Michelle's kids were too young when she took the undeclared hiatus and relocated to a peaceful suburb in Northern California's Woodside. The couple's oldest, Claudia, is now 29 years old and is nowhere to be seen on the social media domain. Despite having a cultural icon for her mother, Claudia likes to keep it to herself. As per Pfeiffer, her daughter is a "force to be reckoned with."
"She is a force to be reckoned with and an amazing human being," Michelle says about her daughter, adding, "I wanted her to be an independent, outspoken young woman, and I sure got that! She is also very creative and inquisitive." Pfeiffer and David's youngest, John, named after David's father, is 27 and completely out of the spotlight like his sister.

They have been close their whole lives, and they're close in age. But don't get me wrong, they have their moments of sibling conflict."
