And the plot thickens.

In March, news broke that Princess Diaries director Garry Marshall had convinced his formerly rogue Thermopolis Anne Hathaway to shoot a third installment of the franchise in Manhattan, after the actress gave birth to her first child:

"I was with Anne Hathaway a couple weeks ago," Marshall told People at the time. "It looks like we want to do Princess Diaries 3 in Manhattan. Hathaway is very pregnant, so we have to wait until she has the baby and then I think we’re going to do it."

Now, the birth of said baby has come and gone — welcome to the world, Jonathan Rosebanks — and Marshall is spilling the beans on the film's progression.

During a junket for his latest film, Mother's Day, Marshall told E! News he was in official talks with Disney:

"Well, you know, Disney is quite powerful," he said, "and they say they would like to announce, not me. But we are talking. Anne Hathaway has a baby now...and a wonderful husband, Adam [Schulman], and people change.

The 81-year-old went on to describe that pesky period in which actors want more for themselves:

"There's a passage. It goes, 'Hello! Oh! I'm discovered in this movie!' If it's a comedy they say, 'Alright, enough of that, I want to be an O.D. on drugs; I want to be naked,' and they go through that period. Then they have a child and come back to me and say, 'I'd like to do something my child could see,' and I'm very good and making things your child could see and the whole family."

In other words, be on the lookout for Disney's official announcement: The Princess Diaries 3 is happening.
