He may have landed the cover of TIME’s 100 Most Influential People, but when it came to daughter North and her Jerusalem baptism, dad Kanye West was the first to recognize that a family moment like that was truly memorable.

“He thought it was a really cool and emotional experience,” a source close to the family tells PEOPLE.

And while West might take credit for more than a few things that go on in the entertainment industry, the mogul, 37, was the first to acknowledge a good idea from wife Kim Kardashian West, 34.

“When Kim brought him the idea to have North baptized there in Jerusalem, he thought it was such an incredible idea,” says the source. “He was so happy she suggested it.”

See the First Pics of North West’s Jerusalem Baptism

Leave it to little North West to have one of Christianity’s holiest sacraments in a 12th-century Armenian Apostolic Church in Jerusalem.

“It was such a beautiful experience for my family to have North baptized in Jerusalem,” mom Kim Kardashian West tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue. “Kanye and I are so thankful.”

Six months ago, when Kardashian West, 34, started planning a family trip to Armenia, her ancestral homeland, an idea came to her: use the same journey abroad to visit the holy land of Jerusalem and have North, 22 months, baptized.

On April 14, the reality star and husband Kanye West, 37, flew to Jerusalem for the religious ceremony. Joining the couple was Kardashian West’s sister Khloé, who served as North’s godmother because of the “very special bond” they share, says a close family source.

Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West had their 22-month-old daughter, North, baptized in Jerusalem on Monday, the reality star’s rep confirms to PEOPLE.

According to The Jerusalem Post, the ceremony took place at Cathedral of Sts. James in the historic Armenian Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem, which goes back to the 4th century A.D.

“They flew [into Jerusalem] especially for [the baptism],” a close family source tells PEOPLE. “They knew it was close to Armenia and it was always a dream to come to Jerusalem. There’s an Armenian quarter, and they did it at this old beautiful church. It was epic. So beautiful.”

The Kardashian-West family and Khloé Kardashian, who was named North’s godmother, touched down in the Holy Land on Monday after a five-day trip to Armenia. They’ll leave for Jordan on Tuesday, TMZ reports.

Surprise, surprise: North is more stylish than you.

In an interview with Vogue, the 21-month-old fashionista’s mom, Kim Kardashian West, talks about her daughter’s budding fashion sense.

She’s really particular about what she likes to wear, she’s such a girlie girl,” Kardashian West, 34, says.

“Every day she wakes up and says, ‘Shoes.’ You have to bargain with her — before you change her diaper she needs a pair of shoes on.”

The little girl clearly appreciates the power of a good accessory: She also loves handbags, “and anything where there’s a little bit of glitz,” the reality star adds.

And with Kardashian West and rapper Kanye West as her parents, North has an all-access pass to the entire fashion world.

North West Throws Another Inevitable Tantrum During Fashion Week (But It’s So Cute)

02/15/2015 at 11:45 AM ET

It was the making of a picture-perfect Saturday: one of Fashion Week’s most coveted fashion shows, prime seats, a smiling Kanye West.

But North was not interested in looking at clothes, based on the photos snapped of the teary-eyed 20-month-old while she was sitting on mom Kim Kardashian‘s lap at the Alexander Wang runway in New York City.

The ever-stylish tot has proven herself to be quite the fashion critic this week. Just Thursday, she threw a mini (and, yes, adorable) tantrum at dad West’s Adidas show while she was seated next to Beyoncé and Anna Wintour.

Fellow Wang attendee Nicki Minaj didn’t seem to mind West’s, ahem, feedback — really, who could take any issue with that face?

North West Throws Inevitable Tantrum in Front Row of New York Fashion Week Show

02/13/2015 at 01:15 PM ET

North West, as the product of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, has already had a life of privilege unimaginable to most of the unwashed masses.

Her burpings, feedings, changings — all of them are unfathomably more luxurious than anything you’ve ever experienced in your life. Even her inevitable tantrums occur in places like first-first class (a new kind of first class invented for Kanye) and the moon. (Citation needed.)

Another example: The 20-month-old — who sported a mini bulletproof vest — threw a tantrum Thursday night in the front row of dad’s New York Fashion Week show, seated next to Beyoncé and Anna Wintour (who has yet to comment on North’s tantrum or outfit).

Kim Kardashian has her very own dress-up doll in daughter North.

The doting mom loves putting her 19-month-old in a variety of high-fashion outfits but on Wednesday she might have picked out the cutest outfit of all.

North, who had her hair pulled back into a tight chignon, wore an all-black ballet outfit, complete with dramatic tutu, but avoided a Black Swan moment by complementing the look with pale pink ballet slippers.

“My tiny dancer,” Kardashian, 34, captioned the first pic of her little girl clutching a teddy bear.

Then she followed it up with a shot that showed the little girl following in her daddy Kanye West‘s footsteps — North was pictured tickling the ivories on a grand piano.

“My princess ballerina baby,” the proud mama proclaimed in a third pic.
