Fans took to the comment section to wish the former sprinter a great day while gushing over how heartwarming the photo was. Many could not stop talking about how cute his daughter is. One fan exclaimed, "OMG! She's so cute, give me her!!!"
Bolt and his longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett welcomed their daughter, Olympia back in May and it signaled a whole new chapter for the pair who have never had kids of their own.
The retired eight-time Olympic gold medalist first gave fans a peek at his daughter when he took to social media to reveal her name– Olympia Lightning Bolt.
The former sprinter will reportedly not be forcing her to pursue a career in sports.
Bolt shared a montage of photos featuring little Olympia while celebrating Bennett's 30th birthday. In one of the cute shots, Olympia was dressed in a pink dress with a matching tulle headband as she smiled up at the camera.
Other shots featured Bennett in a long golden number, holding little Olympia who was also dressed in a matching dress.
News of Olympia's birth came earlier in May after the Jamaican prime minister, Andrew Holness congratulated the couple on social media.
Since her arrival, Bolt has been spending a massive amount of time bonding with his adorable daughter. Earlier this month, he shared video footage which saw him cradling Olympia while pretending to have a conversation with her.
Amid all the celebrations, Bolt has also expressed fear of his daughter following his footsteps to become an athlete, stating that she would always be compared to him.
The former sprinter will reportedly not be forcing her to pursue a career in sports. However, if she expresses interest in it, he will support her as best as he can.
Bennett, who is Bolt's girlfriend of five years, celebrated his first Father's Day back in July by sharing pictures from her personal family album.
The post, which came eight days after the delivery, involved a series of photos, one from the day she got her ultrasound, one from the holiday trip when little Olympia was conceived, and a video of herself in labor with Bolt by her side.
Bolt is currently the only sprinter in the world to win 100m and 200m gold medals at three consecutive Olympics and is widely considered the greatest sprinter of all time.
