Claire vs. Gloria: Who's the Best Modern Mom?

It doesn’t have to be Mother’s Day for us to celebrate two of our favorite Modern Moms. Claire Dunphy (Julie Bowen) and Gloria Delgado-Pritchett (Sofia Vergara) probably wouldn’t have clicked if they weren’t brought together by some family fate. They are almost complete opposites in personalities and philosophies (not to be confused with Phil’s-osophy). The one thing they do have in common is that they are two of the best moms around. Take a look at some of their top mom moments and then tell us who you think is the top Modern Family matriarch. We can’t decide. We love ‘em both!

The Gloria of Pregnancy: When Gloria first discovered that little Fulgencio Joe was on the way, she wasn’t sure how Jay would react. Claire’s reaction was pretty unexpected as well. Take a look back at compilation of mom-friendly moments as everyone’s favorite Modern Family got just a little bit bigger.

Party Moms: Gloria trusts her son, Manny, completely. Claire feels the exact opposite about her boy, Luke. She’s pretty sure the two teens are throwing a party behind everyone’s backs. However, Claire has no proof of any of this until she receives a sign from above.

Scary Moms: Forget Mother’s Day. Claire Dunphy’s favorite holiday is Halloween. She’s willing to give up Christmas, Thanksgiving and anything else as long as she can still get her fright every October’s end. Gloria, on the other hand, has had some issues with Halloween over the years. Take a look at some tricks and treats from both ladies.
