Black Molly pregnant

I've had a black Molly for about a month or two. I'm pretty sure she is pregnant. The bottom of her big belly is now flat so I'm pretty sure it will be any day now. I recently added a Dalmatian Molly who I'm guessing is male. (bottom fin is sword shaped) He won't leave the pregnant Molly alone. Should I separate them? He keeps nudging her belly, constantly bugging her. But this only started this morning. She can't get away from him!

It's recommended to have 2-3 females per every male, otherwise the females will get too stressed leading to illness and even death. What size is your tank? You should get at least 1-2 more females if it won't make your tank overstocked.
