Kim Kardashian & Kanye West had North baptized in Jerusalem’s Old City


Here are some photos of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West and North West in Jerusalem yesterday. They finished their tour of Armenia and then flew to Israel for some more sightseeing, apparently. Kim, Yeezus and North went to the Armenian St. James Cathedral in Jerusalem’s Old City so that North could be baptized. I didn’t realize that North hadn’t been baptized until now? How was that not a very special episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians before now?

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West had their 22-month-old daughter, North, baptized in Jerusalem on Monday, the reality star’s rep confirms to PEOPLE. According to The Jerusalem Post, the ceremony took place at Cathedral of St. James in the historic Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, which goes back to the 4th Century AD.

“They flew [into Jerusalem] especially for [the baptism],” a close family source tells PEOPLE. “They knew it was close to Armenia and it was always a dream to come to Jerusalem. There’s an Armenian quarter and they did it at this old beautiful church. It was epic. So beautiful.”

The Kardashian-West family and Khloé Kardashian, who was named North’s godmother according to E!, touched down in the Holy Land on Monday after a five-day trip to Armenia. They’ll leave for Jordan on Tuesday, TMZ reports.

Well… good for them? I’m not religious at all but I’ve always wanted to see Jerusalem. At the very least, Kanye and Kim should be applauded for getting out of their comfort zone of LA-to-NY-to-Paris, you know?

Kim and Kanye also had dinner with Jerusalem’s mayor, Nir Barkat, at a restaurant called Mona. Barkat told reporters that “they raised a toast to Jerusalem and he asked the couple to be ambassadors of Jerusalem and tell all that Everyone is welcome in Jerusalem.” Seriously. Ambassadors of Jerusalem?!

And finally, the night before the group left Armenia, Kanye did a surprise concert. And at the end, he walked into a lake/pond thing and got swarmed by fans. Here’s the video:

    What…As if Israel didn’t have enough of a bad reputation they want these two as Ambassadors? Disappointed in my country. Just no.

    Jerusalem is stunning, however! My dad grew up within walking distance of the Kotel.

    • Hannah says:

      Well as bad as Kim and Kanye are, they haven’t really violated any human rights.

      • Anna says:

        LOL yes Hannah!!!!

        on another note – has anyone seen the pics of North holding Kim and Kanye’s hand and them swinging her back and forth? The pictures are adorable, North looks ecstatic and Kanye and Kim are both smiling down at her.

  2. Mia V. says:

    If they become ambassadors, Jesus will come down and slap some people.

  3. mia girl says:

    Mrs. Sex Tape and Mr. Ego were so close to the holiest of holy waters…
    This is what it sounds like, when doves cry.

    • BengalCat2000 says:

      Lol! @ Mia girl

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      So surprised he didn’t walk on top of the water.

    • norma says:

      Haha that song from Romeo and Juliet 1996( Orginally Princes song tho)! So true. You know Kim had ‘made it’ when she is meeting the likes of the POTUS and other world leaders and politcians now. Sheesh, when did she get to Angelina Jolie level of these kinds of realtionships with polticans and religious leaders and all? Its sickening!

      • Mia V. says:

        Kim is so dumb she wouldn’t mind to sit with Hitler or Stalin to have some attention.

      • fadad says:

        That says more about the POTUS and other politcians who meet with these two nitwits. I hope the future POTUS isn’t as celebrity obessed as the Obamas are.

  4. Joy says:

    Ok in that top pic, her face looks like Big Ang from Mob Wives.

    • FingerBinger says:

      Please don’t insult Big Ang.

    • PinaColada says:

      Oh. My. God. I think its just a bad/odd photo. Because if that’s the real deal and the rest are smoke and mirrors, then she looks so old, and so strange. It’s actually really sad.

    • MCraw says:

      Omg yeah…. I thought it was an old lady leader…. Like I was looking for Kim and North in the pic and genuinely was confused before I realized…. That IS her!

      Man oh man.

  5. Junior says:

    I sincerely did not know they were Christians. If they are, apparently they didn’t read Hebrews 13:5: “Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have.”

    • HurryUp says:

      They’re hardly unusual in that regard, be serious. America is full of ultra wealthy “Christians.”

  6. Mylene - Montreal says:

    She look so weird on the first picture

    • Michelle says:

      LOL her face in that first picture is both hilarious and sad. She looks like a wax figure. I can’t wait to see how Kim’s plastic face ages.

  7. meme says:

    They left Armenia early because they got bored. Or because they weren’t asked to be ambassadors for Armenia (thank you jeebus).

  8. Josephine says:

    I just hope (but doubt) that they kept the baptism a special moment and didn’t film it. I wouldn’t get my child baptized without as much as my family in attendance as possible, for fortunately, I don’t need to create story lines for a tv show and can actually do things for the right reasons….

