Shaylybri isn't the only apple that fell close to the tree, though.

TODAY asked readers to share their own photo comparisons of themselves and a relative, and as it turns out, there are plenty of other tree-hugging apples hanging around.

Megan Wyatt Deweese proves the resemblances often start young. "My daughter on the left at 3.5 years old. Me on the right at 4 years old," she wrote.

Gender divides don't matter either when it comes to look-alike relatives. Merci Johnston Bachman and her son look eerily similar when they were each 13 years old.

And some parents and children look alike always, no matter the age difference.

As Betsy Buisson put it, "Same mouth, eye shape, long face, everything!"
