The TV host saved her 7-year-old son after he was swept away by a large wave off a beach in Oahu, Hawaii on March 31. Forget being a supermodel — she’s a supermom!
The gorgeous Heidi Klum, 39, is currently vacationing in Oahu, Hawaii with her boyfriend, Martin Kristen, and her children - Leni, 8, Henry, 7, Johan, 6, and Lou, 2. The fun took a turn for the terrible, though, when Henry and his nanny got pulled into the ocean by a riptide, forcing Heidi to go into rescue mode and save them all with the help of her boyfriend!
Heidi Saves Her Son From Drowning
“We got pulled into the ocean by a big wave,” the mother of four tells Us Weekly. “Of course, as a mother, I was very scared for my child and everyone else in the water. Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely.”
This hot mama proved she is more than a pretty face by showing off her swimming skills and rescuing her son and his nanny! Before the incident occurred, the family was enjoying a nice Easter, hanging out on the beach. Heidi even tweeted “Happy Easter!” as the caption to a picture of a whole bunch of colorful Easter eggs that were placed all around the beach!
Heidi Klum Needs A Break
Now with the disaster averted, everyone is probably happy to get back to their vacation, although they’ll probably need a whole new vacation after all of that excitement! Heidi and her family have been in Hawaii since Mar. 24, but it is well-deserved after all of the work she’s been doing. Between video shoots, hosting, and news that she is the newest judge for America’s Got Talent, Heidi needs all the vacation and family time she can get!
We’re glad everyone was able to get out okay and we wish the best for the rest of their vacation!
