Binay was born on December 12, 1975, as the second of five children and the second of four daughters of Jejomar Binay and Elenita Sombillo. She is the younger sister of Nancy Binay, a current Senator, and the older sister of Junjun Binay, the former mayor of Makati.
In 2007, she was elected representative of Makati's 2nd District, succeeding Butz Aquino and passed several bills under her watch.
In the wake of her brother Junjun's ouster as Makati mayor by the Ombudsman of the Philippines in 2015, Binay announced her candidacy as Mayor of Makati, inviting Cong. Monique Lagdameo as vice mayor of the city competing with Kid Peña and Karla Mercado.
On May 9, 2016, Binay and Lagdameo won the mayoral and vice-mayoral election, respectively. They took their oath of office on June 27, 2016. Abby's first day as Mayor of Makati began three days later on June 30, and by that time her father's term as vice president already expired.
She has been married to Luis N. Campos Jr. since 2008. They have one child, Martina Campos.
