unknown fry in tank

can any one ID these redish color fry. the rest are guppy. the only female fish i had in my tank were guppy who died soon after birth. i found these fry inside one of my plant. they look completely different to me from the guppy.
i have attached couple of pics.

In a lot of livebearers the gravid point does not go away fully.

Yup, it can happen. Or if you got the plant from a tank with platys, a couple newborn fry could have hitched a ride home with you. What was in the tank with the plant you bought?

Your Platy could just be pregnant again. Livebearers can store sperm for a rather long time.
