Cara Delevingne 'practically adopted' into the Kardashian/Jenner family
Is model du Jour Cara Delevingne about to become Kara?
Models Cara and Kendall Jenner have become firm pals over the last year as the reality starlet has established herself in the fashion industry.
As well as taking to the runway together for the likes of Chanel, they often attend A-list parties arm-in-arm, regularly posting photos of their friendship on social media.
While Cara may be viewed as someone who is strong and independent, it's thought she often gets lonely and has taken to spending time with Kendall's family to help fill a void.
"Her grandmother died last month, which has been particularly tough for her - not least because she hadn't been home much in the weeks leading up to it," a source told British magazine Look.
"Kendall picked up on all of that - she's good at reading people - and went out of her way to introduce her to the whole Kardashian family. Of course, with Cara's natural charisma, they loved her from the word go, and they're very protective of her. Nowadays, it's like they've practically adopted her."
Cara would have become familiar with the clan - which includes Kim Kardashian and her sisters Kourtney and Khloé, along with their mom Kris Jenner - from reality TV show Keeping Up with the Kardashians. It's thought their tight family unit is just what the British beauty craves while away from home.
And it's not just the females Cara has become close to - the men of the pack have taken a shine to the 22-year-old too.
"Rob [Kardashian] and Scott [Disick, Kourtney's boyfriend] treat her like a baby sister, and Kanye is particularly keen to hang out with her. Of course, the fact that she's fashion royalty goes a long way in that house," the insider noted. "They all see her as the ultimate English 'It' girl, and they love that she's chosen them as her American family. But, most of all, they just think she's hilarious."
