Pregnant Kim Kardashian says North’s Jerusalem baptism ‘was so special with our new baby in my belly’ …as she shares flashback snaps
She may be spending the day at Disneyland with her daughter and family to celebrate North West’s second birthday, but Kim Kardashian also found time for some sober reflection.
The pregnant mom used her Instagram page on Sunday night to share images from little Nori’s baptism in Jerusalem two months ago.
‘Baptizing North in Jerusalem in an Armenian church with our new baby in my belly was so special,’ she posted.

Flashback: The traditional ceremony took place April 13 in an ancient church in accordance with the rites of the Armenian Apostolic faith. Kim, who knew she was pregnant again, said it was ‘so special’
Kim and husband Kanye took their daughter to Jerusalem to be baptized into the Armenian Apostolic Church in a traditional ceremony held at a 12th Century church within the walls of the Old City.
And as the world now knows, the reality star was already pregnant with longed-for baby number two which clearly added to the solemnity of the moment.
With just Kourtney Kardashian, Nori’s godmother, accompanying them, the family took part in an hour-long ceremony in English and Armenian that culminated in North being anointed on the head with holy water.
In accordance with the practices of the religion, Kim wore a floor-length and long-sleeved gown and covered her head with a white shawl.
Her daughter, then 22 months old, wore a traditional white christening gown while her rapper father wore white pants and a long-sleeved white sweater.

Kim shared photos of herself holding her daughter standing next to Kanye, with his head bowed, as the priest behind them reads aloud from his prayer book.
In another picture, North is seen asleep in her mom’s arms and Kim captions the sweet snap with: ‘Sleeping beauty.’
She also posted a photo of the family visiting another historic site in Jerusalem.
Alongside the photo, Kim wrote: ‘I don’t remember posting these pics of us in Jerusalem. This was where Mary took Jesus to wash him off after he died on the cross.’
