Modern Family, an American TV comedy series, revolves around three families that are interrelated through Jay Pritchett, his son Mitchell Pritchett, and his daughter Claire Dunphy.The families meet for family functions, around the neighborhood, and cross-family bonding.She was once a wild child who made a lot of mistakes over the years, and she is fearful that her children could make the same mistakes, especially her oldest daughter, Haley.
Claire is a perfectionist; according to Phil, "when everybody else sees something beautiful, all she sees is the teeny-tiny flaw." She is also terrible at giving gifts.
As her husband Phil once bought her a bracelet for their anniversary, she made him coupons for five free hugs. Claire received another sibling through Jay's second wife Gloria – Fulgencio "Joe".
She also gets annoyed with her husband, Phil, constantly.

She is seen as an experienced parent by Cameron and Mitchell, so she is called upon for her parenting advice. She is also very attached to Halloween and describes it as her "crazy lady holiday".
