Not much is known about his upbringing, but it was likely pretty normal. He married Laura Ponte y Martinez in September 2004. Together, they have two children, twins:

  1. Luis Felipe Gómez-Acebo y Ponte (2005) 
  2. Laura Gómez-Acebo y Ponte (2005) 

Luis and Laura separated in 2009, and officially divorced in 2011. He married for a second time to Andrea Pascual Vicenes on 27 February 2016.

It is likely that Luis leads a fairly normal life as he is not considered part of succession. If he was he wouldn't be any higher than 22nd place.
