Ronaldo has coined it promoting sports website LiveScore, wellness brand Therabody and cryptocurrency exchange Binance on his account.
The Portuguese legend, a dad of five, is a big draw because he has 597million Instagram followers, the most on the site.
Kylie, 25, has raked in cash plugging fashion giant Jean Paul Gaultier and brands named after her, such as Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Swim.
Third in the Instagram Rich List is football icon Lionel Messi, 36, who can command £1.37million for a sponsored post.
He is the app’s secondmost followed star with 479million fans and has shared paid-for posts for Adidas and Budweiser.
Fourth on the list is singer Selena Gomez, 30, followed by actor Dwayne Johnson, 51.
It comes after Kylie admitted she feels the family has a responsibility to young women who see their posts.
She said: “We have huge influence and like, what are we doing with that power?
“I just see so many young girls on the internet now fully editing (their pictures).
“I went through that stage too. I feel like I’m in a better place. But other people can instil insecurities in you.”
