All this and a killer Halloween party, too.



Heidi Klum isn't just another pretty face/supermodel/Project Runway host/America's Got Talent judge: She just saved her 7-year-old son Henry from a potentially deadly riptide while on vacation in Hawaii on Sunday. We hope that kid remembers Mother's Day is next month.

"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 told Us Weekly. The child and two nannies were pulled out to sea, so the 39-year-old and her boyfriend Martin Kristen dived to the rescue. "Henry is a strong swimmer and was able to swim back to land. We were able to get everyone out safely."

Klum and her whole family, including kids Leni, 8; Johan, 6; and Lou, 3; all went to Oahu for the break. Her ex Seal must love hearing this kind of stuff.
