This year, the only thing people liked more than Beyonce's adorable twins was her pregnancy announcement on Instagram revealing she was expecting them.

In fact, people liked that post more than any other Instagram in 2017! 

The now-iconic photo of the performer and expectant mom cradling her bare baby bump while rocking a veil and sitting in front of a massive flower wreath nabbed 11.18 million likes.

As it turns out, Bey's twins -- Sir and Rumi -- actually got upstaged by updated by their own pregnancy announcement. When Beyonce shared the first photo of her precious babies, that (very similar) photo got 10.27 million likes. 

Which, admittedly, is a lot. In fact, Beyonce's first photo of her twins is the fourth most-liked photo on Instagram this year.

So which star's snapshot snagged the second spot on the top 10 list? Soccer legend Cristiano Ronaldo, who shared a photo of girlfriend Georgina Rodriguez from her hospital bed after they welcomed their newborn baby daughter, Eva. The heartfelt pic garnered 11.02 million likes in just over two weeks, and could technically usurp Beyonce for the top spot before the year's end.

Meanwhile, the third-place spot belongs to Selena Gomez, who also got a lot of love for her hospital bed snapshot. The singer shared a pic of her and her friend Francia Raisa after Raisa donated her kidney to Gomez, who has been struggling with Lupus for years.

The heartfelt post, which also served as a tribute to her friend and an update for her fans, earned 10.31 million likes.

Also, while Beyonce might have the most liked post, as well as the fourth-place honor, posts by Gomez make up five of Instagram's top 10 spots for 2017, while Ronaldo is on the list three times.

In fifth place, with 8.25 million likes, is this sweet snapshot of the soccer star cradling his twin babies, whom he also welcomed earlier this year.

In sixth place, with 8.14 million likes, is Gomez's photo of her and The Weeknd from their time at Coachella.

In seventh place, with 7.78 million likes, is another photo Gomez posted of her and her now-ex when they attended the Met Gala together.

In eighth place, with 7.26 million likes, is yet another photo of Ronaldo and his sweet family.

In ninth place, with 7.15 million likes, is Gomez's post sharing a photo from her shoot with Vogue magazine.

And rounding out the list with 7.06 million likes is this festive snapshot from Gomez's 25th birthday back in July.

And these popular posts seem to match, rather closely, the rankings of celebs with the most followers. Right now Gomez sits atop that list as the reigning queen of Instagram with over 130 million followers, while Ronaldo comes in at a distant second with 116 million.

In third place is Ariana Grande with 115 million -- despite the odd fact that none of her posts made the top 10 most liked -- while Beyonce comes in at number four with 108 million.

Hilariously, Kim Kardashian and her high-profile nemesis Taylor Swift are neck-and-neck, each with approximately 104 million followers, but Kardashian has the slight edge, putting her in the fifth place spot, and Swift in sixth.

Rounding out the top 10 most followed celebs are Kylie Jenner with 99.5 million, Dwayne Johnson with 96 million, Justin Bieber with 93.9 million and Kendall Jenner with 84.8 million.
