Olympian Usain Bolt is expecting his first child with girlfriend Kasi Bennett.

The Jamaican sprinter announced the happy news on his Instagram page on Thursday morning, with a snap of Kasi displaying her blossoming baby bump in a stunning red gown.

"I just want to say a KING or QUEEN is about to be HERE," he wrote alongside the photo of the marketing director posing on the beach by the ocean.

Kasi also shared three snaps from the shoot on her own Instagram page, writing, "Our biggest blessing..." and "Our greatest celebration..." alongside the first two posts.

In the caption of the third and final image, the 30-year-old teased: "Our golden child... Coming soon..."

The couple has been dating since 2014, with the Olympic gold medallist, 33, recently revealing his hopes to have children with his longtime girlfriend "in the near future".

He told Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "We just got really serious, we are taking it one step at a time. I definitely want a family, though."
