He paid zakaat al-fitr on behalf of the foetus then found out that it was twins

Question

My wife was pregnant during Ramadaan and I paid zakaat al-fitr on behalf of the foetus that was in his mother’s womb, but when the mother gave birth a few days after Eid al-Fitr, she gave birth to two twins by the will and decree of Allaah. 
Do I have to do anything now, knowing that I gave zakaah on behalf of one foetus and I did not give anything on behalf of the other?.

Answer

Praise be to Allaah.

You do not have to do anything because of not paying zakaat al-fitr on behalf of the second foetus. 

And Allaah is the Source of strength.
