The singer's husband, Marc Anthony, is supposedly against the plan

Jennifer Lopez has supposedly asked Tom Cruise to be godfather to her recently born twins, according to The Metro.

The newspaper says Lopez‘s husband, Marc Anthony, is opposed to the idea. Anthony is a Roman Catholic, and is supposedly concerned about Cruise‘s standing as a senior scientologist.

The paper quotes an anonymous source close to the couple as saying, “Marc wasn’t sure if it was a good idea but in the end Jennifer managed to convince him to agree. Tom is delighted.”

Cruise is reported to have spent over £100,000 on presents for the twins already, and is said to have paid for a fish tank to be installed in their nursery.
