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?

you have to be anorexic or fat to be a model. What happened to the healthy size 6-8. Why arent we using them as models? Gosh this world is messed up.

I think she’ll do great! People seem to forget that when Marilyn Monroe and the rest of the ladies from back then were on top they now would be considered plus size they were never stick thin girls! Plus size now is what men used to find absolute beauty in back then. The lowest size I believe Marilyn reached was size 12 so people need to sit back and realize seeing someones bones through their skin is not so attractive good for Kaela I hope she goes far…

I think she’s very pretty.

Where are the sized 6-8 people. They are the healthy weight. Not 10-20. That is not healthy. Some say you might look good, but you are not healthy. Curvy looks a lot better than being a stick, but there is a healthy curvy and sizes 10-20 are not it!

She and I are the same height, and she is a little bigger than me and I’m a size 18. So I would guess she’s a 22. It doesn’t matter, of course, but I don’t believe the size either. Her stats on their website say she’s 5’10” and 155 lbs. When I weighed 155 lbs, I was a size 6 or 8, so the weight they’re claiming is false as well. 155 lbs on a woman who is 5’10” is actually really really slender.

I’d rather be a larger woman than ignorant like Missy and Miriam. Kaela is a beautiful woman and I wish her all the best. I sense certain children previously named are jealous!

Congrats to her! I personally think she’s beautiful! I don’t give a flying F about her size, nor do I care if they hire a size 0 model or 6, 10, or 30. In the real world we’re all different shapes and sizes. And to those saying “I wear a size “blank” She CAN’T be that size” Are you kidding me????? People carry weight differently, sometimes on their butt, legs, waist upper body, etc., She may very well be her size and just happen to have a different body than you. Ever consider that one??
