Heads up, 2044 Olympics ... Usain Bolt's baby daughter has officially arrived!!!
Jamaican Prime Minister Andrew Holness confirmed the news on social media Monday ... saying Bolt's longtime girlfriend, Kasi Bennett, gave birth to the couple's child this week.
"Congratulations to our sprint legend Usain Bolt and Kasi Bennett on the arrival of their baby girl!" Holness wrote.
"Yo, I just did the reveal and I'm a girl dad," Bolt said at the time.
The two have been dating for close to seven years ... with 33-year-old Bolt and 30-year-old Bennett pretty much inseparable ever since the Olympic legend retired from competitive sprinting.
The couple has yet to publicly announce the birth ... but we're sure it'll be an epic reveal as soon as they get a minute for social media time.
Katy Perry's not covering a Barenaked Ladies song, but she IS a bare-naked lady for her new music video ... showing off her growing baby bump.
The singer released her "Daisies" music video early Friday morning, and in it, she's not just embracing pregnancy ... she's flaunting it in the buff!! We know, ya probably don't think of pregnant women doing stripteases, but that's what Katy did ... slowly losing her loose white garb with a waterfall in the background.
Katy says she wrote this song a couple of months ago "as a call to remain true to the course you've set for yourself, regardless of what others may think." She added that, recently, that took on a whole new meaning in light of the global pandemic we're all experiencing.
As she put it, "Each of us is one in more than seven billion, with our own story of strength and resilience to tell. I hope it will be the soundtrack to going for your dreams now... especially the ones we left behind."
10:39 AM PT -- Khloe just addressed the rumor too ...
While rumors and reports started swirling Wednesday morning saying Khloe was pregnant with the NBA star's child, our sources tell us that's not the case.
Sources close to Khloe tell TMZ ... she is NOT pregnant and the rumor mill started simply because eagle-eyed fans noticed she was posting a lot of pink flowers recently, which they mistook as a sign of another daughter on the horizon.
Fans also noted a lot of the photos and videos Khloe's been posting on social media are from the waist up or throwback pics ... but we're told it's not a sign she's actually expecting.
Sounds like things are good between Khloe and TT, even though they don't live under the same roof ... our sources say they've been seeing each other from time to time during Cali's stay-at-home order because of their daughter, and the family celebrated Mother's Day together.
Khloe's still a mother of one ... and that's not changing any time soon.

Huge news for NFL running back Mark Walton -- prosecutors have dropped the aggravated battery charge stemming from an alleged violent incident in Florida with his pregnant girlfriend.
"The case was dismissed," Walton's attorney, Michael A. Gottlieb, tells TMZ Sports.
When asked why prosecutors decided to drop the charge, he told us, "The only thing I'm going to say is after months of talking with prosecutors, this was the most appropriate way to resolve this case."
As we previously reported, the 23-year-old -- who played for the Miami Dolphins before the incident -- was facing 15 years in prison after allegedly attacking his pregnant girlfriend around 4 AM in November 2019.
The woman called 911 and told the operator straight-up -- "My boyfriend beat me up."
When cops arrived, the woman told officers Walton pushed her against a wall and punched her several times in the face and head, even though he KNEW she was 5 weeks pregnant.
A responding officer reported the woman had swelling on her left eye.
Walton was ultimately arrested and booked for aggravated battery against a pregnant person -- a 2nd-degree felony which carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
But, during a hearing (over Zoom) on Wednesday, prosecutors formally dropped the case against Walton, Gottlieb says.
Walton isn't entirely out of the woods ... NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says the NFL is still investigating and he could be subject to league discipline if he signs with another team.
Walton played 7 games for the Dolphins in 2019 -- with 53 carries for 201 yards.
Up to this point, the baby rumors have been swirling ... but the cat's out of the bag after the married couple was spotted strolling in L.A.
Sophie and Joe both had masks on and held hands as they ventured out for some fresh air, but what everyone's more fixated on -- her blossoming baby bump.
She was also spotted out with Joe a couple days back in a loose-fitting, men's button-up dress shirt ... so it's starting to add up. There were also reports earlier this year she was pregnant, but no word from the couple.
In any case, neither have publicly addressed the pregnancy rumors and confirmed ... so we'll hold off on the congratulations ... for now.
