If you think Kaela Humphries, Kris Humphries’ sister, looks strikingly different now than she did while visiting her brother on Kourtney & Kim Take New York, you’re right.
"I've been working with a trainer and lost 30 pounds over the past six months," Kaela tells BuzzFeed. "My goal was not necessarily to lose weight, but you want to be at consistent measurements."
The 29-year-old brunette stunner, who recently signed on with FORD models’ plus-sized division, currently works in medical supply sales in Minnesota, but will be moving to New York in April to pursue her modeling career.
Not unlike her brother, who is currently embroiled in a very public divorce with Kim Kardashian, Kaela is no stranger to public criticism. She reveals that some people “think she just woke up” one day and decided to model — she’s actually been preparing for it for a long time — while still others have brutally attacked her for her size on social media.
“I’ve refrained from reading posts on Twitter because I’m actually a nice person and people are so mean,” she admits. “Sometimes people are like, wow she needs to work out. I’m a size 16/18 because I’m a DDD in the chest... We can be really hard on each other. I think it would be really nice to see other people being supportive of each other.”
Kaela says it hasn’t always been easy, but she has learned to embrace her figure.
“It took me awhile to grow into my body because didn’t look like every other teenage girl. Now I don’t feel as different because when women get older, their bodies fill in a little bit more. But I have found that I love my body, I love who I am, I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.”
