Kim Kardashian Returns to Armenia to Attend WCIT, Baptize Kids


YEREVAN (Daily Mail) — Kim Kardashian appeared in great spirits as she touched down in Yerevan, Armenia, with her children North, six, Saint, three, Chicago, 20 months, and Psalm, four months, ahead of her younger three kids’ baptism on Monday, October 7.

The TV personality, 38, who was also joined by older sister Kourtney, 41, and her brood, Mason, 9, Penelope, 7, and Reign, 4, waved at onlookers as they strolled across the city ahead of the religious ceremony.

In April 2015, make-up mogul Kim and her husband Kanye West, 42, baptized their eldest daughter North into the Armenian Apostolic Church in Jerusalem, which was held at a 12th-century church within the walls of the Old City.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashian (KUWTK) star slipped into a clingy grey maxi dress, while her children were dressed in traditional cream robes.

Kim is also set to attend the World Congress on Information Technology (WCIT) event, four years after her first visit to Armenia.

The Vogue cover star was expected to discuss her beauty empire at the event, after recently hinting she’s planning to produce her shapewear brand SKIMS in her ancestors’ homeland.

The event — held between Sunday and Wednesday — sees the world’s leading academics, technologists and entrepreneurs host sessions on technological advancements, as well as artificial intelligence, virtual reality, cybersecurity and climate change.

This year’s WCIT follows the theme The Power of Decentralization: Promise and Peril.

The convention aims to explore the positive and negative impact of information and communication technology on profits and prosperity, safety and security, democracy and humanity.

Feeling giddy about her trip, Kim – whose family fled the country and relocated to California in the early 20th century – tweeted: ‘Almost 3 am in Armenia and I can’t sleep I’m so excited to be here and see everyone!’

Kim rose to fame as a reality star on E!’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007, but has since transformed into a savvy businesswoman – boasting a series of successful make-up, clothing and perfume lines.

The media personality is said to boast a net worth of $370 million. Most recently, the brunette beauty launched her shapewear line, Skims, which reportedly made $2 million in minutes, according to TMZ.

The mother-of-four revealed her plans to produce the range in Armenia last month.

The Armenian National Committee of America tweeted at the time: ‘Thank you @KimKardashian for considering #Armenia as a future site for @skims production!

‘We look forward to your upcoming trip to Armenia, value all you do to share our heritage, and love and respect your family’s passion for #Armenian #Genocide recognition.’

She replied: ‘Thank you! I’ve been working extremely hard on this matter and hope my trip to Armenia will bring some amazing news because I have big plans!’

In April 2015, Kim visited Armenia with sister Khloe, 35, mother Kris Jenner, 63, husband Kanye and their daughter North.

During their visit, the reality stars laid red tulips at the memorial commemorating the victims of the Armenian genocide 100 years ago.

The group visited the eternal flame of the Armenian Genocide Memorial Complex on the outskirts of Yerevan as part of an eight-day tour of the country.

Meanwhile, the release of Kanye West‘s much-anticipated new album, Jesus Is King, has been pushed back a number of times.

The record’s latest delays still didn’t stop the hip-hop legend from going into full promo mode on in New York last week.

After delivering a dose of his Sunday Service performance at a church in Queens last month, the musician played master of ceremony during his Jesus Is King listening experience at the United Palace in Manhattan.

Being the proud wife and mother, Kim recorded some of the night’s festive moments and shared them on her Instagram Story.

‘So last night during Kanye’s screening North and Saint decided to stand in front of the screen and do some dance moves,’ the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star wrote along with some quick clips of her children’s performance.
