    Are these three sentences correct?

    Hello, everyone.

    I am merely curious whether the fellowing three sentences all correct, in proper circumstances.

    The sentences are quite similar, with differences in bold.

    #1 Since Angelina Jolie gave birth to twins in July, the world has seen little of the Hollywood star.

    #2 Since Angelina Jolie gave birth to twins, the world has seen little of the Hollywood star.

    #3 Since Angelina Jolie has given birth to twins, the world has seen little of the Hollywood star.

    Many thanks

    Richard

    All are possible, though #2 is probably more likely than #3.
