Nicole Scherzinger was treated to a visit by her three "favourite little humans" over the weekend – her adorable nieces. The former Pussycat Dolls singer, who split from on-off boyfriend Lewis Hamilton earlier this year, shared some sweet photos on Facebook of the family's adventure.
More than happy to act as a tourist guide, Nicole brought her nieces and her younger sister Keala to Central Park Zoo. The girls struck a pose in the park, pretending to be lions and roaring at the camera.
Their next stop was a viewpoint over the lake, where Nicole was pictured affectionately wrapping an arm around one of her nieces.
"Family is everything," Nicole Scherzinger wrote on Facebook
"#centralpark #nyc #concrete #jungle where #dreams are made of... Love my #squad. #family is #everything #niecesrule #grateful #blessed," she captioned the photos.
Family is clearly incredibly important to the 37-year-old singer. Nicole's parents separated when she was a baby, and when she was a young girl, she was adopted by her German American stepfather Gary Scherzinger.
She grew up with her younger sister Keala in Kentucky and to this day, the sisters have remained close. Sharing a picture of just the two of them, Nicole wrote: "Had the best weekend ever with my sis and my nieces #squad !!! Love you so much sissy #scherzygirls."

On Friday Nicole couldn't contain her excitement as her relatives touched down in the Big Apple. "Look who just arrived in #NYC!!! My 3 favourite little humans!!! #niecesrule Can't wait for our adventures," the former X Factor judge wrote.
Nicole and her ex-boyfriend Lewis split in February 2015 for the fourth time. The couple had been dating on-off for seven years, and one of the rumoured reasons for their break-up was apparently Lewis' reluctance to settle down and start a family.

Over the summer Hawaii-born Nicole sparked speculation that she was dating Ed Sheeran, after the pair were spotted enjoying drinks at Ed's local pub in Suffolk. The British star also invited Nicole to attend his three concerts in Wembley Arena, London in July, however, the romance rumours have since died down.
