Kendall Jenner looks to be the newest brand ambassador for adidas Originals. The supermodel announced her collaboration with the brand to her 81.3M followers on Instagram yesterday, captioning the Boomerang "officially joining the adidas fam! @adidasoriginals #adidasAmbassador #adidasOriginals."

In Jenner's post, she's seen wearing an Adidas three-stripe tracksuit and driving a golf cart. The wall behind her reads "welcome to the family." Although the announcement may come as a surprise to some, on May 18th she posted a #tbt childhood picture of her wearing an Adidas t-shirt, before the deal had been announced.

Brother-in-law Kanye West has a long-running adidas partnership, designing his successful YEEZY line with the brand, while sister Kylie Jenner stars in shoe rival Puma's "Fierce" campaign. We'll have to wait and see what's to come of Kendall's newest role at Adidas.
