Watch: Heidi Gets A Life-Saving B-Day Gift From Ellen

Heidi Klum has already proven that she’s a supermom — and a superhero — after her harrowing feat last week when she saved her son and nannies from drowning during a family vacation in Hawaii.

And Ellen DeGeneres just wanted to make sure she looks super-stylish should her quick-thinking skills ever come in handy again, by giving the German stunner a special gift for her upcoming 40th birthday.

“My friend Nancy is doing a hat party for me,” the model mom revealed on Ellen. “All my girlfriends and everyone have to wear a crazy hat.”

Cue the comedienne, who fashioned one out of a life preserver.

“You can actually save people!” DeGeneres boasted of her stylishly savvy design.

And in true model behavior, Klum had just the outfit to pair it with: “It goes with a red bathing suit I just bought,” she said.

In fact, she’s looking forward to reaching the big 4-0 milestone.

“I’m happy when I get one year older,” Klum said. “It means we’re still here, having a good time.”
