The 22-month-old daughter of reality television star Kim Kardashian and her husband, rapper Kanye West, was to be baptized Monday at the Cathedral of St. James, an Armenian church in the Old City of Jerusalem.

West, Kardashian and their daughter, North West, as well as Kardashian sister Khloe, landed in Israel for a private visit Monday, following a roots trip to Armenia.

The celebrities and their entourage had originally planned to stay at the new Waldorf Astoria hotel in Jerusalem, but reportedly switched to another hotel after their plans to stay at the Waldorf Astoria were leaked to the public.

An Israeli security firm that specializes in protecting VIPs reportedly was hired for the visit.

They were scheduled to visit the Western Wall and other Jerusalem sites, where they reportedly will take some footage for their reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” and it is rumored that the sisters will make a trip to the Dead Sea.

They reportedly will travel from Israel to Jordan.

In January reports emerged that Kardashian and her two sisters were planning to buy a Tel Aviv apartment worth $30 million.
