Lily Tucker-Pritchett (formerly Tucker Pritchett) is Mitchell Pritchett and Cameron Tucker's adopted Vietnamese daughter. She is the older adoptive sister of Rexford Jason Tucker-Pritchett and the co-owner of Larry.

Lily was born in Vietnam on October 1, 2007 and was adopted as a baby by Mitch and Cam in September 2009. Mitchell originally wanted to wait to tell the extended family that they had adopted Lily. However, Cameron knew Mitchell will shy away from introducing her forever, so he plans a surprise dinner where he introduces the baby in a Lion King manner. The whole family welcome her with open arms. Lily was cared for by a group of Vietnamese women while she was in the orphanage, which was revealed in, "Fears". It is unknown if she was cared for before this, but her parents either died or abandoned her. In "Open House of Horrors", Lily believed her birth Mom was a fairy due to Mitchell telling her so, when he was very sleepy believing she would let it go but didn't. So, Cam and Mitch have to reveal to 3 year old Lily, that they don't know who or where her Mother is.

As a baby, Lily was a constant centre of attention, being the youngest of the clan. Cam becomes a stay-at-home Dad with Lily, while Mitchell goes to work.

She is, at times, doing activities with both of her fathers, but remains with Cam at home while Mitchell works. Cameron often dresses her up as celebrities, such as Diana Ross, Madonna, and Ray Charles for the purpose of taking photographs. Cameron and Mitchell attempt to practice the Ferber method on Lily but Cameron can't resist catering to her during the night, he once sat her down to watch Scarface, claiming Lily liked the movie. Another noticeable thing about Lily is that in most episodes she appears in she is seen with "Doggy", her stuffed dog, which appears to be a Labrador. She is a quiet and peaceful baby when portrayed by infants Ella and Jaden Hiller, and does not speak for the first two seasons.

In later seasons, Lily becomes a bubbly toddler with a snarkiness she seems to get from her parents as well as her aunt Claire, who often babysits her, this was revealed in "Fulgencio". Even at a young age, Lily has shown kindness and selflessness, such as when she ran to get Joe as his pirate castle collapses ("Integrity") and when she gives her Puppy Pound toy to a homeless boy for Christmas ("The Old Man & the Tree"). Although, in "Crying Out Loud", her parents express how they have noticed Lily has not developed a sense of empathy so far, but, this may be due to the fact that she tends to display snarkiness more than empathy.

Lily is a hilarious, entertaining, and charming character with a sassy personality. In "Little Bo Bleep", Lily is heard saying the F-word multiple times in front of a congregation solely for the purpose of making her daddy laugh hysterically. Lily quickly picks up on words or phrases said by other people, including from her aunt, Claire Dunphy. In the episode "Fulgencio", Lily repeats snarky and sarcastic lines originally said by Claire, who had been spending time with her.

In Season 3 Lily is no longer played by babies Ella & Jaden Hiller, but instead by bubbly preschooler Aubrey Anderson-Emmons. She now begins to talk and becomes a full-fledged character. She is vocal about not wanting a new baby brother, but instead, a kitten named Larry which actually happens for her. She is shown to have some other faults typical of toddlers, such as difficulty with sharing.

She has had a petty rivalry with Luke and Manny because of this, until Joe is born in "Party Crasher".

Physical Appearance (as Aubrey Anderson-Emmons)

Lily has olive skin, black-brown long waist-length curly hair, and black eyes. She is bi-ethnic.

Mishaps with Lily

In "Stand By Your Man", Claire watches Lily, she admits she's afraid of Lily, until Lily admits she thinks Claire doesn't like her but she finds Claire to be the only cool person in the family. Claire surprised by this, tries to teach her how to be cool in the way Lily thinks she is, but it backfires and both admit they are cool the way they are. In "A Year of Birthdays", as the birth of Haley and Dylan's twins approaches we take a look back at how each family member celebrated their birthdays this past year. On Lily's birthday, she says that she didn't like it, because Manny continuously mourned over a breakup. Later in the year, Haley gives birth to twins in the hospital. When the twins are taken off to another part of the hospital, Mitch and Cam decide to present them to the family in the same way Cam introduced Lily in the Pilot episode using The Lion King theme song. Lily also joins in on this, introducing their presentation.

