Alongside a picture of a patchwork quilt and the words Happy Holidays, she wrote to her million followers: ''This year was one of a kind and a kind one to me."

This is the poem:

"There was lots to be done and a whole lot to see.

"Now I have fans, plus a million and four!"
The 31-year-old beauty went on to thank fans for their social media posts and reassure them she cares though she doesn't have time to reply to their messages.

"I keep posting 'cause I know that you care, and I care to post
when I know that you're there."
