Default Chris Farely reincarnated

This has been making the rounds on Facebook, and while I didn't see any evidence of funny-business, I was surprised to hear a number of my friends state their belief that it is shopped.

I almost hate to post it, as I don't want to appear to be making fun of a small child, but at least in terms of the facial expression there is a remarkable similarity, and I'm curious if any of the more intelligent Snopesters can detect evidence of photoshopping. My guess is that it's just a little kid who happened to be photographed while making a Farely-esque grin, but you never know.

My guess is it's real because the resemblance isn't that strong, IMO. I'm not sure that "Chris Farley" would have popped into my head if I hadn't seen the thread title.

All I see is a cute blonde girl with bangs who is sitting with her Mom and likes having her picture taken.

I looked up Chris Farley and out of the hundred or so photos of him that Google Images gave me, I found one that might be similar. And it is the hair that does it.

When seeing this photo and being told "this kid looks like Chris Farley", the first thing to snap ino my brain is the "That is correct" scene from Billy Madison.

GIF of said scene.
