Kylie Jenner missed the American Music Awards after her dog Bambi gave birth.

The 19-year-old beauty took to Twitter to share the news that her Italian greyhound had puppies just as the bash kicked off at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on Sunday evening (20.11.16).

She wrote: ''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 (sic)''

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' beauty has said she is going to keep the two pups despite not intending to breed her dog.

Asked by one of her followers if she plans on keeping them, she wrote: ''Yes I knew but I just wasn't planning on breeding my dogs. It only takes one time people lol ... Yes they r so cute this has been an amazing experience (sic)''

Kylie also has pet pooch Norman - who is also an Italian greyhound - and she is determined to give them the life of luxury and has even built them their own space, complete with a plush bed and fancy fireplace, inside her lavish mansion in California.

Taking to her Snapchat, the 19-year-old beauty recently uploaded photo of her furry friends' abode.

She wrote alongside the shot: ''Norman & Bambi's room (sic).''

It's not known if her other puppy Penny, who was given to her by her best friend Jordyn Woods for her recent birthday in August, has a separate room or whether she shares with Kylie's little sausage dog Ernie in a different area of the expensive house.

The dogs also have their own Instagram profile, which features photos of them, and they regularly feature on Kylie's Snapchat.
