Share on Facebook

Usain Bolt has found himself on the receiving end of some intense backlash after he revealed the name of his newborn twins. Here’s why…

Now, imagine our surprise when we found out that Usain Bolt and his girlfriend Kasi Bennett announced their secret baby news yesterday.

The legendary Olympic athlete revealed that Bennett had given birth to a set of beautiful twin boys after keeping the pregnancy journey a secret for 9 months.

The thirty-four-year-old posted a beautiful set of photos alongside partner and their 1-year-old daughter Olympia Lightning Bolt.

The family were dressed in white, pastel pink and beige as they smiled for the snapshots.

Even though Bolt didn’t reveal the date on which the twins were born, he did go on to reveal their names…

But while some people loved the play on words, others did not.

They took to social media to share their thoughts…




But before we reveal the twins’ unique names, let’s take a look at some of the other celebrity names that have made waves over the past few years…
