Kim and Kourtney Kardashian recently travelled to their homeland of Armenia to introduce their children to a little more of their heritage.
Keeping Up in Armenia
Kim, Kourtney and Khloé’s father Robert Kardashian was of Armenian descent, and the girls have spent the last decade digging into their ancestral roots.
Kim and Kourt announced this trip on Instagram, with Kim sharing a very cute sisterly photo.
“We’re going to Armenia,” she wrote, revealing the pair’s obvious excitement.
Now Kim’s revealed that during the trip three of her children – excluding North – were all baptised and that Kim herself also took part in her own baptism ceremony.
Sharing some photos of this very significant occasion on her Instagram account, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star spoke a little more of this special day.
“Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip,” Kim wrote.
“So blessed to have been baptised 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.”
Fan account footage on Instagram shows Kim walking into the church with kids North, Saint, Chicago and Psalm accompanied by sister Kourtney and her children Mason, Penelope and Reign.

“The faith of ages”
It’s suggested that North may not have taken part in the ceremony because she was baptised in a Jerusalem ceremony back in 2015.
Kim’s followers loved catching a glimpse of this big day and flooded her social media accounts with positive comments.
“So so so beautiful and heartwarming. God bless Kim,” one posted.
“So happy for you!!!!” another wrote. “I still remember the day I got baptised.”
“It’s nice to see you keep your ancestral traditions and ethnic background alive! Your father would be so proud. God bless yall, Kim!” someone else commented.
“Congrats. The faith of ages will sustain you and your family through any difficulty,” another well-wisher posted.
