The proud dad shared a photo on social media of the little one looking lovely in a peach gown while captioning her name; Olympia Lighting Bolt.

The fastest man on the planet, the legendary Jamaican Sprinter Usain Bolt showed photos of her daughter who was born in may.

Bolt and Bennett welcomed Olympia in May, Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness announced on Twitter at the time.

He still holds world records in the 100m and 200m events and confirmed his girlfriend Bennett was expecting a daughter in an Instagram video in March, but this is the first-time images and a name have been revealed.

On Tuesday afternoon, the world-famous Olympian celebrated his girlfriend Kasi J. Bennett's birthday.
