Catholic Baptisms

I've googled and wikipedia'ed around and haven't come up with a definitive answer.

If a Roman Catholic - not a very devout one, he doesn't regularly go to church - wants to baptize his child, do both of the godparents he chooses have to be Roman Catholic? Are there more lax Roman Catholic churches that don't mind if one of the godparents is, say, Baptist? Or are all Roman Catholic churches strict about having both godparents be Catholic?

ETA: The answer, as I kind of expected, seems to be that it depends on the church, but at least one godparent must be Catholic, if not both. Thanks, everyone :)
