Socialite Kylie Jenner has shattered the record for the having the Most liked image on Instagram after amassing more than 15.2 million likes for the post announcing the birth of her daughter, Stormi.
Stormi is the name of the 20-year-old’s first child, which was publicised just a few days after confirming rumours she was pregnant.
Jenner currently has a sizable 103 million Instagram followers.
Media had been trailing the Kardashian sister for some time now, hoping to affirm that she and rapper boyfriend Travis Scott (Jacques Webster) were expecting.
However, Kylie put the rumors to rest on 4 February, explaining her reasoning for hiding her pregnancy in an Instagram post.
Upon sharing the news of her newborn’s birth, which took place on 1 February, she also directed followers to a video on her YouTube channel, which compiled the memories and moments of her gestation period that she kept from the public eye.
Jenner’s secret has been the source of major headlines in celebrity news over the last year – ever since the initial rumor of her pregnancy on 22 September.
Many of her fans were not used to this kind of concealment, as the star is typically rather open on all of her social media channels.
Instead of maintaining a presence of social media, the makeup mogul teased her expectancy with photos of pink objects and newly decorated rooms.
But as expected, the quiet nature of her pregnancy made for an epic reveal when she finally showed the world the newest addition to the Kardashian clan.
Thus far, the support for Jenner has been overwhelming, with countless celebs offering their congratulations to the new parents.
Since 2016, Kylie has proven to be quite the businesswoman, being the founder, CEO, Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Creative Officer of her popular company Kylie Cosmetics and operating a brand which is on track to make $1 billion in revenue by the end of 2022.
Admired for her ambitious work, she was even listed as one of Time Magazine’s most influential teens of 2016 after launching her makeup empire.
This is Kylie’s first Guinness World Records title, but not the first in the family; sisters Kendall Jenner and Kim Kardashian have both previously held the record for the Most liked image on Instagram, sharing the record between September 2014 and February 2017 when Beyonce took the record.
Meanwhile Caitlyn Jenner shattered the record for the Fastest time to reach one million Twitter followers in 2015, reaching the number in just over four hours.