"The Man" made the huge announcement on Monday Night Raw just minutes ago ... saying she's relinquishing her women's championship belt to prepare for the little one's arrival.
"Tonight is no ordinary night for me," Lynch said. "I'm torn between joy and sadness, 'cause I'm at a place in my life where things are about to change and I needed to do something about it."
"I have to go away for a while."
Asuka -- who just won Money In The Bank Sunday night -- will now hold the belt, which Lynch revealed was in the locked briefcase all along.
"The match last night was actually for the Raw Women's Championship."
"You go and be a warrior, 'cause I'm gonna go be a mother," a highly emotional Lynch said to Asuka.
Lynch and Rollins have been dating since early 2019 ... and got engaged in August during a romantic beachfront proposal.
As we previously reported, Lynch is also kick-starting an acting career -- she's had a role on "Billions" and has John Cena and The Rock in her corner as mentors ... so we take it she'll still be busy in the meantime.
But, don't get it twisted -- Lynch is hoping to get back to the squared circle ASAP so she can get her belt back ... 'cause she's truly a badass.
Meek Mill will always remember his 33rd birthday -- 'cause it's the day his new baby boy was born. Can't top that gift!!!
The rapper ecstatically announced Wednesday his Philly fashion designer GF, Milano Harris, gave birth to their first child together. Meek said, "Milano dropped me off a king on my birthday! #thebestgift ❤️."
No word yet on the new kid's name ... but that hasn't stopped Milano from celebrating their new arrival. She's been flooded with congrats on social media ... after months of posting pics of her growing belly.
She first revealed the pregnancy back in December at her Milano Di Rogue fashion show, saying ... "Im a creative, so I didn’t want to announce my pregnancy to the world or even to my family with just a photo of my baby bump. I wanted to create a moment that I could cherish and remember forever. We planned this show in 6 weeks and I have to say this was the hardest show we’ve planned to date but all in all I’m so happy with the turn out."
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
Meek and Milano have been dating for about a year now. Back in February during his Twitter spat with ex Nicki Minaj, Meek confirmed he was expecting a kid with Milano in a since-deleted tweet that said, "My girl is pregnant watching me tweet about my ex is very clownish ... Ima exit."
This will be Meek's third son. He has 2 sons from a previous relationship.
Elon Musk and Grimes can call their newborn baby son whatever they want, but on his birth certificate, X Æ A-12 is a no-go ... TMZ has learned.
According to a supervisor at the Department of Public Health Vital Records Office in Los Angeles -- where the baby is believed to have been born -- it is against California law to include numbers or symbols in a name.
The law states names must only include the 26 letters of the English alphabet ... obviously, the name Musk and Grimes are claiming for their boy does not meet that criteria.
As we reported ... the Tesla honcho revealed the news of the baby's birth and photos via a series of Twitter replies Monday, along with the odd name choice.
•X, the unknown variable ⚔️— ꧁ ༒ Gℜiꪔ⃕es ༒꧂ 🍓🐉🎀 小仙女 (@Grimezsz) May 6, 2020 @Grimezsz
•Æ, my elven spelling of Ai (love &/or Artificial intelligence)
•A-12 = precursor to SR-17 (our favorite aircraft). No weapons, no defenses, just speed. Great in battle, but non-violent 🤍
(A=Archangel, my favorite song)
(⚔️🐁 metal rat)
Grimes later explained the name was inspired by the A-12 plane -- a precursor to the couple's favorite aircraft, which was a CIA spy plane used during the Cold War -- among other interesting things.
That might all be moot now, though, as the kid's legal name will have to be something else ... unless they just shorten it to A for Archangel, or go with "metal rat."
Ya never know with these 2.
The Tesla honcho revealed the news on Twitter Monday evening by first replying to a tweet by saying the birth was a few hours away, then following it up by tweeting ... "Mom & baby all good."
Soon after, he responded to a request for a baby pic with a shot of him holding his newborn son ... which he claims shall be named "X Æ A-12 Musk." He also posted one later of his kid with some "savage" face tattoos via social media filters.
The baby is the first for Grimes and the sixth for Musk. He has five sons -- a set of twins and a set of triplets -- from his previous marriage to author Justine Wilson.
