Why is my guppy in love with my swordtail?

One of my two male guppies will not leave my female pineapple swordtail alone. He practically swims on top of her 24/7. He ignores the other male guppy and vice versa.

Does he thinks she is his mother or is in love with her or what? They can't breed together, right? She puts up with him and doesn't seem to care too much.

male guppys are always after breeding,as long as the sword is not stressed by this imposing company,then let it be.
however guppys can haress a female guppy to death
so beware of his affections.
