference to Bolt's vast array of gold medals.
The pair have been in a long term relationship but are yet to marry. Although back in 2016, Bolt posted a photo of his significant other on his Snapchat account with a caption "She said yes" leading to speculation that the pair are engaged.
Bolt is known for being the fastest man in the world. He holds the world record for the 100 metre sprint as well as the 200 metre sprint. In Rio 2016, he completed a 'triple triple', winning three gold medals at three separate Olympic events.
However, one of his teammates in the 4x100m relay tested positive for a banned substance, meaning that 'Lightning Bolt' had to relinquish one of his titles.
The Athletics legend announced his retirement in 2017 after failing to secure gold in the 100 metres at the World Championships, then subsequently pulling his hamstring in the relay.
Bolt has often spoke of his dream to become a professional footballer and of his love for Man United. The eight-time Olympic medalist realised his dream when he played for Manchester United in a legends charity game in 2017.
He then flirted with playing football for real. He joined Australian league side Central Coast Mariners on trial and was offered a contract.
The move wasn't well received by fans and players in the A-league, who thought it was disrespectful to the professionals who'd worked for their position. Less than two months later, Bolt left the club and declared that his sporting life was finished.
He's not done too bad, I suppose.
