Bowen explained to Boston Common that she sought out television roles in recent years in order to spend more time at home with her three young sons.
“The boys are finally at an age where I find them to be so luscious and fantastic that I don’t want to be away if I don’t have to be. We all love each other,” she explained.

While her husband Phil Dunphy (Ty Burrell) wins more laughs, Claire’s self-doubt ends up producing the series’ most unexpected laugh-out-loud moments. Quoth Mrs. Dunphy: “You know how growing up we all had that voice inside our head that tells us we’re not good enough? Well, mine was outside my head driving me to school.”
