Watch out Kardashians! Kris Humphries's sister Kaela signs plus-size modelling contract

By Iona Kirby

With Kris Humphries as her younger brother and Kim Kardashian as her former sister-in-law, Kaela Humphries should certainly be used to the fame game.

But the 29-year-old is set to become a star in her own right after it was announced that she has signed a contract with top modelling agency FORD.

And the agency are thrilled about adding the plus-sized brunette to their books.

A statement released by FORD said: ‘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.

‘A true size 16-18, Kaela will be in a league of her own.’

As a U.S. size 16-18, Kaela would be a size 22-24 in U.K. clothing.

Earlier this year, model agent Paul Fisher said of the rising star while speaking to website Zap2It: ‘There’s a word that I can’t stand, this world “plus-size” model.

‘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.’

Kaela appeared in semi-reality CW show Remodeled, which featured Paul Fisher.

She has also appeared in Kim and Kourtney Take New York, while her basketball star brother was still dating Kim.

Kaela was even a bridesmaid at Kim’s wedding to Kris on August 20, 2011, but the pair’s marriage lasted a meagre 72 days.

The model made her catwalk debut when she walked in the Richie Rich show at New York Fashion Week in the autumn.

And she is clearly thrilled with her new venture, taking to her Twitter account to write about her excitement.

She posted to her followers: ‘So excited to be working with the team @fordmodels! This is going to be a great 2012! Stay tuned:)’
