Kim Kardashian and husband Kanye West visited a centuries-old Armenian church in Jerusalem on Monday for the baptism of their daughter, North West.
The family fended off swooning fans as they entered the St. James Cathedral in Jerusalem's Old City. Kardashian, appearing overwhelmed, clutched her daughter as she was escorted by West, her sister Khloe and hooded clergymen
"Stop," Kim Kardashian shouted to the crowd. "Stop! It's not safe for the baby," her sister added.
Archbishop Aris Shirvanian, an Armenian church official, said the family had arrived for a baptism ceremony.
"Kim Kardashian's daughter will be baptized and become a Christian officially and a member of the Armenian church," Shirvanian said, slightly perplexed by all the commotion. "All I know is that she's a famous personality. I don't know her in person. In any case she is welcome with her family."
The members of reality TV's first family arrived in a private jet at Israel's international airport on Monday for what was described as a private two-day visit. The celebrities arrived from a high-profile visit to Armenia, where the Kardashian family traces its roots. They are expected to shoot some footage for their reality show in Jerusalem before moving on to Jordan.
