She has a big presence on social media with a staggering 245 million followers on Instagram , 77 million on Facebook, 92.3 million on Twitter and around 17 million followers on TikTok.

She currently has three cats, first came Meredith Grey, a Scottish Fold named after the character in Grey's Anatomy.

Then there's Olivia Benson, also a Scottish Fold and named after the character from Law & Order: SVU.  

And the third kitty in her family is Benjamin Button, an adorable Ragdoll named after Brad Pitt's character in the film of the same name..