Season 11
In "New Kids On The Block", Cam brings some at-risk students over to the house, much to Lily and Mitch's dismay. A possession of Cam's gets stolen and he believes it's one of the students. Mitch goes into the kitchen to complain about the situation with Cam but Lily has already figured out that Mitch took it. Much later, Mitch comes clean, but Cam reveals he already knew and the students are actors who were hired to get the truth out of Mitchell. In "Perfect Pairs", After a succession of weird prospective tenants for their upstairs apartment, Mitch and Cam are delighted to rent out to a gay couple who are essentially younger versions of themselves and have adopted a black daughter who is the same age as Lily. Another plus to the couple is that they pay six months rent upfront. However Mitch and Cam soon start to worry that the couple are outshining them in regards to their fitness and their cultured opinions and their attempts to keep up exhaust them. It is Lily who saves the day when she plays bridge with their daughter and cheats, causing the daughter to have a nervous breakdown since she's used to winning everything and can't handle losing to someone who had just learned the rules. The couple decide to move out to spare their daughter any more distress, even letting Mitch and Cam keep all the upfront rent.

In "Pool Party", Mitch and Cam learn that Lily is too body sensitive to go to go to a party they've been invited to. They talk to her about self-acceptance and accompany her to the party, only to discover that the pool party is actually one for gay men (they'd assumed the 'younger' people attending would be teenagers, whereas it's actually a bunch of twenty somethings). Although Lily now has no problem been seen in her swimming costume, Mitch and Cam are now anxious about being seen in only their shorts and hide out in the upstairs gym with Ronaldo, Longines and several other men who feel the same. Lily finds them and chews them out for not following their own advice. Realizing they were hypocrites, Mitch and Cam lead the guys outside in their shorts and all jump into the pool. In "The Last Halloween", Mitch and Cam feel that it's the good time for judging a festival, but they realize that Lily was at a party without an adult. When they fail to find her at the house, they come home and learn that she actually came home before them because of a boy who used her as a way to seduce one of her friends. They talk it out with her and comfort her. In "The Last Christmas", It is Christmas time, and Mitchell and Cameron are hosting everyone for Christmas dinner. The other family members try to avoid each other for different reasons. Lily asks not to be sat near to Luke because she can't handle his chewing noises. Lily expresses her violence side when Manny and Luke are at odds, Luke suggests Manny punches him to make him feel good, he does, but it doesn't, Lily suggests kicking Luke, or... jabbing him in the eye. Cam reveals big news: he's one of two finalist for the head coaching position at the university of Missouri and could start within a few months, Mitch comforts him by saying he and Lily would be willing to move to Missouri for it. Cam's mood then fluctuates in the space of 4 hours on December 31st not knowing if he's got the job. Lily and Mitchell count down to the new year while Cam moans about the job still.

In "Legacy", Cameron, Lily, Manny and Gloria go to the mall. WHile at the mall, Manny sees Brenda Fieldman again, he last saw her in the Pilot episode when he was 11. 10 yeas later, he tries again. Cam runs into one of his rivals who beat him to a prestigious teaching award and enjoys rubbing his face in that fact, until Gloria embarrasses her while trying on dresses. To return the favor, Cameron manages to sabotage a house sale that Gloria's rival realtor stole from under her nose by dressing himself, Manny and Lily up as yokels pretending to live next door. In "Spuds", Lily goes on her first date with Mitch and Cam chaperoning from a distance. Lily's date goes very well and she heads outside to have ice cream. Mitch sees Cam being emotional and consoles him about the job only to learn he didn't know he hadn't got it. Cam explains that the phone call was from their old adoption agency; their profile was accidentally reactivated and someone has chosen them to adopt their baby. They have twenty-four hours to respond, and although this is unexpected the two look at how well they've raised Lily and aren't entirely against the idea of having another child. In "Baby Steps", Mitch and Cam are trying to decide if they should accept the opportunity to adopt another baby. Lily encourages them, but reminds them they'll both be seniors by the time the kid enters high school. Mitch and Cam become offended until they realize, she's right. Cam and Mitch contemplate their ages when their baby grows up, which prompts them to talk to Gloria. They decide to adopt and late at night, Cam begins to annoy Mitch and Lily with his singing.

