Alonso was regarded as a quiet, and friendly person by his former teammates at Liverpool.[85] He is married to Nagore Aranburu and the couple had their first child on 11 March 2008; a boy named Jontxu Alonso Aranburu. Alonso stayed in Merseyside to be at her side while she gave birth, later saying: "It was a little frustrating to miss the match against Inter but I have to be with my family at times like these."[86] However, this caused much friction with manager Rafa Benítez as this meant he could not pick him for the important Champions League tie against Inter Milan, and the two were at odds over Alonso's decision.[87][88][89] On 30 March 2010 they had their second child; a girl named Ane Alonso.[90]

Alonso and Everton player Mikel Arteta were neighbours on the same street while growing up in San Sebastián and also lived near each other in Liverpool.[91] Alonso convinced Arteta to transfer to Everton after he told him how happy he was living in Liverpool.[92] Alonso also helped persuade former Real Sociedad team mate Juan Ugarte to make a move to Wales by joining Wrexham in 2004.[93]

His brother, Mikel Alonso, spent a season on loan at Bolton Wanderers in the 2007–08 season with an option for a permanent deal.[94][95] However, the team opted not to extend the loan deal and he returned to Spain to train with Xabi Alonso's former club, Real Sociedad.[96] Alonso also has another brother involved in football, Jon, who works as a referee
