Sprinting legend Usain Bolt has announced is going to be a dad for the first time.
The eight-time Olympic gold medallist shared the happy news with his 9.3 million followers on Instagram, sharing a picture of his partner, Kasi Bennett, cradling her baby bump.
Bolt, 33, wrote: “I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE. @kasi.b.”
Bennett, who has been in a relationship with the Jamaican former sprinter for several years, shared similar photographs on her own Instagram page.
In the images she is on a beach wearing a long, striking red dress, and in some holding a large bouquet of balloons.
“Our golden child. Coming soon…” Bennett said in one post.
She also described the pregnancy as the couple’s “biggest blessing” and “greatest celebration”.

The couple have kept their relationship fairly private, and are not often pictured together in public, but Bolt confirmed their romance in 2016.
The athletics star, who retired from running in 2017, is the only sprinter to win Olympic 100m and 200m titles at three consecutive Games.

He went on to pursue his dream to become a professional footballer, training with Norwegian club Stromsgodset and turning down a deal with Maltese club Valletta before joining Australian club Central Coast Mariners.
However, his A-League career lasted just eight weeks and in January 2019 he announced he was taking a step back from sport to focus on a business career.
