North West Gets Baptized in the Holy Land
On Monday, the 13th of April, North West, the daughter of Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West, was baptized in the Holy Land. The celebrity couple arrived in Israel earlier that day, along with Kardashian’s sister, Khloe Kardashian. The couple and their entourage landed there on a private plane, after taking a five day trip to the Armenia. The family was visiting Armenia in order to reconnect with their heritage, as their father is of Armenian descent.
The Jerusalem Post reported that the family headed to the Cathedral of Saints James in the Armenian Quarter o the Old City of Jerusalem, which is a historic region. The group arrived in a black Sports Utility Vehicle and were immediately overtaken by large crowds of fans awaiting their arrival, as they headed into the building. Inside of the church, North West was baptized.
According to sources, North and Kanye west were wearing all white outfits, while Kim Kardashian West wore a long beige and peach colored outfit. After their daughter was baptized, the Hollywood family joined Nir Barkat, the Mayor of Jerusalem for a meal. Neither Kim nor Kanye have made any comments yet about their daughter North’s baptism, but it has been reported that the couple will be making their departure from Jordan by Tuesday April 14th.
Sources told E! That Khloe was the godmother in the ceremony, and attended wearing sneakers and ripped jeans. The priest acted as the baby’s godfather, which is uncommon, but is an option when there is not another one. The family left Armenia for Jordan after a quite eventful visit, during which Kanye gave a surprise free concert in the country’s capital city, and had to be rescued by security after thousands of fans mobbed him in the water.
