Heidi Klum Saves Son Henry From Drowning: "We Were Able to Get Everyone Out Safely"
Heidi Klum is counting her blessings. While vacationing in Oahu, Hawaii, March 31, the German supermodel's 7-year-old son, Henry, was swept away in a large riptide along with two nannies. Klum, 39, and her bodyguard boyfriend Martin Kirsten sprang to action and 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 tells Us Weekly 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.
Earlier this month, Klum was named the fourth judge on America's Got Talent. She joins fellow newcomer Mel B, plus veterans Howie Mandel and Howard Stern. "I'm really excited to join the panel of AGT to see it all -- from the ridiculous to the fantastic!" the blonde beauty said in a statement. "I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we'll see next and who will wow us."
