Here are the most popular Instagram posts of 2019

2019 was certainly the year of the 'gram.

The bar was set high with 2018's top photo posted by Kylie Jenner in February of last year, revealing the name of her then newborn daughter, Stormi Webster:

"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.
