Claire Dunphy > Wiki


Role played by Julie Bowen.

Claire Dunphy (née Pritchett), is the daughter of Jay, Mitchell's older sister, and the overprotective mother of the Dunphy family and its three very different kids. She is often exhausted from stress created by her family but is still a loving mother. When it comes to her kids she has difficulty controlling Haley's hormones, Alex's manipulative nature, and Luke's lack of common sense. She is seen as an experienced parent by Cameron and Mitchell so she is gone to for her parenting advice. She enjoys jogging and reading. Claire is also the most active family member when organizing family get-togethers. When an old co-worker visits, it is revealed that she was a successful businesswoman but left her job and married Phil a few months after she became pregnant with Haley. She also shows resentment towards the abandonment of her working career due to seeing the success of one of her former peers, but realizes her family is what is important.

Over protecting mom compensating for her wild youth days now by watching over Haley. A honey in her own right next to Gloria.

"Julie Bowen is made of 100% Awesome Sauce", that is what E! Online said about Julie Bowen, and they are right. Every new pilot on TV is now looking for the hot mom type of Claire Dunphy. She might not be the best with gadgets, and wearing nothing but a coat might not be the best idea for her; but she is a loving mom and a supporting wife (and you do need a lot of patience with Phil as a husband) and we love her for that.      Here are some unforgettable Clair quotes:   …
