Usain Bolt has become a father after the birth of his baby daughter with partner Kasi Bennett.
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness confirmed the arrival after sending a congratulatory tweet to the couple.
“Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl,” Holness posted on Monday.
But it follows Bolt’s extravagant announcement party in March, which went ahead in Kingston, Jamaica.
The shindig included fireworks and a celebrity guest list and Bolt said in a video on social media: “I just did the reveal and I’m a girl dad.”
He then sent a warning to any future boyfriends, saying: “Any man, any boy, don’t play with me!
The 33-year-old has been with his partner for six years, with the 100m world record holder keeping the relationship away from the media.
In 2016, he said: “I’m not going to tell you who she is, I want to keep it small for now.
“Because I know when it gets out there’s going to be a lot of things to say, and I told her she can’t handle it.
“Because I’ve been through the media. I understand how you guys are – especially the British media.”
In the same year, the eight-time Olympics gold medallist mentioned that he was keen on having three children.
“I definitely want a family, though. For me, over the years, I’ve waited because I want to make sure it’s the right person.
“I’ve always said I want three kids. The other day I hung out with my buddy who has three kids and it was crazy.
“I was like, ‘Hmmmm do I really want three kids?’ But yes, yes I do. I’m sure of it.’”
Bolt holds the record for completing the 100m in the fastest time ever, recording a time of 9.58 seconds in Berlin in 2009.
The Jamaican also attempted his dream of becoming a professional footballer after scoring twice for Australian side Central Coast Mariners but left months after, abandoning his career as a result.
