Liz Hurley is one fearsome mom!
The British actress has revealed how she saved her son's life by chopping off a snake's head as it slithered towards him.
The Royals star jumped over a table and decapitated the serpent with an axe before it could sink its fangs into a helpless Damian who was lying in his cot!
Liz, 52, likened her swashbuckling heroics to something from The Three Musketeers.
She said: "Once, when we were in Spain, a snake slithered towards his Moses basket and I leapt over a table like d'Artagnan and cut its head off with an axe. Note to others: never get between a lioness and her cubs."
Liz previously dated actor Hugh Grant, 56 – Damian's godfather – and was wed to Indian textile heir Arun Nayar, 52.
Her son, who is now 15, lived to tell the tale and he is clearly grateful to his famous mother.
Damian, whose father is Elizabeth's former partner billionaire Steve Bing, is clearly devoted to his famous mother.
The teenager paid tribute to her on Mother's Day by sharing an adorable picture of the pair when he was just a toddler.
