Lily Tucker-Pritchett (note the hyphen) may have been born in Vietnam, but her home is with her two loving adoptive dads, Mitchell and Cameron. These two big monkeys fell in love with this little panda the moment they met her, as did the rest of the family.
Lily's first word was "mommy," which is, of course, every gay dad's worst nightmare. Nowadays, Lily is talking up a storm. She was saying things like "I hate the baby" in response to the plans her dads have to adopt a little boy. She finks on Cameron whenever he pulls her out of school to go shopping. Lily exclaims, "We bought matchy hats." She also swears up a storm as a flower girl at a wedding. Kids say the darndest things, don't they?
Aubrey Anderson–Emmons made history at the age of four by becoming the youngest ever nominee and recipient of a Screen Actors Guild Award for her performance as Lily Tucker-Pritchett on the hit show "Modern Family." Last season, Aubrey added a third SAG Award to her shelf. Now, at the tender age of 7, she is entering her fourth year as a series regular, where she has increased cultural diversity awareness as an Asian American playing a trans-racial adoptee of gay parents.
Even with her busy work, school and play schedule, Aubrey has donated her time to support such charitable organizations as St. Jude's Hospital, California Covenant House Youth Shelter, Let Them Play Sports Organization, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Olive Crest, Help A Mother Out and Dave Thomas Foundation For Adoption.
Born in June of 2007 in Santa Monica, California, Aubrey loves all animals and enjoys a wide variety of activities, including swimming, biking, playing with her two dogs, riding her pony, skateboarding, attending movies and of course going to Disneyland and Disney World. Recently, after attending a few Broadway musicals, she fell in love and set her sights on the Great White Way. She is currently training in vocal and dance instruction and starred as 'JoJo' in a regional summer production of "Seussical, Jr." Aubrey's self-proclaimed goal is to one day star on the Broadway stage.
