Paris Hilton has dated some of the world's hunkiest jocks and actors, but the socialite tells Ellen DeGeneres that her current beau, Cy Waits, stands out from the rest, as he's a real lifesaver, literally.

The socialite told DeGeneres of Waits, who she's been dating almost a year: "He's so loyal and protective of me and he saved my life. He's my hero.”

"He saved your life in what way?" Ellen asked.

"I got burglarized a few months ago by this guy who came in with two huge knives," Hilton said. "And Cy... stopped him.

Hilton's appearance will air on Monday's edition of Ellen.
