The news was first publicly announced by Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness on Twitter on Monday.
“Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl!” he said in a tweet.
The Jamaican raced his last competitive race at the 2017 World Cup in London, where he finished third in the 100m. He had a short career as a footballer, joining the Australian Central Coast Mariners team in 2018.
Bolt scored two goals on his full debut in a pre-season friendly, but left the club before making an official appearance after the two sides failed to agree on a deal.
