US reality television star Kim Kardashian baptised her children on Monday during a visit to her ancestral homeland Armenia, a year after her eldest child North was baptised in Jerusalem.
Kardashian wore a tight-fitting beige dress and stopped to take pouting selfies with local fans as she left Holy Echmiadzin, the Caucasus nation’s main cathedral.
She was accompanied by her four children and sister Kourtney Kardashian. Her husband, rapper Kanye West, was not present.
Three of the children Psalm, Chicago and Saint were baptised. Kourtney also baptised her three kids also, Mason, Reign and Penelope.
The visit was the star’s first to the Caucasus nation since a 2015 trip marking the centenary of the Armenian genocide that saw her husband give a chaotic, impromptu concert in capital Yerevan.
Kardashian is due to give a speech on Tuesday at the World Congress on Information Technology which is being held in Armenia.
Kardashian’s Armenian ancestors on her father’s side emigrated to the United States from an area that now lies in Turkey.
Armenia was the first country in the world to adopt Christianity as an official religion, in the fourth century
