Jennifer Lopez wants Tom Cruise to be godfather to her twins.
The Latino star, who gave birth to son Max and daughter Emme on February 22, has reportedly persuaded her husband Marc Anthony to give Tom the role despite their differences in religious beliefs.
A source said: "Tom is delighted. Marc wasn't sure if it was a good idea to have a Scientologist as the kids' godfather, especially as he and Jennifer are both Catholic. But in the end Jennifer managed to convince him to agree."
Tom, who is an active follower of bizarre sci-fi cult Scientology, has already showered the newborn twins with gifts.
He splashed out $200,000 on designer christening outfits for Max and Emme, ordered a giant fish tank for their nursery and gave them complete Disney DVD box sets.
It has also been claimed Tom and his wife Katie Holmes planned to host a star-studded $200,000 'Welcome to the World' themed-party for the fraternal twins.
Max and Emme have been treated to a host of gifts since they were born.
Jennifer, 38, is said to have purchased two Shetland ponies for Max and Emme, along with diamond-encrusted rattles, 600 thread count Egyptian cotton for the baby's cots and designer babygros for the nursery wing in her Los Angeles home.
