Continuing their tour of Kardashian heritage, Kim and husband Kanye West took their daughter, North West, to Jerusalem to be baptised. After a whirlwind five days exploring Armenia, the couple arrived in the holy city with their 22-month-old daughter and Kim’s sister, Khloé Kardashian, on Monday (April 13).

Following their arrival, the family were pictured visiting the Armenian St. James Cathedral in Jerusalem’s Old City where little North was welcomed into the Christian faith with the baptism.

Archbishop Aris Shirvanin, an Armenian church official said: “Kim Kardashian’s daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church.

He added: “All I know is that she’s a famous personality. I don’t know her in person. In any case she is welcome with her family.”

North and her rapper dad were dressed in white for the church visit, while Kim wore a neutral striped dress and showed off her stunning diamond wedding ring as she carried her daughter past the waiting crowds.

During their visit the family are also expected to tour holy sites including the Western Wall, Judaism’s holiest prayer site in the Old City, before continuing to Jordan on Tuesday.

Kim’s trip to Israel follows her once-in-a-lifetime journey to her homeland Armenia to explore her roots. The 34-year-old was warmly welcomed during her stay, which saw her join her famous family to meet the country’s prime minister, visit historical monuments, as well as Kanye perform a surprise concert for locals on Sunday night.

Both Kim and Khloé have been keeping fans up to date with the trip on social media, which is being documented for the next season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and comes ahead of the 100th anniversary of the tragic genocide on 24 April.

The siblings travelled without their sister Kourtney Kardashian, who expressed her regret at not being able to join the trip due to having three young children to look after.
