These ten pictures checked all the boxes required and launched these celebs into the Instagram history books. Here is a look at the top ten most-liked Instagram posts.
When your mom is a billionaire with a makeup empire, having her wrapped around your fingers will definitely draw attention. Thus when Kylie Jenner took to Instagram to share a sweet post of her daughter Stormi holding her hand it's no surprise that the likes flooded in.
The post currently has over eighteen million likes and was once the most-liked Instagram picture on the platform. However, a picture of an egg eventually beat her but it was later deleted without warning in October 2019, allowing Jenner to reclaim her title.
Rapper XXXTentacion's last post was made before he passed in June 2018. It is the only picture on his Instagram feed and gained a lot of attention from fans.

Jennifer Aniston joined Instagram recently and her first post caused ripples. In the throwback picture, Jennifer Aniston and her Friends co-stars were pictures smiling brightly at the camera.
