Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett welcome twin boys

MPHO RANTAO

OLYMPIC runner Usain Bolt and partner Kasi Bennett have welcomed two new members to the family, elevating their eldest daughter, Olympia Bolt’s, role to big sister. 

Bolt celebrated Father’s Day with a post on Instagram where he shared the news with a photo of his family from a photo shoot, including their one-year-old daughter, and first glimpses of their newborn twins named Saint Leo and Thunder. 

His partner, Bennett, posted her own tribute to the Olympic sprinter, sharing more footage from their family photoshoot, calling him “the rock of this family”.

“Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! @usainbolt” she posted. 

“You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end! (sic)”

Bolt and Bennett met back in 2014, but only went public with their relationship in 2018. 

The Jamaican couple welcomed Olympia in 2020, who turned one recently, but neither have released information on the exact birth date of their twin boys.

The fastest man on the planet won eight Olympic golds throughout his career, including in the 100m and 200m at the London 2012 Games. He hung up his boots in 2017, which will make the Tokyo Olympics the first Olympic Games without his participation since his debut. 

Despite being retired, Bolt still holds the 100m and 200m world records.
