Heidi Klum is one busy mama!

In addition to raising for kids, being a world-renowned supermodel and hosting "Project Runway," the model mom is poised to take a judging chair on the upcoming season of "America's Got Talent." The reality TV host has signed on to take the role of the entertainment competition's fourth judge.

The former Victoria's Secret angel will join returning judges Howie Mandel and Howard Stern, as well as newly added Spice Girl Mel B when the show returns on May 28.

Of her new role the star says, "America's got some serious talent. I'm really excited to join the panel of AGT to see it all - from the ridiculous to the fantastic! I love the surprise element of the show and not knowing what we'll see next and who will wow us."

With the news of her last minute deal to join the judging panel, the supermodel joins a whole new collection of judges who will be sitting down to offer up their opinions when some of our favorite reality shows make their return this season. Here are some of the newest reality judges news and rumors:

Mel B: The Spice Girl has been tapped to add some bite to the judges table when she steps into the spot left vacant by Sharon Osbourne. While this is the first time she has offered up her insight stateside, the star has a long list of reality television credits overseas including judging the Australian version of "The X Factor" and competing on the American version of "Dancing with the Stars."

Shakira and Usher: Even singing superstars need a break! For the fourth season of the NBC singing competition "The Voice," coaches Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera decided to take a break to focus on their own singing careers. Rather than find permanent replacements, the show turned to Shakira and Usher to take their spots in the red chairs on a temporary basis. Of the new additions returning coach Blake Shelton says, "It will be different. I'm not saying it won't be great, it'll probably be great, I don't know yet -- we'll all find out."

Carrie Underwood: Never say never. Just last year, the country superstar said she didn't think she could judge a reality competition. Fast forward a year and she's reportedly considering a spot on "X Factor." She revealed the news to Glamour magazine saying, "I'd never say never. I think I could do things in a very constructive way. But those initial auditions, where you have to say no or tell someone to stop? I don't know if I could do that."
