Was Heidi Klum a lifeguard in her former life?

The new America's Got Talent judge's motherly instincts kicked in during a current family vacation in Hawaii, when her 7-year-old son Henry was swept away by a riptide. Luckily, his Supermom was close by to help him out of the scary situation.

"We got pulled into the ocean by a big wave," Heidi told 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."

Heidi is currently finishing up her Hawaiian vacation with boyfriend Martin Kristen, Henry, and her other three kids Leni, Johan and Lou. The clan has been there for over a week and celebrated Easter on the beach in the tropical spot over the weekend.

Luckily, Heidi is able to score some family time right now, but she'll be pretty busy in the upcoming months with her new role as a judge on America's Got Talent alongside Howard Stern, Howie Mandel and fellow newcomer Mel B. Can't wait to see her on the show!
