Former Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt has announced the arrival of his twins with his partner Kasi Bennett! The Olympian shared the exciting news on Instagram on Father’s Day. Such a great day to celebrate!
It’s boys! The couple has welcomed twin sons to the family. Usain and Kasi welcomed their first child last year and gave her a truly legendary name: Olympia Lightning Bolt. For their sons, the couple continued the trend with uniquely beautiful names: Thunder Bolt and Saint Leo Bolt. Thunder, of course, is a fun play-on-words while Saint Leo shares a name with his father, whose middle name is Saint Leo.
Usain, who is considered to be the greatest sprinter of all time, and Kasi did not previously reveal that they were expecting. They also did not share when their sons were born. When the couple welcomed Olympia, they had announced her birth in May, the same month she was born, but waited two months before revealing her name.

Kasi shared her own series of posts announcing the news, including a black and white video from their family photoshoot. In the video, the couple is seen holding hands and talking while the camera zooms out to slowly reveal the couple surrounded by their children. In another post, she shared a Father’s Day message to Usain. “Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end!”
Congratulations to Usain and Kasi on the birth of their twins!
