Can jack dempseys and convicts mate?

I have 1 black convict cichlid(female) and 2 male jack Dempseys. I was wondering if the female convict can become pregnant from the jack Dempseys. Thanks so much

No I was referring to why on Earth would you want to have fish hybridize like that?

Because it is a hybrid. Most any fish when hybridized will have deformities. Blood Parrots are a perfect example.
