Two months ago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West traveled together to Israel with their daughter, North West and Kardashian’s sister, Khloe Kardashian.

The celebrity couple had their daughter baptized at the St. James Cathedral in the Armenian Quarter of the old City of Jerusalem, and was reported to have spent approximately $1 million on the entire trip.

Prior to their visit to Israel, the TV stars explored their heritage in Armenia.

While the Wests and Kardashians were present in Israel, the trip was thoroughly documented. An Israeli ultra-Orthodox newspaper even reported on the celebrities’ visit by covering Kardashian’s figure in a photo in the newspaper.

Now, almost 2 months later, Kardashian has released some new photos from the baptism on her Instagram account.

In one photo, Kardashian stands modestly wearing a traditional headscarf, holding North. North is dress in a silk white gown, while West is dressed in a white shirt and ripped white pants. The priest stands in between the couple, reading the bible.

In another photo, Kardashian comments, “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.”

The photo accompanying this caption showcased West, Kardashian and their daughter crouched down touching the religiously significant monument.

The third photo displays Kardashian holding her sleeping baby, while the baptism ceremony is taking place.

Kardashian is currently pregnant with another child, who is due in early December. For now, we can only wonder if the celebrity couple will endure such extravagant measures to baptize their new baby – and what it’s name will be. North West was certainly an interesting choice.
