- Kim was pictured with her children, head covered as she carried out a life-changing event
Reality TV star, Kim Kardashian, recently visited her ancestral home, Armenia, to be baptised. The mother of four took her babies with her to Etchmiadzin Cathedral, considered to be the world's oldest cathedral, built in 303 AD.
Kim shared photos from the spiritual event, for which she covered her hair with a traditional scarf and wore a long-sleeved, turtle neck, ankle-length dress. Her six-year-old daughter was also pictured wearing a white dress as she posed with her mother.
Kim stated that she was glad to have been part of such a memorable trip and went on to describe the cathedral. She said: "Thank you Armenia for such a memorable trip. 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."
About four years ago, Kim and her husband, Kanye, made a similar trip to Jerusalem to have North baptised. Although Kanye didn't go to Armenia with his girls, Kourtney was there with her own children and it was a fully-fledged family affair.
According to most scholars, Etchmiadzin Cathedral was the first cathedral built in ancient Armenia and is often considered the oldest cathedral in the world. Following the adoption of Christianity as a state religion by King Tiridates III, it was built over a pagan temple, symbolising the conversion from paganism to Christianity.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian revealed that her husband, Kanye West, is now saved. The musician has confirmed the release date of his gospel album. Titled Jesus Is King, Kanye’s upcoming album, which contains 12 songs, dropped on 27 September.
