Supermodel Heidi Klum is officially a hero.

The “Project Runway” star was forced to save her son, along with his two nannies, in Hawaii after a riptide pulled them out to sea, according to Us Weekly. Klum and her boyfriend Martin Kirsten saved the trio from drowning.

“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,” the “Project Runway” host told the publication. “Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely.”

Klum is now preparing to become the fourth judge on “America’s Got Talent,” where she will join Spice Girl Mel B, as well as the returning Howie Mandel and Howard Stern on the show.

“I’m really excited to join the panel of ‘AGT’ to see it all — from the ridiculous to the fantastic!” she said about the NBC series. “I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we’ll see next and who will wow us.”
