Kaela Humphries. (Corbis Outline)Kris Humphries' 72-day marriage to Kim Kardashian may have hurt his image, but it seems to have really benefitted his older sister Kaela. The 29-year-old stunner has been signed to a deal with Ford Models' plus-size division, the company announced in a statement on Monday. "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."
The brunette beauty is no stranger to the spotlight. Not only did she make appearances on "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" and "Kourtney and Kim Take New York" — she even served as one of Kardashian's bridesmaids at the now-infamous August 2011 nuptials — but Humphries also strutted her stuff for designer Richie Rich at New York Fashion Week last fall.

The Humphries siblings are super close (there is also another older sister, Krystal), and it was Kaela who actually talked her little brother, 26, into proposing to Kardashian when he initially backed out after a fight with the reality star. In an episode of "Keeping Up," Kris confided to his sister that he was concerned about moving forward with the relationship, asking "What if it gets worse from here?" Somehow, Kaela managed to convince him that Kim K. was "the one." The Humphries siblings. (Splash)
Let's hope she has better intuition when it comes to her modeling career!
