Selena Gomez also appears in the top 3
Beyoncé’s widely parodied pregnancy shoot has been crowned Instagram’s most liked photo of 2017.
Beyoncé took to the social media site to post an artistic image of her holding her pregnant stomach back in February, revealing that she and husband Jay Z were expecting twins – telling fans: “We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over.”
The result is perhaps unsurprising, given that the photo broke the site’s all-time ‘most liked’ record back in February, but the total number of likes has now jumped from 7.3 million to 11.1 million.
Elsewhere in the top 3, footballer Cristiano Ronaldo‘s photo announcing the birth of his twins has garnered 11 million likes since it was posted earlier this month, while Selena Gomez‘s hospital bed photo, which she used to reveal she had undergone a kidney transplant, comes in third with 10.3 million likes.
Check out the top 3 most liked Instagram photos of 2017 below.
Beyoncé’s twin babies with her husband Jay Z – named Sir and Rumi Carter – were born on June 14 of this year. The star once again took to Instagram to confirm their birth one month on.
In the latter photo, Beyoncé is once more flanked by huge bouquets of flowers and wears a blue veil as she cradles the babies in her arms.
Captioning the snap, she wrote: “Sir Carter and Rumi 1 month today.”
