The head of the family, Jay Pritchett (Ed O'Neill), is a true man's man who has recently married again - this time to a much younger Colombian woman, Gloria (Sofia Vergara). Jay now finds himself with heading a young family again with Gloria's young son, Manny (Rico Rodriguez). Jay's own kids, Claire (Julie Bowen) and Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) are long grown up and now have families of their own.
Claire and husband Phil (Ty Burrell) are the parents of three children: Haley (Sarah Hyland), their fifteen-year-old daughter who is growing up a little too fast, Alex (Ariel Winter), their thirteen-year-old daughter who is too smart for her own good, and Luke (Nolan Gould), their rambunctious ten-year-old son. While former-wild child Claire desperately wants to keep discipline in the house and stop her kids making the same mistakes she did, Phil is more interested in being their "cool dad" and more of a friend than a parent.
Mitchell and his partner, Cameron (Eric Stonestreet), recently adopted a Vietnamese baby, Lily, into their family. Mitchell and Cameron are quite different: Mitchell is more reserved and does not like public displays of affection, while Cameron has an outgoing personality and is much more comfortable in his own skin. Together they are figuring out how to be the best fathers for Lily.
