That's not unusual. She's curious and her hormones are probably a little off. Just watch them both - mommy #2 may accidently or deliberately hurt the kittens. Or she may help nurse them. Just watch. When mommy #2 has her babies, she should settle down.

You need to keep them apart, at least until the other girl has her babies. She needs the colostrum milk for her bubs, so shouldn't feed the kittens from the first girl.

This behaviour is not unusual, especielly if they are good friends.

At the best they are helping each other, the kittens having de facto two moms.

But sometimes wrong female is the dominating, and or takes over the litter...

So no need to panic, but you must keep an eye on them...

It would be best if the newest kittens get the colostrum from their own mother for the first couple of days. However, as long as all the babies are getting enough to eat, they should be fine together. If they're really bonded it could cause more stress (and possibly interrupt the feeding) if you try to separate them. Do you have any pictures?

You'll need to upload pictures from your computer to something like photobucket.com (there are others, but this is the one I know). It's free to sign up. Once you have your pictures there, copy the line that under the image that says IMG code. Paste that code into your message here and your pictures should show up. I always do a Preview first to make sure I got it right.
