“I want to wish my gf Kasi a happy birthday,” Bolt wrote on Twitter on Tuesday evening.
“I want nothing but happiness for you and will continue to doing my best keeping a smile on your face.
“We have started a new chapter together with our daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt.”

Olympia Lightning Bolt is such a powerful name. Sounds like she descended from Mount Olympus in a golden chariot, escorted by Zeus himself.
