Is that sentence correct English? "Since Sunday I am a grandmother"? I would think "have been" would work better...

You may be right. "Since Sunday I've been a grandmother" although I think it sounds better this way: "I have been a grandmother since Sunday." Here's what I was able to find out about it: http://www.ef.com/english-resources/english-grammar/present-perfect-and/
