Kim Kardashian-West wants to bring up her three youngest children immersed in the Christian faith, and for her, getting them baptized in Armenia is a sacred and special event in their lives.

Kim and North in the Cathedral

In the photos, Kim was joined by her 6-year-old daughter North, who lit some candles along with her mom. 

The reality TV star donned a long-sleeved mermaid-style dress for the occasion, while North wore a two-piece outfit with a beaded necklace. 


Thankful for Armenia

Grateful for the experience, Kim thanked the country for welcoming them with open arms and for giving them a once in a lifetime experience that they'll cherish forever. 

“So blessed to have been baptized along with my babies at Mother See of Holy Etchmiadzin, Armenia’s main cathedral which is sometimes referred to as the Vatican of the Armenian Apostolic Church. This church was built in 303 AD.”

While her three youngest kids got baptized in Armenia, North was baptized in Jerusalem at 22 months old.

Meanwhile, Saint, Chicago, and Psalm West joined their cousins, Mason, Penelope, and Reign during their baptism ceremony in the "Vatican" of the country of Armenia. 


Enjoying Armenia

Kim was open about visiting the country, not making it a secret that she and Kourtney were there with their children. 

"Almost 3 am in Armenia [flag emoji], and I can't sleep. I'm so excited to be here and to see everyone."


Providing Jobs for Armenians

Aside from having their kids baptized in the country, Kim also hopes to create business ties with people there, bringing in Skims production in Armenia to provide more jobs. 

"I will be visiting Armenia in the next two weeks, and hope to seek ways I can increase trade, and hopefully create jobs for Armenians, which includes @Skims production there in the future."

While Kourtney and Kim had no trouble accompanying their kids, visibly missing were Scott Disick and Kanye West who couldn't make the trip.
