Kim joins Swift, Gomez in Instagram 100 mn club

Kim joins Swift, Gomez in Instagram 100 mn club

The reigning queen. On Thursday, Kim Kardashian reached 100 million followers on Instagram.

But even though North doesn't know exactly what 100 million followers means, Kardashian says in her Instagram caption that her daughter is excited because her mom is excited and that's good enough.

That is a wild amount of people and makes her the seventh most followed person on the platform (the first six: the official Instagram account, Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, and Cristiano Ronaldo).

You'll be surprised to learn that the selfie-loving star, who posts countless shots of her outfits, jewellery and make-up looks, is most successful when posting family-orientated shots. "Get the stories behind my top pics", Kim wrote alongside a link to her website with a breakdown of her top five photographs.




Kardashian made the announcement for her Instagram followers with photo of 3-year-old North at Hollywood's Universal Studios.

Selena Gomez now has about 120 million followers, Ariana Grande stands at 105 million, and Beyonce and Taylor Swift both have 102 million.

Kim Kardashian has just hit a huge milestone.

Do you ever have any question about anything you wish to ask and get answer? In the post on her site, she proceeds to give juicy, behind-the-scenes details of each photo: "We had Easter at our house". "I go in her room to check on her & she's in the bathroom", wrote Kardashian West on Instagram. Sharing a simple photo of herself, barefoot and sitting on a staircase, Kardashian announced that she'd be giving away 100 LuMee phone cases-a brand she's been collaborating with on social media for over a year.
