What kind of fry are these???

Hi there! I have a black Molly female that I have had for awhile and she was very large I assumed maybe she was pregnant from before we got her but she gave birth to what look like small grey guppy fry?? I thought Molly fry were black? Any ideas? I do have 2 male fancy guppies in my tank and she is the only Molly I own.

I would of thought black would be a dominant colour. My platy fry were born black so I'm a little confused right now. It may depend on the colour of the father though.

95% sure the father is a guppy however their tails aren't so "fancy" looking either that or the white male sailfin Molly that was with her briefly about 6-7 months ago
