Jerusalem - 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 Kardashians fended off swooning fans as they entered the Saint James Cathedral in Jerusalem's Old City. Kim appearing overwhelmed, clutched the tiny girl as she was escorted by Kanye, 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 baptised 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."

There were no details on the ceremony, but Khloe Kardashian has reportedly been made the Godmother of North West and was only too happy to celebrate the occasion with the West 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.
All were captured on camera disembarking their plane and the images featured prominently on Israeli websites. They were quickly whisked away in a dark black SUV to a hotel in Jerusalem. Paparazzi did their best to keep up with their movements.
