It sounds as if the children are linked to two Family Records.
The desired parent's Family Record, and a residual Family Record from the deleted
In the Property Box of one of the Children, click on the blue triangular Up to parents
button at the top.
Does this offer the two Families as I have suggested above?
If so then open the Families Record Window and locate and delete the rogue Family, which
will probably have no Husband nor Wife,
just links to the Children.

Subject: [FHU] Help with linking existing people
I discovered this morning that I had for years had the same person shown as
a father and son and have corrected this by unlinking the son's two wives
with their children and re-linking them to the father, with all relevant
facts etc., then deleting the son. I now have an up and down arrow, with
either both parents showing, or neither depending upon which arrow I clock
on, to the left of the parent's names when I click on the magnifying glass
next to the children's names. I know I've had this before, and solved it,
but I can't for the life of me remember how I did it. Could someone help
