Yesterday, SpaceX launched a car into deep space and landed two rockets in a synchronized flight . The live broadcast of this event was the second most watched in the history of YouTube, behind the jump of Felix Baugartner. However, the most viral of the day took place on Instagram and it is this picture of a baby.
It is not about any baby. Her name is Stormi Webster and she is the first daughter of Kylie Jenner, one of the sisters of the famous reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Her first public image , shared on her mother’s Instagram account, has accumulated more than 14 million likes in less than 24 hours, which means that it is the new most liked publication on the social network.
The image of Stormi clinging to her mother’s finger is not very different from what any father would upload to present his offspring, but even so she managed to generate a million likes per hour until the statistics stabilized. In little more than half a day had surpassed the previous publication with more “likes” on Instagram, in which Beyoncé announced to be pregnant with twins:
In turn, the photo of Beyoncé had surpassed this one of Selena Gómez that was actually a Coca-Cola ad (and then we wonder why brands pay so much money to influencers to promote their products).
We do not know what Beyoncé thinks of Kylie Jenner surpassing her personal record with such a simple picture, but fans of the Kardashian family are delighted. Instagram post not only ended the secrecy about Kylie’s pregnancy, she also revealed her daughter’s name.
On Twitter, the story was told differently. The fact that the baby is named Stormi, like the porn actress who supposedly had an affair with President Trump, was met with ridicule by some tweeters . Others were more struck by the fact that all the names of the Kardashian family are so eccentric: “Reign, Stormi, Chicago, Saint, North; Kris Jenner must think that his grandchildren are Power Rangers, ” a user tweeted.
