We would like to share our love and happiness. We have been blessed two times over. We are incredibly grateful that our family will be growing by two, and we thank you for your well wishes. – The Carters
Beyoncé’s artful photo announcing her pregnancy with twins back in February was the most-liked Instagram post of the year, the social network announced on Wednesday.
Alongside a now-famous photo in which Beyoncé, clearly pregnant, kneels atop a flower bed covered in a green veil, the post included a message from the Carters in which they revealed their family would be “growing by two.” The post earned more than 11.1 million likes.
In a fitting follow-up, Beyoncé’s Instagram post revealing the twins, Rumi and Sir Carter, at one month old, earned the fourth spot on Instagram’s top ten.
Selena Gomez, meanwhile, holds five spots in the top ten; her top post of the year was a heartfelt message revealing she had recently undergone a kidney transplant.
Cristiano Ronaldo takes the three remaining spots, including the number-two post of the year, in which he revealed the birth of his baby girl earlier this month.
