If you leave both parents in the tank, most likely they will eat the fry, so it shouldn't be a problem.

In the future you could increase surface movement to prevent him building a bubble nest, and if he does make one, remove it as soon as he's finished to they can't spawn.

I'm surprised they were so eager to mate, some people have alot of trouble breeding bettas.
