The little lifesaver plucked the young girl, one of his friends, from a stream, after she fell in!

Adventurer Bear Grylls‘ son Jesse, 7, has been hailed a hero after saving a friend from drowning! What a brave boy!“They were in a little base in a stream and she fell in.” The star of Man Vs Wild explains. “I wasn’t there. He was proud as punch to have dragged her out.”

Bear insists he’s proud of his son’s brave act — but admits he worries Jesse and his siblings Marmaduke, five and Huckleberry, two, are too influenced by his daredevil stunts on TV.

He tells the Daily Mail, “Their headmaster took me aside and said, ‘It’s great that they might know how to take the door off a helicopter and deal with a snake bite, but it would be really great if they focused a little more on the mathematics.’ I’m kind of feeling that at the moment.”

“For a long time, I never wanted them to be too aware of what I do. I relaxed that when all their friends were talking about me in the playground, and they were the only ones not to have seen (my show). But getting the balance right is hard.”

And Bear has already decided he DOESN’T want his kids to follow in his footsteps!

“Do I want them to grow up to be me? No, actually. I’m unemployable in the real world. I don’t want that for them.”

What should Bear do, HollyMoms? Encourage them to be like him and embrace their inner daredevil — or force them to stick to their schoolbooks?
