Heidi Klum Saves Son from Ocean Current

Fashion icon Heidi Klum was more super-mom than super-model this weekend when her 7-year-old son and two nannies were swept offshore by a strong ocean rip current while vacationing in Hawaii.  Klum and boyfriend, Martin Kirsten, sprang into action, according to Us Weekly, and 7-year-old Henry and his caretakers are all safe:

"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 tells UsWeekly in an exclusive statement. "Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."

Before the incident, Klum tweeted a picture of colorful eggs hidden along the shoreline. "Happy Easter!" she wrote in the photo caption. Klum and her family -- including children Leni, 8, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3 -- kicked off their getaway in Honolulu on March 24.
