1) An egg - 26.3 million likes

Kylie Jenner's reign as the number one most liked picture came to an end on January 14th after an egg absolutely obliterated her previous record. A picture of an egg, uploaded on Jan 4 2019, from an account called world_record_egg has now surpassed 26 million links on Instagram, becoming the most liked picture BY MILES. The account also has 2.7m followers (at time of writing).

2) Kylie Jenner's first picture of her daughter Stormi Webster - 18.3 million likes

How many people can say that the first photo of them ever put online got nearly 20 million likes? Stormi Webster was born on February 1, and her introduction to the world just 5 days later quickly climbed to the top of the 'most liked Instagram photos of all time' list. It's reign lasted almost one whole year before being knocked off the top spot by a random picture of an egg. Justice for Stormi.

5) Kylie Jenner's second photo of Stormi Webster - 13 million likes

You just can't keep a good Stormi down. Not only is the first internet photo of her the second most liked Instagram photo of all time, her second photo on the platform raked up some serious numbers, as well. Like many of her early photos, Stormi's face is obscured, but the hype surrounding Kylie's highly secretive pregnancy propelled this photo to number 5 on the 'most liked list'.

Mac Miller tragically passed away in early September 2018. The 26-year-old rapper was beloved by his peers and those close to him. Ariana Grande posted a touching black and white caption-less tribute to Mac Miller a few days later which has been liked 12.8 million times.

7) Cristiano Ronaldo with his family - 12.7 million likes

Despite being the most followed person on Instagram, Cristiano Ronaldo's pictures clearly don't have the range to beat out Stormi or... an egg. This photo of Cristiano with his girlfriend and children however, posted on December 24th 2018, has already racked up an impressive 12.7 million likes.

9) Kylie Jenner holding Stormi Webster - 12.3 million likes

Listen, if I'm Stormi Webster, I would pretty much EXPECT to go viral each time I hit the gram. At this stage in the game, Stormi has probably already amassed more Instagram likes than her cousins (not that it's a competition, of course), and she hasn't even turned one yet. Uh, her power!
