Thank you for your Question

Yes, this will be counted as Zina. And the child will be illegitimate.

Infact, Ruling 2421. If a married woman commits adultery, then based on obligatory precaution she becomes unlawful forever for the adulterous man. However, she does not become unlawful for her husband. And in the event that she does not repent and persists in committing adultery, it is better for her husband to divorce her, although he still has to give her dowry to her.

May Allah help us all
