Kris Jenner revealed on last night's shocking episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians that her father was killed in a car accident.

Episode 17 of Season 14 centered around the 62-year-old momager, who was forced to film a legacy video directed and produced by Scott Disick.

"Obviously when you lose a parent things get a little foggy," Jenner said. "Losing my dad was one of the most significant things that has ever happened in my life."

Jenner goes on to explain that her father, Robert Houghton, was an engineer who worked for Boeing. After divorcing her mother, M.J., he was killed while driving with his girlfriend, who miraculously survived the tragic accident.

After calling her mother for support, Jenner learned that a vehicle had "knocked his car off the road" and that he died at the scene.

"We had a stepdad as our father figure who we loved so much," Jenner said before Disick changed topics to ask Jenner, "Who was the first love of your life?"

"The first love of my life is when I met Robert Kardashian," Jenner noted. "My mom had this tradition of going to the racetrack. Because I was not old enough to bet, I had to stand to the side. And that is where Robert asked me out."

And of all the lessons that Jenner would like her kids to adhere to, the most important, according to the matriarch, is to "appreciate the people you love when they are here because you never know when you might lost them."

"I really hope that my kids appreciate the value of having this big enormous family and that they all stick together," she added.
