'I'm a pee guy': Usain Bolt shares his bizarre parenting philosophy
Multiple Olympic gold medal-winning sprinter Usain Bolt has revealed that his life looks very different since he retired from athletics. The legendary Jamaican is now a father of three and while he loves being a dad there are some parenting duties that he just won't do.
The 34-year-old athlete "made a deal" with partner Kasi Bennett - with whom he has 15-month-old daughter Olympia Lightning and 3-month old twins Thunder and Saint Leo - before they had kids about their care needs and he admitted he's only comfortable with some elements of nappy duty.
Bolt admitted: "I don't change poop nappies; I'm a pee guy. Anytime they poop I'm, like, 'Mum, here you go.' I made that deal before she got pregnant. 'Pee nappies, I'm the one; poo nappies, you're the one.' "
The couple have also agreed not to have any more children.
Asked if he's planning for more, Bolt told The Times newspaper: "No, we both agree that that's it."
Bolt also confessed he wasn't keen to be at the birth of his children but Bennett urged him to support her.
Bolt shared: "I didn't want to be there, but Kasi was, like, 'Oh, please!' My dad told me, 'Whatever happens, do not look.'
"[Did I look?] No!"
The sportsman credits parenthood for helping him to calm down and take life more slowly.
"[Parenthood] has made me much more patient," admits Bolt. "People always ask me why I couldn't coach [athletics]. I was, like, 'I'm not the patient type of guy.' [Becoming a father has] really calmed me down and let me know how to live at a slower pace."
Bolt hopes at least one of his children follows in his footsteps and forges a career in athletics.
"Yeah, definitely. I don't care who."
Meanwhile, after releasing his debut album, Country Yutes, Usain has set his sights for musical success high.
Bolt boasted: "[I'm aiming for] the highest top of top — a Grammy. That would be a big thing. So that's what we're going to work towards."
