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?

I’m a size 20 so that means i’m not normal Miriam, i’m too much? That’s the problem with people, you are all so judgemental, who cares what size people are? This is a beautiful woman, a size 16, 18 or whatever she is. Grow up, there’s too many other more serious issues in the world than caring what people weigh!!!

What a beautiful young woman! Mixed race people are some of the best looking!

I’m a 22-24. There is no way she is that big. I would say a 16 is right on. And beautiful.

Can I ask some of you shallow minded people on here who think 16-18 is just horrid. Well you have your opinions, but I would like to know why is it only you anorexic women feel the need to be able to wear nice clothes? She is not modeling clothes for you stick people so keep your opinions to yourself. You don’t hear anyone on hear whining about the women who model for you regular sizes look like they hang over a toilet everytime the eat.
