Is it alright if one Godparent is Catholic, the other Christian?

Yeah. One Godparent has to be a practicing Catholic in good standing with their church. The other can be of another denomination. They are called a Christian Witness. They have to be in good standing with their church. Sometimes they do ask for a letter from the NonCatholic Godparent church. Saying they are in good standing with their church. Well that is what others had told me could happen in the baptismal class. Well I never had to go through a baptismal class for our son. No one even questioned if the Godparents were Catholic. We were asked what Sunday had we intended on doing the baptism. That was about it. Other than name of our son and names of the Godparents. That was like 18 yrs ago. Now they make the parents go to class and do all this preparing for the baptism.

I agree, one must be a practicing Catholic but the other may be a nonCatholic Christian.
