LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Kylie Jenner had an unusual reason for missing the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday.
The 19-year-old reality star revealed in a tweet that she skipped the annual awards ceremony because her dog Bambi went into labor.
"For those asking.. I was planning on going to AMA this year but Bambi went into labor so I'm here taking care of puppies," she told her 18.8 million followers.
Jenner later revealed that her dog Norman fathered Bambi's babies. She got Norman, an Italian greyhound, for Christmas in 2014 and welcomed Bambi, also an Italian greyhound, the next year.
"Yes I knew [she was pregnant] but I just wasn't planning on breeding my dogs. It only takes one time people lol," the star wrote.
"They r so cute this has been an amazing experience," she added of the puppies. "No names yet! I'm trying to learn their personalities ... 2 puppies. I'll be keeping them both."
Jenner also shared several posts with her dogs on Snapchat, writing, "The best accidents to ever happen Norman & Bambi's babies." The puppies are blue and fawn colored, the same as their parents.
Ariana Grande, Justin Bieber and Drake were among the big winners at the 2016 AMAs. The event also marked singer Selena Gomez's first public appearance since she announced in August that she'll take a break from the spotlight.