  9. Shambles says:

    Her face in that top photo is f*king scary. She’s crossed into full on cat lady territory. She does not look human.

  10. Sarah says:

    I read on another site that cameras have been following them everywhere and Kanye has been happily participating and allowing it. I also see he wore his best white sweatshirt for the baptism. How lovely.

  11. Tiffany27 says:

    Why do people make their siblings the godparents? They’re already the Uncle/Aunt. Genuine question.

    • mandygirl says:

      Because, back in the old days, if you died your child sometimes went to a godparent instead of an orphanage. At least, that’s how it was explained to me. It’s not weird to choose a relative. My brother is my daughter’s godfather and my aunt is her godmother. 🙂

    • jc126 says:

      If they’re particularly close to their siblings, I guess. Most of the kids in my family had aunts/uncles as godparents, if not all of them.

    • Jen43 says:

      It might depend on your religion or the strictness of whomever is performing the ceremony. I am Catholic and the priest who baptized my kids required someone in good standing with the Catholic church. He actually wanted a letter stating that the godparent was a member in good standing. I have no idea if this is standard, but most of my friends aren’t church going or Catholic, so I had to go with family members.

      • swack says:

        I’m Catholic and the only requirement was that the godparents were Catholic and even then we didn’t have to prove it. But, we also have godparents that are no longer in the family (ex-husband of my sister-in-law, ex-wife of my brother). So sometimes you are better off just having siblings as godparents.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I am my niece’s godmother. In our church, it just means you’re a special person in her life who will take an interest in her spiritual growth as well as other areas of her life. Even though I am close to all of my nieces and nephews, we have a separate relationship than aunt and niece, and I am blessed by it. My brother (her father) and I are very close. I think that’s why he chose me.

    • Nicolette says:

      Being made a Godparent is an honor and you want to choose someone close to you whom you feel will be in your child’s life. Friends come and go but family is supposed to be steadfast. Alas the best laid plans don’t always work. Unfortunately my pick as my son’s Godmother was my sister-in-law who turned out to be a back stabbing b***h to my husband. We haven’t spoken to her in 10 years and my son is 11. He obviously has no recollection of her. I went to the church and explained the falling out and that the hate is so deep I wanted her replaced as Godmother, they told me they couldn’t do that. So officially she remains with that title.

  12. Nick says:

    Good on Kanye for getting dressed up for the occasion. As far as I can tell his sweat ensemble does not have any holes.

  13. Serena says:

    In the first picture Kim looks like she would look if she had no work done to her upper lip (it’s naturally thin). So because of the various nose jobs the gab between her lip and her nose is huge. Really strange looking. That’s why she has blown her upper lip even more up.
    She was really beautiful before all of her surgeries.

    • word says:

      I think she’s had a fresh injection of botox/juvederm before leaving for Armenia. She is super frozen in the face right now. Why does she keep doing this to herself?

    • norma says:

      True. Kims lips have always been kinda thin. Now they are huge and her nose seems to be looking diffrent each day. She looks awful and Kanye isn’t that good looking either. Why do these two have fame? Are they really that well known around the world? You would think with the kind of attention and press they are getting, its like they are Brangelina or something. Except Brangelina have talent, are incredibliy good looking and atleast do chairty work. These 2 are the exact oppsite of them.

  14. Cali says:

    I hate that they took what could’ve been a really life-enriching journey to her ancestral homeland and turned into a media circus for PR – and to bring along the cameras for her reality show? Just gross. And then she toted around that stupid cut out of Rob’s face on a stick for even more publicity and attention. Poor Rob needs to move to the mid-west and change his name if he ever wants a shot at a normal life.

    • word says:

      I just had to look up pics of Kim walking around with a cut out of Rob’s face because I just didn’t believe it. What was the point of that ? She looks like a moron. She loves attention. There is nothing she won’t do.

    • loresdsd says:

      Miley Cryus did that at one of her concerts. She was dancing around with a cut out board of Selena Gomez in order to mock her.
      Kim is just a copy-cat and pathetic. She took her kid there to get baptized but still had put her brother down by having a cut out of him? This woman is a loser. When Kanye leaves her, that will be the end of her and her ‘career’.

  15. coffeeisgood says:

    Kim please stop messing with your face. She was so beautiful before all the botox and shit she has injected into it.

  16. nene says:

    ‘Married Christian man’ Kanye West and wife take daughter North to the East for baptism.

    And Kim is actually covered up.

  17. KT says:

    Anyone else expecting a pregnancy announcement after this visit to the holy land? I feel like this tour would be a big set up for that. You know, like how North was conceived while on vacation in (Rome? I can’t remember, I’m not a real K fan.)

  18. Anare says:

    She looks like dead-eyed mannequin. If she cared that much about her Armenian heritage she wouldn’t have eraced all traces of it from her face. What a tool!
