Coming in second was Cristiano Ronaldo's post announcing the birth of his newborn baby girl.

The snap showed the footballer, his son and his girlfriend holding their infant daughter in the hospital and racked up 11,028,821 likes.

In third place was Selena Gomez's post detailing her transplant and thanking her friend Francia Raisa for donating her kidney. The post explained why she wasn't heavily promoting new music and why she was 'laying low.'


I’m very aware some of my fans had noticed I was laying low for part of the summer and questioning why I wasn’t promoting my new music, which I was extremely proud of. So I found out I needed to get a kidney transplant due to my Lupus and was recovering. It was what I needed to do for my overall health. I honestly look forward to sharing with you, soon my journey through these past several months as I have always wanted to do with you. Until then I want to publicly thank my family and incredible team of doctors for everything they have done for me prior to and post-surgery. And finally, there aren’t words to describe how I can possibly thank my beautiful friend Francia Raisa. She gave me the ultimate gift and sacrifice by donating her kidney to me. I am incredibly blessed. I love you so much sis. Lupus continues to be very misunderstood but progress is being made.
