Shanann Watts and her two daughters Bella and Celeste, were laid to rest in North Carolina today.

The mom was pregnant with her unborn son Nico when she was allegedly killed by husband Chris Watts.

The funeral for Shanann and her children, which was live streamed on Facebook, began on Saturday at the Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church.

A choir sang "Wing Beneath My Wings" before three coffins were wheeled into the church, accompanied by Shanann's family and friends to the sound of "Amazing Grace."

"We were so blessed to have such a joyful and wonderful daughter whose beauty was that of a doll," her family wrote in her obituary.

Their bodies were found on a property belonging to Chris' former employer and the 33-year-old was charged with nine felonies, including five charges of murder on August 20.

A priest told mourners: "She had dreams to be fulfilled and she worked towards those dreams she wanted to be an exceptional wife and mother … she wanted to make a difference."

Chris Watts next court appearance is scheduled for November 19.

The murder charges carry a minimum sentence of life in prison and a maximum of the death penalty.
