Yesterday social media when into a frenzy with news that Usain Bolt’s girlfriend is believed to be pregnant as she was nowhere to be found at the Rio Olympic games, according to online users, “Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt is one lucky man.” Are they correct?
Not only has the running star become one of the most loved athletes of all time, but off the track he’s dating one of Jamaica’s most fashionable women, Kasi Bennett.
Bolt, who is usually silent on his love interest, showed off his girlfriend to the world on Instagram in April and later confirmed that he is in a steady relationship.
Since the opening of the Rio Olympics, social media users have been speculating on the absence of Bolt’s girlfriend from Brazil.
Some online users believe that Kasi might be pregnant and is not in Rio due to fear surrounding the threat of Zika virus.
In the face of the allegations, neither Bolt nor Kasi has confirmed the pregnancy rumors. Efforts to get a comment from Bolt’s camp or Kasi proves futile.
In an interview with CNN’s Don Riddell, Usain’s mother, Jennifer Bolt, spoke about her hopes for her son’s future after he hangs up his Pumas.
Mrs. Bolt is desperate for the “triple-triple” winner to settle down, get married and start a family.
While Mrs. Bolt does mention crying with joy at all of her son’s accomplishments, we imagine that she’ll be just a hint happier when he finally gives her some grand babies.
Bolt admitted that he’s having a hard time grasping the idea of settling down, especially with the number of interests he gets from women.
Victory takes Bolt’s tally to eight gold medals, and moves closer to the “triple-triple” – a combination of gold in the 100m, 200m and the 4x100m relay in three consecutive Olympics.
