With her growing baby bump on full display, Halle Berry stepped out for a midday Mother's Day celebration in Beverly Hills on Sunday.
Wearing flip-flops and a sleek purple halter dress set off by long metallic chain necklaces, Berry, 46, joined daughter Nahla, 5, and fiancé Olivier Martinez, 47, for a casual lunch date at Riva Bella restaurant.
Berry, who confirmed her pregnancy in April, said that Mother's Day is a fun holiday for her because she doesn't have to do the party planning.

Emily Maynard calls Mother's Day a "really special day," but that doesn't mean she's the one getting totally spoiled.
The single mom, 27, who was previously engaged Jef Holm, hopes her daughter doesn't win her usual battle over where to dine on Maynard's special day.
"It's hopefully a day that we'll get to go to my favorite restaurant instead of Ricki's, like usual," the former Bachelorette told PEOPLE on Thursday with a laugh. "I'm just hoping for Mother's Day, we get to go somewhere that has real silverware, real napkins, and I'll be happy."

Even pregnant with her second child – and with a wedding in the works – Halle Berry has admitted that she has no plans to slow down or take time off from work, which is probably why Sunday's holiday will be particularly gratifying.
"What I love about Mother's Day is Mom doesn't have to plan it," Berry tells reporters before hosting the 20th Annual EIF Revlon Run/Walk For Women.
That means fiancé Olivier Martinez and daughter Nahla Ariela, 5, are in planning mode. And the actress couldn't be any happier about the role reversal.

Vanessa Williams already knows what she's getting for Mother's Day this year: a round of applause and, most likely, a standing ovation.
The mom-of-four (Melanie, 25, Jillian, 23, Devin, 20, and Sasha, 13) is marking the holiday from her spot on stage in Broadway's The Trip to Bountiful. "I have a 3 o'clock matinee. No rest for the weary," Williams, 50, tells PEOPLE, adding, "Maybe my kids will surprise me with a dinner afterward."
Beyond the theater, she's also taking time to honor her late grandmothers, who both died after struggling with heart disease. (Her maternal grandmother died at 64 after having a massive heart attack, and her paternal grandmother died at 28.)

Many moms like their families to cook for them on Mother's Day. But where Marcia Cross is concerned, there's a good chance she doesn't mind doing some baking of her own on her special day.
The Desperate Housewives actress, 50, honors her mom Janet by regularly cooking up her brown sugar cookies which calls "yummy," and says combined with milk, they are simply, "heaven."

What's Halle Berry doing for Mother's Day? She has no idea.
"They're in cahoots!" Berry told PEOPLE on Saturday of the scheming by daughter Nahla, 4, and fiancé Olivier Martinez. "She and Olivier have big plans for me, I hear, but it's a secret."
No matter what, things should work out well. "As long as it's with them," Berry says. "Whatever it is will be fantastic."

A greeting card and some fancy flowers are nice, but maybe it's the year to get your favorite leading lady what she really wants for Mother's Day: the secret to youth.
Or, at the very least, a refreshing beverage.
In the spirit of the holiday, here's a cocktail for the fun forever-young mom from Russian Standard Vodka. (Plus, Mom isn't the only one who could enjoy this swill – it's a favorite brand of Peter Facinelli, Zachary Quinto and Shenae Grimes.)
Besides, nothing makes wrinkles less noticeable than a strong drink.

What does a family that reportedly made $95 million in 2010 get their matriarch for Mother's Day? Hint: it's something sweet.
The Kardashian family will be feasting on the traditional Armenian breakfast dish Beeshee on Sunday morning, but as of Saturday night, with just hours to spare, it was still undecided which socialite sister would be preparing the meal.
"We were just having a debate [over] who's going to make it. I think it's going to be Khloé," Kourntey Kardashian told PEOPLE at a City of Hope event in L.A. "We make it the night before. The dough has to rise, and then we all go to my mom's and eat it in the morning."
