Kris Humphries isn’t the only member of his family with a cool job: his older sister, Kaela, just inked a deal with FORD Models’ FORD + division, which specializes in plus-size talent.

“The division that brought you Crystal Renn, Ashley Graham, Candice Huffine and Marquita Pring among others is excited at the prospect of bringing this beautiful, engaging young woman to markets worldwide,” the agency said in a release. “A true size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own.”

The Minnesota native made her runway debut in the fall, walking in the over-the-top Richie Rich show during New York Fashion Week. She also appeared on Kim & Kourtney Take New York, and the recent CW semi-reality show Remodeled.

“There’s a word that I can’t stand, this world ‘plus-size’ model,” Paul Fisher, a longtime modeling agent featured on Remodeled, told Zap2It earlier this year when asked about Humphries. “Kaela, they call her a plus-size model. I don’t even know what this word plus means. She’s normal. She’s perfect. She’s beautiful.” Tell us: Are you excited to see more from Humphries?

Yet another Humphries coming up off of Kim Kardashian

The people who are making negative comments are just haters!! She is not huge. That is such a horrible way to describe her. Funny thing is, is that she is the one with the modeling contract & who will be making alot of money. If she was huge, she wouldn’t have this opportunity. People need to grow up, get mental evaluations for their hate issues & get a life, other than criticizing people who are doing well for themselves!!

Fantastic. Another Humphries who is only in the spotlight because of Kim. That is the only reason Kris has gotten famous.

I think she is beautiful and Missy are you complaining because your bigger than her? SO rude…comments made from jealousy!

I think Kaela is a gorgeous girl I don’t think that she is a big girl because I think she is around 6’2″ or 6’3 so if you think about she is the right size for her height. Why do people think you have to be a size 2 to be perfect? She looks great and is more mature than some of the KK clan put together.

Missy.. I doub’t you look like the princess of Monaco so you may want to keep your hateful comments to yourself… Where is it written that you have to be a size 0 to be beatutiful? Good for her for not letting ignorant small minded individuals like you keep her from accomplishing her dreams. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. It just so happens Missy’s are cross-eyed.

i wear a size 4 and i think that any size is fine- but she just trying to get into fame because she had a 72 day run in with the kardashians aren’t her 15 minutes up yet?

Being Real on

This young lady is absolutely gorgeous and she does not need a ton of makeup either. Natural Beauty. I love both Kaela and Kris Humphries. They are REAL,NORMAL Americans, unlike the KKK’s. All the very best to you Kaela, you deserve only wonderful things as does your brother Kris. XO
