Is Bolt a father?

Usain Bolt, an eight-time Olympic gold medalist, is now the joyful father of a newborn girl. The Jamaican athlete and long partner Kasi Bennett revealed their pregnancy in January and held a big gender reveal party in March. They named their daughter Taipei Bennett after Usain's hometown of Kingston, Jamaica, and his two previous children with former wife Veronica Campbell.

Bolt has been married three times before and has four children, two with each wife. His current wife Lornah Pike is the mother of his two youngest children.

He started running at a young age and always dreamed of competing in the Olympics. In 2009, he became the first runner to win multiple gold medals in one event when he captured all available men's sprint titles at the same time. He also holds the world records in the 100 meters, 200 meters, and 4x100-meter relay events.

After winning several more races this year, Bolt announced that he will retire from competition at the end of the London Games. He said it's hard to believe he'll be finishing his career as the world's best sprinter.

Is Usain Bolt expecting twins?

Usain Bolt and his fiancée, Kasi Bennett, have welcomed twins into their family. The Olympic champion announced the babies' arrival on Instagram with a heartwarming snapshot of the family of five. "You are the rock of this family and the best father to our children." "We adore you forever and ever!" he wrote in the post dated August 5.

Bolt and Bennett were engaged in April 2017 and became parents for the first time last year. The sprint king has two other children, a son named Tai and a daughter named Coretta.

Bolt made history when he became the first person to run 100 meters in under 10 seconds three times at a single Olympics - 9.79 seconds - winning gold medals for Jamaica at both Beijing 2008 and London 2012. His career scoring margin over fellow sprinter Justin Gatlin is largest in all sports - 1,519-1,408 (33 races).

He also holds the world record for the most consecutive 100 meter heats wins with 19 straight victories from Beijing through Rio de Janeiro 2016. No one else has won more than seven straight events.

Bolt's wife, Kasi Bennett, is a former basketball player who attended Columbia University. She was drafted by the WNBA's New York Liberty but never played pro ball. In 2015, she filed for divorce after just 18 months of marriage citing irreconcilable differences.

Is Usain Bolt married?

Usain Bolt and his wife, Kasi Bennett, have a daughter. Wonderful news! She was born in March 2015.

Bolt announced their happy news on Instagram, writing, "I am very proud of my wife Kasi for being able to carry such a huge responsibility." The couple has been together since 2004 when they met at the University of Florida. Bolt received a bachelor's degree in kinesiology that year while also playing football. He went on to play professional baseball before turning his attention full-time to track and field.

After retiring from competition, Bolt took up coaching and became an assistant professor at the University of South Carolina Upstate. He and Kasi married in January 2008 after dating for several years.

They've been busy parents so far. Their first child, a daughter, was born in March 2015. She is named Akili Elizabeth Bolt.

Bolt has said he wants more children. In 2016, he told BBC News, "I want at least two more kids. My wife says I'm going to get more than that but I just want at least two more kids."

What did Bol call his twins?

Usain Bolt showed off his infant twins in a lovely Father's Day shot. In the announcement, the Jamaican great disclosed for the first time the names of his new twin kids, Saint Leo Bolt and Thunder Bolt, which he and fiancée Kasi Bennett named. He said they were chosen after saints and angels.

Bolt also shared a photo of himself holding his babies for the first time. "My life changed in an instant when I held my twins for the first time," he wrote on Instagram. "I love them more than anything in this world and would do anything for them."

He added that they're healthy and doing well under the weight of such big names. "They weigh over 9 pounds each!" he exclaimed. The Olympic champion also thanked his family and friends for their support during this special time in his life.

Bol was engaged to Bennett last year and they're set to marry in July 2019 in Jamaica. The 31-year-old athlete announced the news back in January 2018 after two years of dating. At the time, he told People that he chose Bennett because she made him feel young again. "When you find someone who makes you feel young again, knows how to have fun, is easy going, and doesn't mind being around your family, then they are perfect for you," he said.
