The Ministry presents: Stars prep for Mother's Day 2010

May 7, 2010 |  4:57 pm


Mother's Day is upon us, and maternal love is blooming all over Hollywood and beyond -- from doting guys showing their moms some love to the busy, bold-named gals with offspring of their own.

The Ministry is happy to bring you the deets on how the stars will spend this Sunday.

The new mommies: Mom-of-the-moment Sandra Bullock will celebrate her first Mother's Day with baby Louis. Bullock's pal George Lopez recently told Us magazine that Sandy is "a caring mother, like all mothers." 

Then there's the curious case of Bethenny Frankel. Reports say the New York housewife is already in labor, about a month early, delivering her and husband Jason Hoppy's first child. Possible proof ...

... that she's occupied giving birth? Her Twitter account has been dark for nearly a whole day!  

The handsome rewards: We know that celebs love to splurge. This year, several tech-savvy moms are receiving the T-Mobile MyTouch Android phone. We're told Brooke Shields, Jennifer Hudson and reality mama Trista Sutter nabbed the gadgets from their families in time for the holiday.

The bundles of joy: Celeb moms are getting serious swag come the weekend, with gifting experts Distinctive Assets sending out baskets of cheer and luxury goods. The package will include Pureology Serious Colour Care products, footwear from Crocs, Belson blow dryers, Belle Ame Bath and Body and much needed liqueur from Godiva.  

Moms on the mailing list for the goods include Amy Poehler, Camila Alves, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Paula Patton, Katherine Heigl and Amanda Peet

Mommies in chief: First Lady Michelle Obama hosted a Mother's Day tea party at the White House on Friday, celebrating three generations of her family under the same roof. 

"Raising our girls in the White House with my mom ... is a beautiful experience," she said of parenting with her husband, President Barack Obama
