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 hate the term ”plus size”
i think its unnecessary
it feels like its an outside thing
which it shouldnt
we r all human hehe
i mean, it is obvious she isnt thin, why enphasize it?

Correction: *different body shape* I mean she obviously has a different body than you.

Geez people. Models who are too skinny aren’t all that attractive. Look at Whitney from ANTM….she was the most stunning model out there. Let them be free to express who they are. I am obese ( 5’6 220 lbs. ) I’ve also given birth to three kids in three and a half years. There is nothing wrong being ” plus size ” look at Melissa McCarthy!

Hey Andrea, no there is nothing wrong with being “plus sized” as you put it. But there is also nothing wrong with being thin. It’s just as hurtful to say skinny people aren’t attractive. It goes both ways.

Melissa McCarthy…pleez. She is hiding her fat behind funny face. But she is still fat.Girls, there is nothing about lard on your body that is attractive.We don’t have to make excuses to be fat,stop eating so damn much.Size 6-8 is the best no matter what your height.Curvy,yes, and feminine, but not fat. YIKES!

@Miriam-Your hateful comments are a disgrace! I’m a size 18-20! I see nothing wrong with it! Real women have curves!! Not all of us were born to be thin, or a size 10-12!! I’m proud to be a plus size woman! You need to grow up!!

I’ve been both. I like skinny better. BTW, there is no such thing as big boned. Fat people like to think so, it makes us feel better. However, it is only a lie we tell ourselves.

Good things happen to good people. She is really pretty. She does not need to go to Miami beach in bikini to flaunt her body. We need people with good morals to be our models. Congrats Keala I am a big fan of yours.
