Kim, Kanye In Rio: Couple Mimic ‘Christ The Redeemer’ Statue

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – Kim Kardashian and Kanye West hit Rio for the weekend to take goofy tourist snaps and imitate Jesus Christ.

The celebrity couple opted to miss Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, instead heading to Brazil for the Rio Carnival.

While in the party city, the pair decided to visit the famous “Christ the Redeemer” statue, and mimicked the statue’s outstretched pose as photographers snapped away. The image below writes its own caption.

Prior to their statue visit, Kim and Kanye were papped as they embraced and kissed on the balcony of their hotel.

With Kanye on hand to snap his own pictures, mom-to-be Kim looked ready to party. The reality star wore a long-sleeved hot pink dress with neon yellow heels, an outfit she had earlier discussed on her Instagram account:

“Today’s Outfit- Hot Pink & Hot Yellow #JuanCarlosObando #Louboutin #Brazil”

Kim and Kanye were also spotted enjoying lunch at Rio’s Braseiro da Gávea restaurant.

The couple are expecting a baby in July, though have insisted they wish to keep their child’s life private. Kardashian is hoping her former marriage to NBA star Kris Humphries will be annulled by the time baby Kimye has arrived.
