Da Gama and his wife, Catarina de Ataíde, had six sons and one daughter:
Dom Francisco da Gama, 2nd Count of Vidigueira;
Dom Estevão da Gama, 11th Governor of India (1540–1542);
Dom Paulo da Gama;
Dom Pedro da Silva da Gama;
Dom Álvaro de Ataíde da Gama, Captain of Malacca;
Dona Isabel de Ataíde da Gama
Dom Cristovão da Gama, a martyr in Ethiopia.
His male line issue became extinct in 1747, though the title went through female line.
