Jessica Alba  had a sweet start to her Mother's Day  weekend in LA on Friday. The actress took the stage at The Helping Hand of Los Angeles Mother's Day Luncheon at the Beverly Hilton with her husband, Cash Warren, and their daughters, Honor and Haven, to accept the organization's mother of the year award. Beaming in a Mary Katrantzou  dress, Jessica shared a romantic kiss with Cash as Honor and Haven looked out at the audience. At one point, Jessica doted on 2-year-old Haven in front of the microphone, planting a loving smooch on her cheek. The family and audience attended the event for a good cause, raising money for Cedars-Sinai hospital's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Later in the day, Jessica donned a jean jacket and floral dress to sign copies of her book, The Honest Life, and hand out gift bags at the Baby2Baby's We Love Moms Party. In a recent interview , Jessica spoke about how her mom influenced her to become a strong woman in Hollywood. "Where I was from, you had to answer to a man if he was the breadwinner. My mom told me that didn't need to be the case for me; I didn't need to rely on a man. She taught me how to hustle. I was determined to be financially independent," she said.
