Kris Jenner is reportedly fearing for the future of Kendall and Kylie now that her niece is starting to make a name for herself. According to a recent Radar Online article, there’s a secret Kardashian cousin who is launching a successful modeling career that may outshine the youngest Jenner girls.

Natalie Zettel is Kris Jenner’s sister Karen’s daughter, which makes her a first-cousin to Kylie, Kendall, Kim, Khloe, and Kourtney. However, until now, she’s stayed out of the limelight and off Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Natalie has launched a modeling career, and it certainly seems like the 18-year-old will shortly be strutting in her famous family’s footsteps.

Natalie, who has an increasing number of followers on Instagram, bears a striking resemblance to the Jenner girls, especially Kendall, and it’s this specific resemblance that has many wondering if Natalie’s modeling career could possibly surpass Kendall’s. Moreover, the “secret” Kardashian cousin also shares the same interest in modeling and “selfie-taking.” 

With her striking good looks and connection with the reality tv family, many are wondering why she hasn’t started a career in showbiz. In fact, Natalie has not even made any appearances on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. It’s no wonder the Kardashian and Jenner families have kept Natalie in the background – as her mum Karen Houghton has made some pretty choice comments about sister Kris Jenner in the past.

“She came out of the womb saying where’s my Ferrari?” Karen said four years ago. “You know what drives Kris? Power, power, power. And money. Fame and fortune ruin people.

“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.”

However, despite her mum’s tense relationship with the family, Natalie seems to have stayed close to her cousins – posting pictures with Kendall and Kylie and even supporting Kendall on Twitter. The aspiring model has donned multiple swimsuits from the sisters’ clothing line and even featured Kylie’s famous lip kit in one of her posts.

Zettel hasn’t opened up much about her life as a model, but in 2013, she did tell Star Magazine about her relationship with her famous relatives, saying that she was closest with Kendall and Kylie because they’re “closest in age.”

She was also quick to admit that her family life was the “exact opposite” of that of the Kardashians and Jenners, saying, “We are crazy, but we do normal people stuff. We have our fun obviously. We go to the beach, my mom goes to work, I go to school.”

Radar Online also pointed out that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters have not even followed her on Instagram. This is despite the fact that she followed the famous sisters on social media and even featured some of their products on her account. These sparked speculations that the Kardashian-Jenner sisters are somehow threatened by Natalie’s potential. However, such claims have yet to be proven.

It doesn’t seem like she sees her cousins too often, though she has a few pictures here and there with her famous cousins on her social media handles. And, of course, there are plenty of super glamorous modeling shots on her Instagram page.

We have a feeling that she’s well on her way to taking the modeling world by storm. And if she ever needs some advice about modeling, we’re sure she knows exactly who to call.
