The Kardashian-Jenner clan is almost everywhere in the media. What do I start with? The latest pregnancy news about Kylie or the fact that Kim is crying over some paparazzi bikini shots from her holiday? Not sure about when this craze will stop or will it ever, but that’s why we are here to tell you there are other members of their family who are absolutely gorgeous, and worthy of attention, too. Natalie Zettel, who is the 18-year-old daughter of Kris Jenner’s younger sister Karen Houghton, looks more than fabulous. Sorry Kardashian fans, but she is putting the whole “clan” in her shadow!
Natalie, who is from San Diego County, California, has somehow managed to be out of the public eye until recently, despite inheriting many of the great looks that run in the family genes.
The teenager is Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob Kardashian’s first cousin, as well as their half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner.
She’s got a thin frame and long dark hair, which some have found to be in the Kendall Jenner mold. Also, much like her 21-year-old cousin, she is also pursuing a career in modeling. Natalie is not at all shy about her connections to the famous family and she often pays them tributes on her social media accounts.
Just recently, Natalie took to her Twitter account to wish Kylie a happy birthday, sharing a photo of them cuddling up. Moreover, she spent Mother’s Day with their mutual grandmother, Mary Jo Campbell, whereas in February she posted a photo of herself wearing one of Kendall + Kylie’s swimsuits.
It was during a 2013 interview with Star magazine that Natalie opened up about her relationship with the sisters. To her, they are simply family, despite their wealth and fame.
“They’re my blood. They’re always going to be there — I’m stuck with them — but I love my family. I’ve known them since I was a little toddler,” she explained.
“I’m closest with Kendall and Kylie because we’re close in age. It’s not weird for me to have a large, famous family because I knew them before all the fame. People are like, ‘Oh my Gosh! You’re cousins with the Kardashian family? Is that weird?’ And I say, ‘No.’ They’re nothing special. In my eyes, they’re just my family.”
She hasn’t made her appearance on their reality show yet, although she often hangs out with them. There were rumors that her absence was due to Kris Jenner wanting to keep her sister out of the spotlight out of fear that she would embarrass the family.
Interestingly, Natalie’s mom Karen, is also known as the “crazy aunt” in the family. Apparently, there are huge differences between the sisters.
In an interview with InTouch, Karen said that Kris “came out of the womb saying, ‘Where’s my Ferrari?”
“She’s a workaholic, a hustler. It’s about wanting power. It’s Gucci purses, Bentleys, all the things I don’t care about that she does. You do these things because you are unhappy. Money is Kris’ whole world,” she added.
We will probably see more of Natalie as she grows up, as her relationship with the Kardashian-Jenner children is obviously genuine and tight-knit.
