The pair announced that they were expecting a child in January and were keen to shout about the gender this week.

The party featured pictures and video of the couple before a countdown preceded the big reveal and fireworks were let off.

Bolt attempted to keep his relationship under wrap for several years to keep his girlfriend out of the media.

In 2016, he said: "I'm not going to tell you who she is, I want to keep it small for now, because I know when it gets out there's going to be a lot of things to say, and I told her she can't handle it.

"Because I've been through the media. I understand how you guys are – especially the British media."
