Can my 2 month old platy be pregnant?

My platy had some fry in the 2nd week of January this year. 4 survived, 2 male and 2 female. I also have 1 male adult and 6 female adult platy too.

My 2 month old platy female is getting extremely fat so is it possible she is pregnant? if she is then the fy will be so tiny when born, but also she is so small so did not think she would be sexually acttive yet

I hope someone answers you, because I have a similar question: How soon must I separate my baby platies to avoid early pregancies? My fry are 1 month old today. I think I have 20 in there.

i had a female GUPPY give birth then the fry gave birth at 2 month old so in my opinion yes its highly posable that shes pregnant :):):)
