Beyonce photo the most-liked Instagram photo of 2017

A study conducted by Instagram itself reveals that Ronaldo has gained nine million more followers than rival soccer player, Argentinian Lionel Messi.

UFC legend Conor McGregor makes the top 10 alongside Cleveland Cavaliers hero LeBron James, but who else has gathered the most followers this year?

The most liked posts of the year include that of Beyoncé, Cristiano Ronaldo and Selena Gomez and the most liked videos are from Cristiano Ronaldo, Leo Messi, Selena Gomez and Emilia Clarke.

Beyoncé may have had the most-liked post on Instagram in 2017 (her pregnancy announcement, obviously), but she doesn't have the most followers on the photo-sharing app. The picture, which was posted in September, shows the singer and her best pal Francia Raisa holding hands after their surgery and has achieved 10.3 million likes.

This is all to say that fame, of course, is fleeting, and that while one year you could have the top-followed Instagram account, the next year, you may end up being surpassed by a Portuguese athlete or a fellow pop star or, I don't even know, Bhad Bhabie.

Ronaldo and his twins make a comeback for the No. 2 spot.

Ronaldo's girlfriend, Georgina Rodriguez, also gave birth to another daughter, Alana Martina, in November, to add another member to a suddenly burgeoning Ronaldo family. We have been blessed two times over.

The Feb. 1 post received more than 11.1 million likes.

Selena Gomez, who remains the most-followed celebrity on Instagram, landed the third most-liked picture for her announcement about her kidney transplant.
