Khloe Kardashian posted a new photo of her daughter, True Thompson, and captioned the image with the word “Kyankus.” Kardashian also included two emojis; a red heart and the Armenian flag. A few minutes after she uploaded the picture, however, she edited the caption to display the meaning of the word “Kyankus” in English.
The Armenian word means “my life.” In Armenian, you might hear someone say “Kyankus Serus,” which means “My life, my love.” You may also see the word spelled “Giakes” or “Im kyank’y.”
As you can see in Kardashian’s Instagram post below, she edited the caption to read, “Kyankus” with the Armenian flag emoji followed by the words “my life.”
This is one of only a few photos that Kardashian has shared of her daughter that wasn’t heavily filtered. Although she has posted pictures and videos of baby True, Kardashian is very careful with what she posts when it comes to her daughter. It didn’t take fans long to notice the caption and wanted to find out what the word “Kyankus” meant, despite Kardashian’s quick edit.
The Kardashians have been very vocal about their Armenian culture and even got an opportunity to travel to Armenia back in 2015. Khloe Kardashian and her sister, Kim, traveled with their cousins, Kim’s daughter North, and her husband, Kanye West, to Armenia. The trip, which was documented on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, was very moving for the family.
“Visiting the Mother Armenia statue in the capital city of Yerevan, Khloe wrote that the memorial ‘symbolizes peace through strength,’ adding that ‘it can remind viewers of some of the prominent female figures in Armenian history. Who took up arms to help their husbands in their clashes with Turkish troops and Kurdish irregulars,'” People Magazine reported at the time.
Robert Kardashian, father of Khloe, Kim, Kourtney, and Rob, passed away in 2003. His grandparents on both sides moved to America in the early 1900s, hoping to give their respective families a better life.
The new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians airs tonight on E!. It is unknown if Kardashian’s newborn daughter will be on the show.
True was born back in April.
“Our little girl, True Thompson, has completely stolen our hearts and we are overwhelmed with LOVE. Such a blessing to welcome this angel into the family! Mommy and Daddy loooooove you True,” Khloe wrote on Instagram after giving birth.
