10 Oct – Thanks to his constant and diligent updating on Instagram, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has recently reached an impressive milestone on the social media app.

The "Jumanji" star has now surged past 200 million followers on Instagram, as he himself revealed in a video post thanking his fans "for giving [him] the space to speak [his] truth."

"Always speak your truth," he wrote. "And the result of speaking my truth is I was just informed, I've surged past and blown by 200 MILLION FOLLOWERS on Instagram and over 300 MILLION FOLLOWERS across all platforms."

The wrestler-turned-actor proudly stated this meant he is now "The #1 followed man in America, the #1 followed American man in the world, and most importantly, the #1 daddy at home."

Here's what I've learned these past few weeks and maybe, you can find value in this take away and apply it to your own life. Always speak your truth. And when you do speak your truth - do your best to speak with dignity, compassion, respect, poise and empathy. Even when the conversations get uncomfortable - when you approach with respect and care - on the other side of discomfort - is clarity and progress. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for giving me the space to speak my truth. You have my word, I'll always do my best to speak my truth with dignity, respect, empathy and GRATITUDE. That's my lesson I've learned. And the result of speaking my truth is I was just informed, I've surged past and blown by 200 MILLION FOLLOWERS on Instagram and over 300 MILLION FOLLOWERS across all platforms - officially becoming/ The #1 followed man in America. The #1 followed American man in the world. And most importantly, the #1 daddy at home. Love you guys, I always got your back and let's keep rockin' πŸ–€πŸ‘ŠπŸΎ #speakyourtruth #dignityrespectgratitude #thatsoursuperpower πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Impressive as this is, surprisingly The Rock isn't the most-followed celebrity on Instagram. That honour goes to Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo, followed closely by American pop star Ariana Grande.

As per Newsweek, 35-year-old Ronaldo has the biggest Instagram following in the world at 239 million followers.

As for 27-year-old Grande, with her 203 million followers, the petite singer currently holds the biggest female Instagram following worldwide.

None of the other celebrities that make the Top 10 most-followed list has hit 200 million, though Kylie Jenner (197 million) and Selena Gomez (194 million) are close. Rounding up the list are Kim Kardashian (189 million), Lionel Messi (167 million), Beyoncé (155 million) and Justin Bieber (147 million).
