Godparents and multiple moms/dads

I have a character with some extra parental figures, and I'm working on forms of address for them. His biological father is "Daddy", but he has a godfather and a stepmother and I have no idea what he should call them. (He's an infant, so he gets no say in the matter.)

For those of you who have godparents, and are close to them: how do you address them? As "Godfather"? Do you have another role-specific form of address? Or do you just go with "Uncle Bob"?

For those of you who have two fathers or two mothers (a same-sex couple, or a stepparent that you're close to, or anyone else that you consider to fill that kind of role), how do you differentiate between them?

I'm trying to get a wide variety of examples to choose from, so anything you've got that seems vaguely like what I've described, please don't hesitate to throw it in.

Thanks!
