Beyonce's February 1st photo announcing the pregnancy of her twins was the most liked Instagram photo of 2017.
The photo, which saw the pop star caressing her bump in a see-through veil and underwear amidst a backdrop of multi-colored flowers was liked a whopping 11.1m times on the site, more than any other photo posted that year.
Captioning the photo, the star expressed her joy at the prospect of being a mother once more- only this time to twins.
"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."
Beyonce Knowles met the rapper Jay Z in 2002, and the couple wed six years later in 2008 before starting a family, with their first child Blue Ivy Carter, born in 2012.
The twins, Sir and Rumi were born in June of this year.
However, while Bey may boast 2017's most liked Instagram photo, the most prestigious accolade goes to Selena Gomez, who for the second year in a row finished the year as the social media platform's most-followed celebrity with a current tally of 130m followers.
Second in the race for Instagram supremacy is the Portuguese soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo, while Ariana Grande, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian make up the rest of the top 5.
And there was me thinking my 1,000+ followers was impressive....
