London: Supermodel Gisele Bundchen surprised a fan, Karina Xavier, who is battling cancer, by showing up at her house.

The 33-year-old Brazilian supermodel, who has a son, Ben, four, and 12-month-old daughter, Vivian, with her husband, Tom Brady, made Karina`s day when she visited her home in Malden near Boston, Massachusetts to swap beauty tips, reported Contactmusic.

The 15-year-old budding make-up artist, who is also originally from Brazil, shared photographs of the model on Instagram and wrote to Bundchen, "From the moment you surprised me, until the moment you left, I was so shocked for you being here with me!

"Thank you so much for taking time off of your day to come visit me and spend some time with me! Also thank you for your kind words and your very meaningful gifts! You are a great person and you will continue inspiring me. I love you."

Bundchen was equally moved by the encounter, as she also shared a photograph of them on Instagram, with the caption:

"It was a pleasure to see you again. You are warrior, an inspiration of positivity and courage. I will be praying for you. Sending you love and light always."

The duo previously met at an event hosted by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute two years ago.
