Who says Heidi Klum can't do it all?

The supermodel became a hero when she saved her seven-year-old son Henry from drowning during her recent Hawaiian vacation.

While playing in the waters off the coast of Ouha, the seven-year-old was swept away in a riptide along with two nannies -- alerting the Project Runway host and her bodyguard boyfriend, Martin Kirsten, to spring into action.

"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," Klum, 39, told Us Weekly. "Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."

Klum had been vacationing with her family -- including her children Leni, 8, Johan, 6, and Lou, 3 -- in Hawaii during the Easter break.

However, she isn't the only starlet to have risked their life to save those in need.

Previous celebrity heroes include Oscar winners Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Winslet, with the latter carrying billionaire Richard Branson's 90-year-old mother out of a burning house on Necker Island in 2011.

"Many thanks to Kate Winslet for helping to carry my 90 year old mum out of the main house to safety," Branson blogged about the incident.
