It’s hard to imagine a world without Instagram; the social media platform has given us so many pics to obsess over and discuss (Like Selena Gomez’s infamous red dress). But which pic was the most buzzed about this year?
The company just released its stats for photos with the highest grossing likes, and TBH we’re not all that surprised by which pic raked in the most hearts. Naturally, it was a celeb-posted pic. It was a pregnancy announcement pic posted by a pop diva queen. Any guesses?
Beyoncé’s second pregnancy announcement pic, which she posted at the beginning of February of this year, raked in a total of 11.18 million likes(!) While it is a staggering number, we’re not too shocked; the mama of three has a whopping 108 million followers.
Plus, this baby announcement was no run of the mill “we’re expecting” pic. The image was from a highly-stylized photo shoot. Queen Bey ensured she documented the momentous announcement in satin and mesh lingerie, a bold red lip, and a veil worthy of actual royalty (which, let’s be honest, she *IS*). And the result is so iconic, it spawned countless copycats (including one from our CCO Anjelika Temple!).
Apparently, Beyoncé wasn’t the only baby announcement that caused a stir on the ‘gram this year: Christiano Renaldo shared a pic of his girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez after giving birth to their fourth son, which gleaned 11.03 million double taps — making it the second most liked post of 2017. Here’s to hoping 2018 is filled with more celebrity babies on the ‘gram!
