Stephanie Marie Phillips (née Turner) is a newly married step-mother. Fun used to mean spending time with her girlfriends drinking wine and talking about shoes. Now only her 14-year-old stepdaughter, Gabby, wants to hear about the shoes – mainly because she wants to borrow them. Stephanie is a career-driven food blogger and party girl, who loves being married to her new husband, Charlie, and step-mom to his three kids. But being a step-mom means finding a balance between being a mother, a friend, and a wife, all while maintaining a sense of self. She has no biological children, only stepchildren, just 1 stepdaughter, an older stepson, and younger stepson. Sometimes Steph's life can get very difficult, but she tries her hardest to be positive.

She is portrayed by Tia Mowry.


  • When she wants the kids to do something and they don't want to, she persuades her husband to tell them to do it, taunting him with sex.
  • She owns a school girl outfit.
  • She also owns a cheerleader outfit. In the episode where Gabby brings this up, Charlie changes the subject awkwardly, suggesting it may be used as a sex prop.
  • She loves peonies.
  • Her name is the female version of Stephen.
  • She likes to get involved in her step-children's school activities.
  • She never listens to her mother.
  • Sometimes she can be a very bad advisor. Most of the time her advice is opposite to Charlie's.
  • She was similar to Gabby when she was a teenager.
  • She is usually strict with her step-kids, mostly punish them often. Especially Gabby who is mostly like her when she was a teenager. Talk about being a hypocrite.
