    A picture of an egg — yes, an egg — has passed Kylie Jenner as the most liked Instagram post ever.

    The egg post, by @world_record_egg, is closing in on 26.9 million “likes,” far surpassing Jenner’s post announcing the birth of her daughter, Stormi. Jenner’s post has 18,307,389 likes.

    According to Taylor Lorenz, a writer at The Atlantic, the Instagram egg account was started by a kid in London.

    Jenner last year became the first member of her family “to grow her ad equivalent value to over $1,000,000 per post across her social media portfolio,” according to a report from D’Marie Analytics, a social media insights firm. In other words, People reported, every #sponsored or #ad Instagram post, Snapchat story or tweet Jenner posts is worth $1 million based on her hefty social following an engagement.

    So she can afford to buy all the eggs she wants.
