He may be the fastest man on earth, but when it comes to his baby girl, Olympic gold medalist Usain Bolt obviously has all the time in the world…
The world-record breaking sprinter has shared the cutest video of him chatting to his baby girl Olympia Lightning Bolt on Instagram, his followers getting a special feel for how he’s embracing his new role as a dad.
In the clip, he looks happy and relaxed as he holds his baby in the crook of his arm and smiles and coos at her.
Of course, it’s very much a one-sided conversation as he gets his baby to “tell daddy” what the matter is, and also to “look at mommy” as he affectionately touches her chubby cheeks.
Little Olympia, who obviously only has eyes for her daddy, responds adorably with her own chatter, which is guaranteed to tug at your heartstrings.
Usain pretends he knows exactly what she’s telling him, and even puts on an expression of “horror” at what she has to say. In the background, you can hear mom Kasi Bennett cracking up at her daughter’s animated conversation with her daddy.
Judging by the way the athlete looks and engages with his baby, it’s pretty clear who’s the apple of her daddy’s eye!
Olympia, born six weeks ago on 14 June, is wearing s sweet bee-print short sleeve onsie.
