A photo posted this week by reality TV star Kim Kardashian has broken Justin Bieber’s Instagram record for most likes, a Facebook spokesperson confirmed.

Kardashian recently wed rapper Kanye West in a private ceremony. Kardashian posted a photo May 27 of the newlyweds kissing and since then, the photo has more than 1.99 million likes. The photo has also generated more than 37,100 comments.

The kiss photo broke the old record, set by singer Justin Bieber, posted 5 months ago, where he is being hugged by singer Selena Gomez. That photo has 1.82 million likes.

Kardashian posted another photo before the kiss one, of her walking down the aisle with West. That photo has also received an impressive 1.61 million likes.

The same photo was posted to her Facebook page, generating more than 1.6 million likes, 16,400 shares and 23,700 comments. According to Mediabistro’s PageData, Kardashian’s Facebook page has grown by more than 347,000 fans in the past week, while her People Talking About This value has risen by 929,400 in the past 7 days.

Kardashian, who has 14.8 million Instagram followers, also changed her name on the photo sharing site to Kim Kardashian West.
