2017 Instagram Review: Most Liked Posts
Beyonce takes number one spot with 11.1 million likes for her pregnancy announcement photo.
Hot on Queen Bey’s heels is professional footballer Cristiano Ronaldo with 11.03 million likes on the snap announcing that his girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, gave birth to his fourth child. Before the couple welcomed their baby girl named Alana Martina, the soccer star already welcomed twins, Eva and Mateo, via a surrogate earlier this year.
Rounding up the top three is 2016’s queen of Instagram Selena Gomez, with 10.3 million likes of the photo she shared in September revealing that she underwent a kidney transplant. Her best friend was the donor.
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.
