easter-2014

All of the stars aligned with their families this past weekend to take in some of the Easter Day fun. From posing with bunnies to having their own sets of bunny ears, anyone who was anyone was out enjoying the time with their loved ones.

Spotted posing with a two-piece suit wearing Easter Bunny, singer and soon-to-be mommy Ciara was all smiles as she gave her baby bump some Easter love. Although her fiancé Future was out promoting his new album, his future wife was holding it down on Mommy duty.

Also getting in on the fun, The Carters let the world have a peek in on their day as well. Taking some time to spend with little Blue after their Coachella set, Beyoncé and Hov chilled poolside and even got in on a little egg hunt fun.

Doing it a little less subtle, Alicia Keyz and Swizzy decided to rent a yacht for their family and hit the sea. Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon – not to be overshadowed of course – had an extravagant day planned for #DemBabies as they painted Easter eggs and filled their rooftop deck with presents galore before receiving an at home visit from the Easter Bunny himself.

Taking advantage of the time meant for their loved ones, you can’t help but love seeing the stars in their most vulnerable moments.

Take a look at some of the shots from celebrities and their families below:

Ne-Yo black and white

We’ve been hearing him say it for a little while now, and many fans are hoping for Ne-Yo to return to R&B on his upcoming sixth studio album. While, we didn’t want to count on it completely, following the release of his ‘3 Simple Rules‘ EP on Valentine’s Day, we are getting much more excited for what the singer/songwriter has in store.

“As of right this second my main focus is my new album,” Ne-Yo recently told Billboard’s The Juice. “It’ll be out probably towards the summertime, predominately R&B this time. I had a little stint with the dance music and all of that, which I had a good time with– and I love the audience, I love them for accepting me doing it –but I had to go home on this one. Had to take it back to my roots, and not to say that there won’t be one, maybe two songs on there that the dance crowd can get into, but the majority, the girth of the album, will be R&B.”

Jumping on camera to bring fans what is a soon-to-be classic video, powerhouse vocalists Celine Dion and R&B star Ne-Yo had Good Morning America on hand to catch a few behind the scenes moments.

Matched in brown, white and black attire with gold accessories, both superstars look very comfortable around each other on an L.A. rooftop. Originally stating that he was hesitant about working with Celine, Ne-Yo told GMA:

“The issue for me, initially, was the whole concept of a duet. You know, it’s Celine Dion…and Ne-Yo.”

Following up with her side of the story, Celine admitted that her 13-year-old son persuaded her to do the “duet”. Telling her, “Thee Ne-Yo?! Mom, you don’t even have to listen to the song. You just have to do it.”

Found on her album, Loved Me Back to Life, the 45-year-old veteran songstress and the hitmaking singer/songwriter were able to pick up a few things from one another while creating the new song.
