Supermodel Heidi Klum is a supermom.
The “Project Runway” mother of four reportedly saved her son’s life after he got swept away by the ocean waves during a recent visit to the beach.
On Sunday, Klum was at the beach with her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten when her son Henry, 7, got pulled far into the ocean by a large riptide, US Weekly reported.
Henry was swimming with two nannies, who also got swept away, and Klum and Kirsten rushed into the ocean to pull the three swimmers to safety.
"We got pulled into the ocean by a big wave. Of course, as a mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water," Klum told Us Weekly. "Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."
Shortly before the incident, Klum tweeted a few pictures of the calm setting at the beach, along with a “Happy Easter” message.
The 39-year-old Victoria’s Secret model currently hosts the Lifetime series “Project Runway” and was recently named as a judge on “America’s Got Talent.”
Klum was married to singer Seal from 2005 to 2012. She began dating Kirsten shortly after the couple split.