In "I'm Going To Miss This", Mitch and Cam have bought a new house, and although it is larger and has many new amenities, Mitch is finding it hard to say goodbye to the old house. Mitch says goodbye to the old house by playing the musical divas on his phone and dancing along as he used to do when he lived alone, only to be interrupted by Cam and Lily with big news; the baby they're adopting has been born two weeks early. The two immediately start to panic, as everything they need for the new baby is either packed away or not bought yet. As Gloria tries to find the baby car seat, Mitch and Cam enter the hospital full of nerves and wondering if they're doing the right thing. Lily reminds them they always get nervous but manage to pull themselves together when it's important, just as they arrive at the window where they get their first glimpse of the baby, a boy. Mitch, Cam and Lily get emotional at the sight of their new son and brother and hug. In "Finale Part 1/Finale Part 2", Cam is offered the head coaching position again, Lily and Mitch agree that he should take the job, Lily wants to reinvent herself in Missouri. Sal later visits and reveals she lives down the street and intends to take the two for many wild nights out while having Lily babysit her kid and pets, making Mitch feel far more positive about moving. The whole family finally go to the Dunphy household to say goodbye as Mitch, Cam, Lily and Rexford (their new son) are now really leaving. The family all huddle close for one last family picture, but once it is taken no-one wants to let go. As they all leave, each sets of parents are seeing doing what they were doing in the Pilot episode, with Mitch and Cam eating cream puffs on the plane with both of their kids (as they were with baby Lily).

Mitchell

Mitchell is Lily's adoptive Dad. He cares for Lily but can at times be very caught up in his work. This improves over the course of the show and he ends up growing closer to Lily. Mitchell is less emotional than Cameron and believes that Lily's lack of empathy may have something to do with his lack of showing emotions.

Alex Dunphy

Alex is Lily’s adoptive cousin, stemming from Alex being Mitchell's niece as Alex's mother is Claire, Mitchell's sister.

Season 1: The two do not interact, although in "Pilot", Alex seems happy when she meets baby Lily for the first time.

Season 2: Alex and Lily do not interact at all in this season.

Season 3: In the first episode of the season ("Dude Ranch"), Alex is seen taking care of Lily. Alex is pushing Lily on a swing and gets annoyed when Lily keeps kicking her. Alex has her first kiss in front of Lily, who laughs and says, “You kissed a boy!”, much to Alex's embarrassment who reiterates "The boy kissed me".

In "Express Christmas", Alex goes tree shopping with Mitchell and Lily.

Season 4: In "Arrested", Alex takes care of Lily when they go to the hospital after Luke suffers an allergic reaction from Cam's soy bacon. She seems to be protective of Lily as she turns her around and covers her eyes when Luke walks in with the front of his hospital gown undone. She also puts her arm out to protect Lily when Cam almost crashes the car near the end of the episode.

Alex and Haley babysit Lily in "New Year's Eve" but do their job poorly as they lock her outside without even knowing, and don’t notice when she puts on Claire's clothes and makeup. At one point, Lily asks them if anyone's watching her.

Season 5: Alex is seen with her arm around Lily in "Farm Strong".

