We’ve been watching and waiting with bated breath for the reveal of Baby Bolt and she’s here in her acclaimed glory.

Olympia Lightning Bolt is the name of Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett's first child together.

Less than five minutes ago Baby Bolt’s momma Kasi Bennett shared pics from a photoshoot captured beautifully by photographer Adrian McDonald and styled by BootlegRocstar Neko Kelly.

Both McDonald and Kelly have, at different points in their career, received a nod of approval from Vogue magazine.

It is not surprising then that Bennett’s style team opted for the typical Victorian-era set design á la longstanding Vogue photog/editor Annie Leibowitz.

On that fashion note, both baby and mom wore custom Kadian Nicely designs. And, make-up artist Teeah Anderson and hairstylist Melleisa Dawkins handled the glam.

What made the reveal even more special was that Bennett celebrates her birthday today, and Daddy Bolt also shared the images with an adorable congratulatory note via Instagram.

"I am happy to spend your special day with you...I want nothing but happiness for [you] and will continue doing my best keeping a smile on [your] face," he expressed in the caption.

He ended the greeting with a cheeky insider "I Love you and Happy 21th birthday".
