can a Molly crossbreed with a Balloon Belly Platy

I have a female balloon belly platy and it appears that the "sire" of her up coming birthing is a lyra tail Molly is that possible? He just won't leave her alone. Any ideas? What should I do? She looks as if she is about to pop! Thanks!

I wouldn't say it's not possible since mollies, sword tails and platys are from same family.
My mom got guppy crossed with swordtail once so it's possible.
I wouldn't say it's natural though and often crossed breed species live shorter and have health issues.