As we've reported ... there hasn't been a dull moment with Elon the past week or so, especially on Twitter. He's been pushing to "free America now" amid the coronavirus pandemic, and has vowed to sell "almost all physical possessions" and not own a house.
He seems to be walking the walk too ... because he just put a pair of his Bel-Air mansions on the market this weekend.
As for that movie in space with Tom Cruise ... the actor and Musk's Space X are working with NASA on an action-adventure flick that would actually be shot in outer space, according to a Deadline report.
It's apparently in the early stages of development ... just like Musk's newborn son.
Like we said -- never a dull moment.
Anderson Cooper is the proud new father of a baby boy ... revealing Wyatt Morgan Cooper to the world.
The CNN anchor took to Instagram Thursday night to reveal earlier this week Wyatt was born via surrogate. Cooper said, "As a gay kid, I never thought it would be possible to have a child, and I’m grateful for all those who have paved the way, and for the doctors and nurses and everyone involved in my son's birth."
As for Wyatt's name, the 52-year-old says it's in honor of his dad, who passed away when he was just 10, saying, "I hope I can be as good a dad as he was."
Anderson also shared a sweet message about his surrogate, saying, "Most of all, I am grateful to a remarkable surrogate who carried Wyatt, and watched over him lovingly, and tenderly, and gave birth to him. It is an extraordinary blessing - what she, and all surrogates give to families who can't have children."
Finally, Anderson says, "I do wish my mom and dad and my brother, Carter, were alive to meet Wyatt, but I like to believe they can see him. I imagine them all together, arms around each other, smiling and laughing, happy to know that their love is alive in me and in Wyatt, and that our family continues."
His mother, Gloria Vanderbilt, died last year.
Wyatt is Anderson's first child ... congrats!!
3:55 PM PT -- Gigi continues to drop hints about her big baby news without coming right out and saying it ... this time in the form of a pasta sauce recipe.
She says she's dining on spicy vodka sauce tonight, but adds ... "but have no vodka... so without, but still gooood." No alcohol, eh? Subtle, yet effective.
9:49 AM PT -- 4/29 -- Gigi and Zayn's new bundle will be a girl ... TMZ has learned.
Family sources tell us that, yes, GH and ZM have been informed that the sex of their forthcoming child together will be female. Expecting mothers can usually find this out at about the 16 to 20-week mark, which is right where Gigi's at. And, of course, that means there'll be another beautiful gal in the Hadid family.
There's also been a lot of talk about whether Gigi's 25th birthday party celebration from this past weekend -- where she flaunted big 2-5 balloons that also had blue and pink ribbons attached -- might've been a gender reveal party all in one.
It's possible she was dropping hints to her millions of followers and fans. Now, she can probably let that blue-ribbon balloon fly into the sky ... 'cause we know what's coming.
Family sources for the couple tell us ... Gigi is 20 weeks along. It's unclear if they know the sex of the baby yet, but both of their families are very excited. The supermodel shared some celebratory photos with the former One Direction singer this past weekend, but they weren't baby related ... they were birthday pics.
Her sister, Bella, was also in the shots, and Gigi said she had the "sweetest day celebrating my 25th birthday with my quarantine family."
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
She's been staying at her family's Pennsylvania farm during the coronavirus lockdown, and obviously Zayn's there too.
The couple allegedly rekindled their relationship in December and were spotted together in NYC in January, fueling rumors they were fully back on.
Zigi fans got confirmation on Valentine's day when Hadid posted a photo of Malik from December captioned, "HEY VALENTINE ... Z on the farm."
The 2 first started dating in 2015, before announcing a split in March 2018. The 2 years from then until now included countless rumors of getting back together ... but now it's official.

TMZ has confirmed the married couple is expecting, though it's unclear how far along Kat might be at the moment. Reports surfaced last year that they were eager to get their family started as soon as possible -- they got hitched just last June after about a year of dating.
No word yet on whether the kid might be a girl or boy, but it looks like the mom-to-be has a baby bump well underway right now ... she was spotted out this week in L.A. with her mom, Maria Shriver, with loose clothing and a hoodie on, which seems to show her belly's grown. Per our sources, Kat instantly covered up when she saw she was being photographed. The couple hasn't made the announcement yet, but we know it's true. People broke the news.
