The 38-year-old shared a series of photos of the ceremony to Instagram last week. The cathedral, which traces its history back to the 4th century, is the spiritual centre of the Armenian Apostolic Church, the national church of Armenia.

“Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip. 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,” Kardashian wrote.

According to the deacon of the religious ceremony, Nairi Srapionyan, Kim’s five-month-old son, Psalm was given the name Vardan, while her 22-month-old daughter Chicago and three-year-old son Saint were given the names Ashkhen and Grigor.

Kim and husband Kanye West’s eldest child, daughter North, six, was baptised in the Cathedral of Saint James in Jerusalem’s Armenian Quarter in 2015.

Kim’s sister Kourtney was also in attendance, along with her three children, Mason, nine, Penelope, seven and Reign, four. While the 40-year-old was also christened, it is not known whether her children were, too.

Kim has spoken about how important her faith is to her in the past.

“We don’t share it much, but we’re really religious,” the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said in a 2018 interview with Vogue.

“We are very Christian — and our work ethic and our discipline comes from so many years at Catholic school.”
