Instagram is getting more and more popular everyday and with the app adding more features all of the time, it’s not going to die down anytime soon. One of the best things about Insta is that you’re able to follow the lives of your friends as well as your favorite celebrities. But living in Chicago, it’s hard to find celebs who hang out where we do or like the same views as us (have you seen the skyline at sunset?). If you want to see some hometown heroes and their feeds, read below for some of the best living right here in The Windy City.
1. Chance the Rapper – @chancetherapper
You’d have to be living under a rock if you don’t know who Chance is. The Grammy-winning rapper came from the Chatham neighborhood of Chicago, attended Jones College Prep and is now one of the most talked about artists at the moment. He’s been chilling here since the Grammys and just left for his tour. From his Instagram feed, you’ll find countless videos of his daughter, Kensli, and of his great love for this city.
@chancetherapper: No matter what we are, we’re always family 💪🏾👨👩👧
2. Sophia Bush – @sophiabush
Best known as Brooke Davis on One Tree Hill, Bush has made a new name for herself as Erin Lindsay on Chicago PD. This gig allows the star to live in Chicago frequently, which is very evident from her feed. Also, her dogs are such a plus.
3. Kristin Cavallari – @kristincavallari
Cavallari grew up near Chicago and attended Barrington High School before she made her debut on Laguna Beach as a junior. Since then, she married Jay Cutler, the quarterback for the Chicago Bears up until recently. Due to him leaving the team, Cavallari is now leaving the city, again, but we still have her great pics to remember her time here.
4. Cheryl Scott – @cherylscottwx
Scott, a meteorologist for ABC News Chicago, definitely has a great eye for more than just weather. Her Instagram is full of scenic shots of The Windy City and more, along with a ton of behind the scenes pics and vids of her job!
Melissa Russell – @russellmelisa
Married to Cub’s player Addison Russell, Melissa has a great Instagram with a ton of posts about her kids! And who doesn’t love great shots of little tykes playing with little baseball bats? Russell loves her family, and it’s seen throughout!
Kris Bryant – @kris_bryant17
This Cub’s player is all about the glamor shot (and his new wife). This Instagram has a lot of posts about Bryant’s philanthropic work, his team (and their amazing year) and wife, Jess. While many Chicago women were sad to see Bryant settle down, you have to admit that their chemistry is amazing.
Stephanie McCaffrey – @stephaniemccaffrey9
Forward for the Chicago Red Stars, the city’s women’s soccer team, McCaffrey also blogs for Sporting Chic, which she helped found! Her Insta is full of action-shots on the field as well as her living it up in the best city in the world! She even has a shot with another famous Chicago resident on this list, Sophia Bush!
@stephaniemccaffrey9: Hey Kids- never let an ill-fitting, borderline upsetting pair of shorts deter you from posting an otherwise perfect Instagram- they’ll get over it #instamodels #thunderthighs #shortshorts
Giuliana Rancic – @giulianarancic
Currently a host on Fashion Police, Rancic spends her time between California and Chicago (where Bill, her husband, is from)! She likes to take trips down memory lane in her Instagrams, but also has a ton of family photos, especially from when they’re on vacation.
@giulianarancic: Favorite part of my day 🎈#walkinghomefromschool 😘
Jonathan Toews – @jonathantoews
Chicago’s Captain, Toews has a very humble presence on Instagram. Late to the social media game, the Blackhawks player didn’t join Twitter until 2016 and then came Instagram a little later. But he’s gotten the hang of it now, posting about his different charitable work, congratulating his teammates and being an all around good guy presence. And yes, he posts a lot about his girlfriend as well.
@jonathantoews: Not bad for February.
