Kylie Jenner breaks Instagram record as she becomes the first woman to reach 300M followers
Beauty entrepreneur, Kylie Jenner has become the first woman on Instagram history to reach 300M followers.
Despite keeping a quiet presence on social media the past few months, Kylie Jenner is the first woman to reach the Instagram milestone.
While the 24-year-old mother of one is the first female to reach 300m followers, football star, Cristiano Ronaldo is the most followed person on Instagram with 388M. Ronaldo passed the 300m mark since June last year.
Kylie had previously dethroned Ariana Grande as the most followed female on the platform, despite keeping a low profile since November after her baby daddy Travis Scott’s Astroworld tragedy which killed 10 and injured hundreds of people.
However, on Wednesday night, January 12, Kylie hit the 300m mark.
Previously, Ariana Grande took the top spot as the most-followed woman on Instagram. In Feb. 2019, Grande had racked up 146.5 million followers, beating out Selena Gomez who had earned the most-followed spot before the “Positions” pop star.
The star, who is expecting her second child with rapper Travis Scott, took some time away from social media after 10 concertgoers died at Scott’s Astroworld Festival show in Houston on Nov. 5. Jenner returned to Instagram on Christmas Eve with a throwback picture of her mother, Kris Jenner.
Then on New Year’s Eve, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star took time to reflect on the highs and the lows of the past year.
“As 2022 is approaching i’ve been reflecting on this last year and the blessings that it brought but also the many heartaches it held,” she wrote alongside the black and white image of her growing baby bump. “I will never forget this year and all the significant changes it made to my life.”
“I pray this new year is filled with a lot of love for all of you and i hope everyone stays safe and healthy during this time. 🖤,” the Kylie Cosmetics founder added.
