Alejandro Villanueva is a former American football offensive tackle who played seven seasons in the National Football League (NFL).

Villanueva has spoken publicly about the importance of his Catholic faith in his life and work. In November 2013, he married Madelyn Muldoon in a small ceremony in her parents' backyard. He met her through her brother, Joe Muldoon, with whom he played football at Army, and the two began dating in the spring of 2012.
