Things are looking up! Chirpy Halle Berry collects daughter Nahla from school... day after Olivier Martinez drops criminal charges against Gabriel Aubrey
It has been a trying couple of weeks for Halle Berry following the infamous Thanksgiving brawl between fiancé Olivier Martinez and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry.
But on Monday, the actress looked the happiest she's been in a long time - smiling as she picked daughter Nahla up from school.
The 46-year-old star beamed under a grey cap, which she teamed with a grey jacket, black top and jeans.

She escorted her four-year-old daughter Nahla and a friend out of the school gates in Beverly Hills, before later collecting her from a playdate in Studio City.
Nahla wore a sweatshirt which spelled 'love who you' are in bright colours, along with green jeans.
Halle's cheery demeanour was markedly different from images of her seen in recent weeks, but comes 24 hours after reports that fiancé Olivier Martinez has dropped criminal charges against her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry after their highly publicised fight.

A source told Radaronline.com: 'Olivier informed the LAPD and the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office that he was no longer interested in pursuing criminal charges against Aubry.'
Martinez told the LAPD that he wanted to drop the charges regarding the Thanksgiving day brawl, which resulted in Aubry suffering horrific facial injuries.
The insider added: 'Aubry and Berry worked out a confidential settlement last week that included specific language about how none of the parties - Halle, Gabe or Olivier - would pursue criminal charges against the another.
'All sides managed to agree to satisfactory terms with the focus being on ending the mayhem for the sake of Halle and Gabriel's daughter Nahla.'

The LAPD are said to have turned the case over to the Attorney's Office to determine if any charges should be filed.
Martinez, 46, has been sporting a black hand brace, while Aubry suffered several injuries to his face.
At the centre of the drama was Halle and Gabriel's four-year-old daughter Nahla, and both parties took out an emergency restraining order against each other after the brawl.
Aubry was arrested after the melee, which happened when he was dropping off Nahla at Berry's home.

Police reports on Wednesday indicated Gabriel, 36, threw the first punch and concludes Olivier, 46, acted in self-defence.
Police sources told TMZ the men traded verbal barbs during the altercation but Gabriel never alerted authorities about alleged death threats he received from Olivier prior to the incident.
However, the three stars have since come to an 'amicable agreement', according to Halle’s lawyer, Blair Berk who confirmed it in a handwritten note to E! News.
Nahla has since been reunited with her Canadian model father and was spotted spending time with him on Friday.
