After Olympia Lightning; it’s Thunder & Saint Leo : Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennet Blessed with Twins
All-time Olympic great sprinter Usain Bolt and his partner Kasi Bennett announced on Sunday the birth of twin boys, who have been named Thunder Bolt and Saint Leo Bolt. Bolt revealed the news on social media with a Father’s Day family photo, showing a lightning bolt emoji next to each of his children’s names in the caption, without stating when the twins were born. Bennett also posted a shot of the couple posing with the twins and daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt captioned: “Happy Father’s Day to my forever love! @usainbolt You are the rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones. We love you world without end!”
The eight-time Olympic gold medalist retired in 2017, but still considered the greatest sprinter of all time. Usain Bolt is the world record holder for the men’s 100m sprint, at 9.58 seconds. He remains the 100m and 200m world record holder and bowed out of athletics as one of the world’s most iconic sports stars in 2017.The couple’s choice to spruce up their children’s names with puns follows famous exes Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Their first daughter is named North West and, like Bolt and Bennett, they also have a child named Saint.
The Jamaican sprint legend posted a picture on Instagram of the new arrivals, alongside his partner Kasi Bennett and daughter Olympia Lightning. The 34-year-old made the announcement on Father’s Day, adding three lightning bolt emojis for each of his children. It’s not known exactly when the twins were born. Bolt tried to switch to pro football and had a trial with an Australian side but couldn’t agree a contract, and in 2019 announced his career in sports was over.
The Jamaican now has a number of business interests, including an electric scooter company – also called Bolt. . He also produces music, including a recent album title, “Clockwork Riddim.” Saint Leo is the middle name of Bolt’s father. In May 2020, Bolt and Bennett welcomed their first child, daughter Olympia Lightning. Usain Bolt and Bennett did not announce publicly that they were expecting another child (or children), so the photo of the newborns came as a surprise. The couple has been together since 2014
