After a few rough months in a custody battle
with her ex, Halle Berry
had something to celebrate this week – daughter Nahla's third birthday.
Following a work trip to New York last week and a weekend outing to Miami, Berry returned to Los Angeles
on Monday and has been spotted spending time her little girl in Malibu.
On Wednesday, Berry threw a small birthday party for Nahla at her Malibu beach house, according to a source. The house was decorated with pink, purple, blue and green "Happy Birthday" balloons.
The 3-year-old celebrated with her mom and a few friends, although there was no sign for her father Gabriel Aubry or Berry's boyfriend Olivier Martinez.