In "The Late Show", Alex babysits Lily and tries to read her Little Women, but Lily reacts by saying how she hates it and asks to play dolls with her instead. When Mitch and Cam come out wearing the same outfit and ask the girls for their opinion, Alex says that boy clothes aren’t really her thing, to which Lily replies, “Really?” while looking at her up and down.

Haley and Alex take care of Lily in "Australia", and go souvenir shopping with her.<tabber>

Luke Dunphy

Luke is Lily's adoptive cousin.

Luke and Lily have evidently been friends with Lily for more time than Joe and Lily have been friends. Luke along with Manny has been known to try and trick Lily which usually fails as Lily is able to make their plan fall apart before it starts as Luke is usually the one who lets Manny down. In "White Christmas", Manny and Luke try to make Lily believe that a boy used to live in the house they spend Christmas in and was locked in there and died in there. Manny and Luke give Lily a note, but as Luke wrote the note, Lily says that the scariest thing about the note is that it was written with bad English.

Luke first speaks to Lily in When Good Kids Go Bad when she pushes him away from her father while shouting “My daddy!” to which he replies “This isn’t over”. He grows jealous of Lily for stealing his limelight as the “cute one” of the family (Virgin Territory) and sets a trap with cookies that would lead to her getting into trouble. In the episode Punkin Chunkin Luke tells his dad that “anything is better than watching Lily chew” and is relieved that he does not have to sit next to her when the family come over. Near the end of the episode he says that he wants to test out how the catapult works on a human and calls for Lily. In Aunt Mommy Luke describes Lily as “A mess” and “A disaster of a human being”.

In Arrested Luke is clearly annoyed that Lily has to stay with him in the hospital. He torments her in Party Crasher by calling her “The most beautiful sight of all” mockingly and she tells him to go away. At the end of the episode both are seen to be jealous of their new baby half uncle after the family swoon over him. Luke puts his arm around Lily and says “We’ll talk”. In A Slight at the Opera Luke is seen hitting golf balls at Lily and telling her to keep her mouth open. In The Wow Factor Luke tells Mitchell that Lily has no emotion in her eyes. In Flip Flop the family all have their attention on Luke so Lily butts in and says “I know my ABCs!”. Luke is clearly annoyed and says “I guess things weren’t about you for a second”.

In Haley's 21st Birthday Lily is being babysat by her cousins and goes around asking her them where babies come from. Luke, who is now a teenager begins telling her using her stuffed toys to demonstrate but is interrupted by Manny.

In Summer Lovin', we see the pair hi-fiving each other. In White Christmas the family stay in a cabin and Luke and Manny torment Lily by making up a story about the forgotten boy who has been locked away in the secret room. She doesn’t believe them and calls them idiots. Luke writes a note pretending to be the forgotten boy and gives it to her and she says that the scariest thing about it is that he spells like a 2 year old. In The Party Luke and Manny babysit Lily and decide to throw a party. They bribe Lily with soda and she hides the guests in Luke's room.

Love Interests

Patrik: Pre-school crush.

Rob: Canadian man who temporarily lived in the apartment upstairs, with his wife Carol and son, Monte. Originally, Cam thought she had a crush on Monte, who is around the same age as her, and gives her flirting advice. But when Lily flirts with Rob instead of Monte, Cam secretly tells her to stop, but she won’t. Monte later feels homesick, and so he, Rob and Carol return to Canada.

Randy: Randy is in Lily’s class in High school, he is a year older than her but as Lily skipped a grade she is in his grade. They go on a date, which Lily’s dads help her prepare for.

Trivia

  • Though Lily is Vietnamese, Aubrey Anderson-Emmons is actually of Korean heritage.
  • Lily may have been named after Cam's family pig, as revealed in the episode "Leap Day", though Cam does not confirm this. However, in a later episode, it was confirmed by Mitch, who says "Still no shame I see for tricking me into naming our daughter after bacon".
  • She sometimes leverages on being adopted as a way to get what she wants.
  • She likes metal music, something that thoroughly disturbs her parents.
