There are two major takeaways from this information. First, it confirms Jenner’s existence as one of the most baffling public figures of the modern era. Haters, say what you will, but this 20-year-old managed to trump Queen Bey at her own game.
But here’s what stands out the most about this list: It’s full! Of! Babies!
If you look at the top 10 most-liked posts, you’ll find that six involve some sort of baby news. Beyoncé’s twins were slightly less popular when out of the womb, ranking at No. 5, and they’re followed by Stormi’s birth announcement and a black-and-white photo of Khloe Kardashian’s pregnant belly. (The other four posts include Selena Gomez’s kidney transplant, an intensely tattooed Justin Bieber, Ronaldo winning a fancy award and Gomez posing in front of her childhood home, where she was also once an infant.)
My greatest dream realized! We are having a baby! I had been waiting and wondering but God had a plan all along. He knew what He was doing. I simply had to trust in Him and be patient. I still at times can't believe that our love created life! Tristan, thank you for loving me the way that you do! Thank you for treating me like a Queen! Thank you for making me feel beautiful at all stages! Tristan, most of all, Thank you for making me a MOMMY!!! You have made this experience even more magical than I could have envisioned! I will never forget how wonderful you've been to me during this time! Thank you for making me so happy my love! Thank you to everyone for the love and positive vibes! I know we've been keeping this quiet but we wanted to enjoy this between our family and close friends as long as we could privately. To enjoy our first precious moments just us ❤️ Thank you all for understanding. I am so thankful, excited, nervous, eager, overjoyed and scared all in one! But it's the best bundle of feelings I've ever felt in my life! ❤️❤️❤️
It makes sense, if you think about it. We are built to love baby features like round faces and big eyes, which translates to us quickly double-tapping the photos of infants and puppies that make their way into our feeds. Pregnancy announcements tend to make people all warm and fuzzy inside, probably because they signify the prospect of us getting to look at those round faces and big eyes in the near future. I can provide no explanation for Bieber’s inclusion on this list but will say that kidneys are necessary and soccer is fun to watch. There’s science behind this, readers.
Jenner’s post was bound to end up on top, seeing as there was a six-month period of intense intrigue leading up to it. TMZ might have broken the baby news in September, but the lip kit-selling socialite uncharacteristically laid low throughout her pregnancy and went out of her way to cover the bump with baggy clothing and strategically placed blankets. We knew, but we didn’t really know until Jenner announced the birth over the weekend.
The latest and most popular post revealed the final piece of information: the baby’s name. Stormi is an interesting choice — don’t they read the news? — but Webster is the real last name of the baby’s father, rapper Travis Scott (a.k.a. Jacques Webster). We haven’t yet heard the story behind the unusual name, but in the meantime, here are some jokes to tide you over:
