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?

Its true that she is a big girl. But she is beautiful.

Kaela is a very beautiful woman. Period.

She is very pretty! And who cares if she isnt a size triple 0? Most women are not! Also- to whomever is making negative comments -remember she was pregnant when she was last seen on TV with her brother, however she still looked great! I congratulate her- finally the fashion business is taking advantage of “ALL” beautiful women! I wish her nothing but success!!!

I think she is gorgeous! So what if she isn’t anorexic looking like the rest of them. People judge others so much it is pathetic. I am a small girl myself I always have been but, I do not think that is what makes a girl beautiful.

Wow…she is beautiful! So excited for you! It isnt supposed to matter your size as long as you have a good heart. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder for sure. Until you have been this size, dont judge.

I’m 6 foot tall, 180lbs and wear a size 14 and when you hear that you would think that I am a little thick but I’m average considering that I am tall. Its all how you carry yourself! I think she is very pretty!

Kaela congratulations too you! Missy you are a HATER. What do you think plus size stands for a size 6?! As the saying goes, “If you do not have anything nice to say, do not say anything at all”. Keep your narrow minded comments to yourself. People like you give others eating disorders.
