Have you heard of “Stassie Baby?” If you haven’t, let us introduce you. Thanks to — of course — the Kardashian family, Anastasia Karanikolaou is starting to carve out a place for herself in the spotlight.

So who exactly is this influencer? Did the BFF break-up of Kylie Jenner and Jordyn Woods have anything to do with Stassie Baby’s rise in popularity?

Life before fame

Prior to social media, Anastasia was an ordinary teen born and raised in California.

But, thanks to platforms like Instagram and YouTube, the now-24-year-old has amassed a net worth of $4 million, which she used to buy her first California dream house in 2020.

Anastasia posted her first YouTube video in November of 2017, and since then, more and more people have become infatuated with Stassie’s everyday life.

She landed her first photoshoot for Nation A-list Magazine in 2014 and has been collaborating with different brands on social media ever since.

With 9.5 million Instagram followers on her account @stassiebaby, Anastasia is considered to be one of the most influential Insta-baddies of the century.

While Anastasia Karanikolaou may not be a household name, the handle “@stassiebaby” might eventually be. With a last name like “Karanikolaou,” it’s no surprise that Anastasia prefers to go by her nickname.

Real or fake?

We all know that social media is fake, and — let’s be honest — so are most users… including Anastasia.

But, at least the influencer is honest about the work she’s had done to her face and body.

The influencer is 5-feet 7-inches tall (170cm) with a perfect body, thanks to several plastic surgeries.

Anastasia opened up about her breast implants in 2017, and since then, she’s been under the knife a few more times. Stassiebaby expressed her satisfaction with both Dr. Ghavami and Dr. Galanis on her Instagram.

The influencer has also historically been very candid about both her Lasik eye surgery and lip fillers.

However, Anastasia opted to have her lip fillers dissolved in 2020 amid the viral body positivity movement.

The Instagram star even vlogged about the process involved in each of her surgeries, saying that she’s never been ashamed of any of the work she’s had done.

“Stassie Baby” even went a step further, and addressed the comments accusing her of lacking self-confidence. Anastasia said if she was insecure, she would have hidden all of her work on social media. But, given that she openly talks about her boob job on the internet? Anastasia considers herself to be very self-confident.

It seems like she’s even inspired other celebrities to open up about their experiences with cosmetic surgeries. Her best friend Kylie Jenner admitted to lip fillers in one episode of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” after years of denying it.

Which, speaking of Kylie…

‘Stassie Baby’ and Kylie Jenner

We all know Kylie Jenner cut former best friend Jordyn Woods out of her life after Jordyn was caught kissing Khloe Kardashian’s boyfriend Tristan Thompson.

Nobody really expected Kylie to find a replacement BFF in the snap of a finger, but lo and behold!

It only took a month after the very publicized falling out between Kylie and Jordyn for Anastasia to enter the picture as Kylie’s new BFF.

While the Kardashian clan claims that the sudden friendship between “Stassie Baby” and Kylie wasn’t due to the feud between Jordyn and Kylie, the timing is definitely suspicious.

However, Kylie and Anastasia go way back. They first met at a Barnes & Noble fan event and immediately became friends.

So, timing aside, it’s no surprise that after their nine-year-long bond, the Kardashian-Jenner family calls her their “sister from another mister.”

It’s also oddly wholesome to see how Anastasia’s relationship with the Jenner sisters has given her a much-needed sense of family.

“My mom struggles with addiction, so that was a big thing,” Anastasia said in a Bustle interview. “We have a very distant relationship. I’ve seen her maybe a couple times in the past few years.”

Anastasia added that her dad often worked 16-hour days as a key grip while she was growing up, so she never had the close family relationship that many children have.

It’s no wonder Anastasia and Kylie formed a close bond right away — even going so far as to get matching tattoos and lip fillers.

“Replacement BFF” rumors aside, Kylie and Anastasia do seem to have a genuine friendship.

“We know too much about each other. We’re stuck with each other forever,” Anastasia said.

The influencer even joked that she and Kylie are “going to move to a farm together and get married.”

Think what you want to think, but they seem happy.

Anastasia Karanikolaou’s romantic partners

Like most social media stars, “Stassie Baby” prefers to keep her dating life private. But, as we all know, it’s incredibly hard for public-facing celebrities to keep anything hidden from their dedicated fans.

Anastasia’s been seen in public with several celebrities, and while fans have speculated quite a bit about her relationships with several men, there are a few relationships we can definitely confirm.

Sammy Wilkinson

Anastasia and Vine-star-turned-musician Sammy Wilkinson were friends for years, and everyone assumed they were together, but they rejected all rumors.

However, a relationship was finally confirmed via Kourtney Kardashian’s Snapchat.

Sammy and Anastasia dated for about a year between 2016 and 2017. After the breakup, the two remained friends — which is surprising given that Stassie claimed that Sam cheated multiple times.

In fact, in 2019 the two of them went on a vacation together and later were seen together at Sammy’s sister’s wedding.

Noah Centineo

Noah Centineo and Anastasia spent a lot of time flirting on Instagram before they were publicly seen getting comfortable with each other at a Halloween party in October 2020.

Fans even circulated some marriage rumors, but since the “couple” kept their relationship out of the spotlight, nothing could ever be confirmed.

When Anastasia celebrated her birthday in July 2021 with all of her friends, Noah was nowhere to be found. Given that he didn’t even wish the influencer a happy birthday on Instagram, we can only assume that if there ever was any relationship between these two, it’s definitely over at this point.

And now, Kylie Jenner

You know us. We’ve mentioned Kylie so often in this post that we just have to take a second to share one of the reality star-turned-makeup-mogul’s previous looks.

In August 2018, Kylie Jenner surprised everyone by looking very cute at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards held at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
