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.
Bolt, 33 years old, who retired from athletics in 2017, he is still the fastest man in history. The 9.58-second world record that reached over 100 meters at the Berlin World Championships in 2009 is still valid, as is his world record of 200 million seconds of 19.19 seconds, also achieved in Berlin.
Bolt, 11 times world champion, Bolt is the only man to win three 100m Olympic titles and won 23 major gold medals during a glorious career.
He completed the historic “triple triple” in Rio 2016 by winning 100m, 200m and 4x100m in gold relay in three successive Olympics. However, in 2017 Bolt was deprived of his 4x100m gold medal from the 2008 Beijing Games after teammate Nesta Carter tested positive for a banned substance.
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.
