At 18.1 million likes, Kylie Jenner had the most-liked post on Instagram.

The post from February 2018 was the first photo of Jenner's newborn daughter, announcing the baby's name, Stormi Webster.

Now, as of Sunday afternoon Pacific Time, that record has been beaten. By a picture of an egg.

At 19 million likes at the time of writing, the post from Jan. 4 by @world_record_egg eclipsed Jenner's post, taking just over a week to smash the record.

"Let's set a world record together and get the most liked post on Instagram. Beating the current world record held by Kylie Jenner (18 million)! We got this," the post's caption reads.

The egg account, which has a million followers, made light work of Jenner's post, which was the most-liked Instagram post ever for nearly a year. 

Jenner's baby post parried away the efforts of Justin Bieber, whose engagement announcement to Hailey Baldwin received 13.3 million likes, and the late XXXTentacion, whose final post before his death also had the same number of likes.

Now Jenner's post is full of egg-related comments.

Shortly after her record was broken, Jenner responded on Sunday with a Snapchat video syndicated to Instagram featuring herself cracking an egg onto the road.

"Take that little egg," she captioned the post.

In its Instagram story, @world_record_egg reacted to the achievement.

"This is a madness. What a time to be alive," the story read. "It doesn't end here though, we're only just getting started."

We've reached out to the "egg gang," as the record-beaters have called themselves for comment, but in the meantime, congratulations.
