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?

Kaela Humphries is huge. She is very large and I doubt she is a size 16-18, more of a 22-24 size. Her breast must be a size DDD.

She looks very pretty.

Congrats Keala, You have ambition in your blood thats great to see . I am sure you will do great out there. You just have to deal with the “Haters” as you can see from above. ( Just people wishing they were were you). So good skill to you. !!!

To Missy – please keep your hateful comments to yourself.

There is nothing wrong with her – let her be happy.

So what if she’s huge! She is a very pretty girl. There’s a place for even someone who wears a size 22 to model. A large majority of women in this country are plus sized.

I’m all for curves – given that I myself am a size 10-12, but I’m sorry, size 16-18 is not normal. That is too much.

LOL! on

Gina and Missy both of you need to grow up. Missy’s comment wasn’t rally hateful, just ignorant.

LOL! on

She is beautiful…Who cares if she is a 22-24, that is plus sized..Most plus-sized models are 10-12 which is not plus sized.

Sandy on

We are so quick to judge and label people.
Who cares what size you are as long as your healthy. You go girl. Your representing many, many girls and women- who are in your size range. Way more than there are size 0-6!!
