“I would hope he’ll settle down, get married and start his family,” Jennifer Bolt told CNN’s Don Riddell in a segment that aired Saturday about what she hopes Bolt will do after the Olympics end.

“I know he’ll settle down because he has said it,” she said. “He told me many times that he’s going to start his family.”

Bolt on the other hand, who easily qualified Saturday to move on to the 100-meter dash semi-final, has expressed interest in marriage. But not anytime soon.

“I’ve thought about it, but I know I’m not going to get married before 35, for sure,” Bolt told the Telegraph last month.

He said he doesn’t want to wind up like Wayne Rooney, the Manchester United forward who married his high school sweetheart in 2008 when he was 21 years old. While the couple’s relationship has been far from perfect, today Rooney and his wife Colleen seem pretty happy. They have three kids, whom they often flaunt on social media.
