Beyonce’s iconic Instagram post, where she announced that she was pregnant with twins, has been named the most liked Instagram post of 2017.
The post garnered over 11.1 million likes since Bey made the announcement in February, dwarfing the competition.
People seemed to have an affinity for life in 2017, as the second most liked Instagram post was also a birth announcement, this time Cristiano Ronaldo (who also welcomed twins.)
Beyonce and Ronaldo also appear once more in the top 5, with the final spot being Selena Gomez’s post kidney-transplant photo. See the posts below.
I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
