Meet The Kardashians' Armenian Cousins: Kourtni, Kara And Krista

In case you haven't heard, the Kardashians are in the middle of taking Armenia now that they've made the pilgrimage to the country of their ancestry for the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on April 24.

Earlier this week, huge crowds greeted the famous family as they arrived at Zvartnots International Airport in the capital city of Yerevan, and on Thursday, Kim and Khloe met with the country's Prime Minister, Hovik Abrahamyan. It was an (extended) family affair as their cousins, Kourtni and Kara, joined them for the meeting. The cousins also have a sister named Krista, who was unable to join them, and you'll be happy to know the irony of another trio of Kardashian sisters who all have names starting with the letter "K" was not lost on Kim.

On Friday, she shared a photo from the meeting, which she captioned, "Khloe & I brought along our cousins Kourtni & Kara Kardashian. We miss you Krista! Yes we have 3 cousins who are sisters that all start with a K too! LOL."


The trip to Armenia is very important to Kim and Khloe, whose late father Robert Kardashian, was a third-generation Armenian American. In another photo from their meeting with the prime minister, Kim wrote, "It was an honor to meet the Prime Minister of Armenia, Hovik Abrahamyan who expressed how proud they are that we are proud Armenians and we have not forgotten our roots! #NeverForget."


Additionally, the trip seems to have brought out Kim's inner feminist. On Thursday she tweeted, "I love how powerful women are and respected so much in our culture!" Later, she posted a photo of herself and Khloe visiting the statue of Mother Armenia and wrote, "This statue reminds visitors of the strong female figures in Armenian history."


The reality star's husband Kanye West and their nearly 2-year-old daughter North are also visiting the country, a fact that has the 34-year-old reality star feeling "blessed."
