Bolt and Bennett hosted an extravagant gender reveal party in March which featured fireworks and a huge celebrity guest list, after which the world record holder for both 100m and 200m posted a social media video in which he announced: "I just did the reveal and I'm a girl dad."
The 33-year-old is the only man in history to win gold medals at three straight Olympics having achieved such feat in 2008, 2012 and 2016.
He is also an 11-time world champion, however, he retired right after the London world championships in 2017, following a lingering hamstring injury.

Bolt, 33, has said in the past that he isn't sure whether he would push any future child of his towards athletics.
"That's going to be hard for my kid," he said, via the Mail Online.
"If they want to do it, I'm fine with it. But initially, I'm going to say don't do it, because I know the pressure that will come along with it."
And this is coming just three days that Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has announced the arrival of his first child with wife Dinma who he married in May, 2019.
The Leicester City star disclosed that the adorable baby girl has been named Jaina as he posted of himself carrying the jewel on his Instagram handle.
Ndidi branded himself as the most fortunate man in the world after marrying long term girlfriend Dinma in Abuja last year.
