It looks like the Humphries family has something to be happy about. Twenty-nine year-old Kaela Humphries on Monday (March 5) announced that she signed a contract with Ford Models to join the agency’s plus-size division.
“So excited to be working with the team @fordmodels!” Kaela tweets. “This is going to be a great 2012! Stay tuned:)”
Brother Kris, who had a tumultuous 2011 with his very public and short-lived marriage to Kim Kardashian, couldn’t be happier.
“Congrats to my sister @kaelahumphries for officially signing with Ford,” tweets Kris.
According to E!, Kaela has some experience. She was previously signed to Wilhemina and made her modeling debut at the 2011 Richie Rich fashion show. Kaela also appeared in the first episode of The CW’s “Remodeled.”
“There’s a word that I can’t stand, this word ‘plus-size’ model,” said “Remodeled’s Paul Fisher in January. “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. They should call our models skinny people. The whole thing is wrong. It’s backwards. It doesn’t matter if she weighs 160, 180 — it’s completely irrelevant.”
