    Usain Bolt introduces daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt to the world, raises the bar for celebrity baby names

    Synopsis

    It's the most fitting name.​

    Bolt shared pictures of his daughter to wish girlfriend Kasi Bennett on her birthday.
    The fastest man on Earth couldn't have chosen a more apt name for his daughter. Usain Bolt took to social media to introduce the world to Olympia Lightning Bolt (just the word play we didn't know we needed), born in May to the eight-time Olympic medallist and his girlfriend Kasi Bennett.

    Pictures of the couple's first child are winning hearts and the Internet, as is the heart-warming caption Bolt penned alongside them in honour of Bennett's birthday.

    "I want nothing but happiness for u and will continue to doing my best keeping a smile on ur face. Now we have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt I look forward to what the future will bring for us but be reassured that I will be the ROCK for this family," Bolt wrote.


    Bennett also shared pictures of their daughter, calling the little one her 'gift'.
