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 Allah.

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.
