Oscar Pistorius has planned a memorial service for Reeva Steenkamp.
The track runner, charged with premeditated murder for the Valentine's Day death of his girlfriend, reportedly was slated to hold the service at his uncle's home in Pretoria, South Africa, on Tuesday evening. Pistorius has been staying with his uncle since being released on bail on Feb. 22.
"Oscar specifically requested the memorial service as he continues to grieve and remains in deep mourning for the loss of his partner Reeva," reads a statement released by Pistorius' rep. "Since it is such a sensitive issue, Oscar has asked for a private service with people who share his loss, including his family members who knew and loved Reeva as one of their own."
The memorial service comes exactly one week after the 29-year-old Steenkamp was laid to rest. Friends and family members gathered together on Feb. 19 in Port Elizabeth, South Africa, to say goodbye to the late model.
"There's a space missing inside all the people that she knew," Reeva's brother, Adam Steenkamp, told the press at the time. "Everyone is sad understandably, but at certain points we were smiling whilst remembering Reeva because we only have good memories of her."
Three days later, a judge granted Pistorius bail and released him from custody, stating there was no evidence the Olympic athlete was a flight risk as he awaits trial.
First-time dad Nick Lachey knows all about rocking a baby to sleep. Now he wants to help other kids get their rest, the Associated Press reports.
His new album, "A Father's Lullaby," will be released in a few weeks. It features 12 songs, including classics such as "You Are My Sunshine" and "Brahms Lullaby." The album also features four original tracks that Lachey co-wrote, inspired by his own baby.
The 39-year-old singer and his wife, TV personality Vanessa Lachey, welcomed their son, Camden, last September.
"A Father's Lullaby" will be available on iTunes and Amazon on March 13. It will be in stores in April.
Lachey will release a new album, "2.0," in May with his group, 98 Degrees.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West may have a baby on the way, but they're still one smokin' hot couple.
The parents-to-be posed nude for French magazine L'Officiel Hommes, and in a very steamy cover shot, the sexy pair are wrapped up in each other's arms in an intimate embrace, E! News reports.
Kanye's muscular back is on full display as he holds his ladylove close, while Kim makes a sensual expression and clutches the back of Kanye's head with her perfectly manicured hands.
The French magazine isn't the only cover the E! star has been gracing as of late. The mama-to-be is also featured on Cosmopolitan's April cover, and she opens up about marrying her man inside the issue:
"[Marriage] is something I know that we both want in our future, but I don't have this sense of urgency about it," she told the mag. "I have this best friend who understands me and helps me through all my tough experiences, and vice versa, you know? It just feels like this is it for me."
