No, because first legal heir is the children after that come second wife.

First wife's children and legally wedded second wife are entitled for equal share in the property of father / Husband.  The exclusive share to first wife children  entitlement only if the property belongs to their mother alone.  Always contact local advocate as Deciding legal heir through forum is not proper.  Lot of details are needed and the guidance through forum is general in nature and not specific to your issue, as facts may vary from case to case.

Yes. The second wife is one of the legal heirs of the deceased husband, along with the two children from the first wife.  All the three are entitled to equal share in the property/asset left behind by the deceased.
