For many Valentine's Day is a show of love for spouses but for Asafa Powell, it is a show of love for his children.

Yes! Children.

The former world record holder took to social media on Sunday to reveal he has a son and share both his children with the world.

"A lot of you may not know but I do have a son. My kids are everything to me and all I want for Valentine's Day. My personal life has nothing to do with my professional life so it's really nobody's business, but today I'm posting my Valentines ... Meet Avani Powell and Liam Powell. #myheartbeats  #prouddad,” he wrote.

The post was accompanied by a picture of both children holding hands.

The athlete's Facebook and Instagram pages were pictures of shock, happiness and well wishes.
