Pictures of Usain Bolt’s daughter Olympia
In the cute pictures, Baby Olympia is seen flaunting a pretty pink dress and a hairband too. She looks surprised and is gazing at the camera. The name has the words ‘Lightning Bolt,’ which is also the name given to Usain by his fans. According to a name book, Olympia is originally a Greek name. It translates to the term “from Mount Olympus.” So, there is a dual reference with Mount Olympus as well as the Olympic game. Altogether, the name Olympia has the aura of a Goddess and flavor of athleticism.
Just like Olympia’s other sports star, Serena Williams named her daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. when she was born in 2017. The news of the birth of Usain Bolt’s baby was announced by none other than the Prime Minister of Jamaica back on May 18. He took to his Twitter account to write a short and sweet note. He congratulated Usain Bolt and Girlfriend Kasi Bennett for their new parenthood. The tweet came with a throwback picture of Usain and Kasi from 2017. It was just before the announcement of Usain’s retirement. The former sprinter announced that he and Kasi were expecting their first baby back in January this year. The post again came with a picture in which Kasi looked beautiful while cradling her baby bump. She was on the beach and was wearing a gorgeous red dress. Usain tweeted announcing that a queen or king was about to step into their life.
Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett
Bennett and Bolt have been in a relationship for quite a few years now. Although in the beginning both of them were secretive about the relationship, Usain later made it public in 2016. In an interview with the People’s Magazine in 2016, he revealed that his relationship was very serious. He added that he would love to have three children. Bolt said in the interview that they were pretty serious about the relationship, and so he was trying to relax and take one step at a time. He also said that he was waiting for the last couple of years to make sure if they were the right people for each other.
