"Stormi Webster," the caption simply stated beneath a tender photo of Stormi holding onto Jenner's thumb.

This was the first photo Jenner posted of her now Insta-famous daughter who cracked quite a few photos in this year's list.

2019 was a year equally as full of selfies and sexy thirst traps as it was of wholesome family moments and proclamations of love and memories -- and based on the content that made it to the top posts of the year, the general public seemed to crave a mix of all of the above.

From bare-faced selfies posted by Selena Gomez to a surprise wedding announcement by Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, celeb Instagrams brought the heat this year.

Two charitable posts were among the top posts of 2019, with one unexpected photo of a food item taking the number one spot.

How many of these do you remember from the year? Here were the most liked Instagram posts of 2019:

The most-liked photo of the year was a January 4 photo of an egg that garnered nearly 54 million likes. It currently holds the record for the most-liked photo on Instagram ever, dethroning Kyle and Stormi in 2018.

It was later revealed after the initial post that the egg was part of a campaign promoting mental health and wellness -- and it's safe to say that the attempt to draw attention to the mission worked.
