EWTN.com - Godparents and Sponsors: "Godparents and Sponsors
I read somewhere that Godparents should be Catholics who live their faith, and must be one male and one female or just one; cannot be two of the same gender. Is this true? What about Confirmation sponsors?
Answer by Rev. Mark J. Gantley, JCL on 10/16/2008:
What you cite is accurate, except that only one godparent is needed for confirmation."
