Jamaican sprint legend Usain Bolt has announced the arrival of his twin boys both of whom he has named Thunder Bolt and Saint Leo Bolt, BBC reports.
The 34-year-old took to his Instagram handle on Sunday, June 20, which was widely celebrated as Father’s Day, posting a picture of the family with a lightning bolt emoji next to each of his children's names.
Yahoo also reports that his partner Kasi Bennet grinned for the photograph alongside the new arrivals and their and one-year-old daughter Olympia.
However, the couple did not give details of when exactly the babies were born as Bennet also posted a photo with the babies on her own account with the caption:
"The rock of this family and the greatest daddy to our little ones."
Bolt and Bennet welcomed the arrival of their first child Bennet in May 2020 and it took about two months before they announced her name as Olympia.
Right from the time she was pregnant with their first child, Bolt updated his followers on social media about the status, but there was no prior information about the pregnancy of the twins.
Usain Bolt retired from sprint in 2017 and still remains the world record holder in the 100m and 200m categories, making him the fastest man in history.