This would make baby no. 1 for Kat, but it'd be Chris' second child. He's got a young son, Jack, that he shares with his ex-wife, Anna Faris ... to whom he was married for several years before getting divorced in 2018.
They both moved on -- Anna appears to be engaged. Interestingly enough, we'd heard Chris didn't want more kids in the foreseeable future, and that issue was one of the sticking points at the end of CP and AF's marriage.
In any case, the new baby means a lot for the Schwarzenegger family -- specifically, Arnie himself. This would be his first grandkid EVER, which is wild ... 'cause all of his own children are pretty damn grown now, but just haven't planted a seed. 'Til now, that is.
So, congrats ... to everyone!!!
UFC star Nina Ansaroff told us pregnancy wouldn't stop her from training ... and here she is, 19 weeks preggo ... PUTTIN' IN THAT WORK, SON!
And since Nina plans on continuing her MMA career after she gives birth, she planned on staying in shape during the pregnancy to help expedite her return to the Octagon.
Take a look at the video ... Nina and her fetus are WRECKING those pads!
"I’m gonna be training throughout my pregnancy," Nina told us ... "I’m gonna stay in shape. I’m not gonna, ya know, just like not do anything and jump in."
Nina said the plan is to take a year off -- but acknowledged, "I’ve never had a baby before. So, I don’t know what to expect."
As for Amanda, she obviously supports Nina -- but doesn't want her to rush back to the Octagon too soon ... a mistake she feels Mackenzie Dern made earlier this year.
Dern took a fight just 4 months after having a baby and lost her Oct. 12 comeback bout vs. Amanda Ribas via unanimous decision.
Imagine having twins ... TWICE!!!
That's the reality for WWE superstar Roman Reigns who just revealed his wife Galina is pregnant with twins -- for the second time!
Roman and Galina already have 3 kids -- including a set of twin boys who were born in 2016.
But during an interview with Muscle & Fitness, Roman dropped the big news ... their fam is growing again in a big way!
"You have 3 kids?" the interviewer asked.
"3 with 2 in the oven," Roman answered ... "So, I'm looking to be a Papa Bear of 5! Breaking news! We haven't shared that."
Second, HOLY MOLY THAT'S A LOT OF KIDS!!!
By the way, the odds of having twins naturally is reportedly 1 in every 250 births -- so, in a way, they kinda hit the jackpot twice!
On the other hand, that's a LOT of poopy diapers.
No word on when the kids are due.
Worth noting ... Reigns notably pulled out of WrestleMania 36 just weeks before the April 4 event -- and even though it seemed the decision was based on his health due to prior bouts with leukemia, it now seems the pregnancy may have also played a role.
"You don't know the whole story," Reigns said in a video posted on March 30 ... "All you know is what you think, 'Oh well his health' and this and that, but you don't know what else is going on in my life."
Now we know ... and hey, CONGRATS MAN!!
The Seahawks superstar and the "Level Up" singer announced their pregnancy just a few months ago ... and this week, they decided to reveal the baby's gender.
The couple -- along with the kids, Future Jr. and Sienna Princess -- went out to a field with palm trees, and had confetti and smoke locked and loaded.
But first ... they had to get a poll on what they preferred the sex to be -- and Russ answered straight-up, "You know what I want it to be!"
Yeah, we're thinking he wanted a boy.
Shortly after, the two fired off the makeshift cannons ... the blue smoke was revealed -- and everyone lost their minds!!!
Ciara broke it down, Russ ran around and the kids went crazy. Good times!!!
It should be noted ... celebs from all over were jacked up for the couple -- with Janet Jackson even leaving a heart emoji on Ciara's social media page!!
'Harry Potter' star Rupert Grint and his girlfriend have made some magic of their own happen ... they're having a baby!!!
The English actor, best known for playing Ron Weasley in the fantasy film franchise, and his partner, Georgia Groome, were out in London Thursday picking up some groceries.
Now, the fact they were spotted not wearing face coverings might be newsworthy, but it's overshadowed by the bigger news ... revealed by Georgia's baby bump.
A rep for the couple confirms with TMZ ... they're "excited to announce they are expecting a baby." It will be their first child together.
Rupert and Georgia were rumored to have secretly tied the knot last year after they were seen wearing matching rings. Unclear if that's true ... but they're about to start a family together nonetheless.
