Male betta not getting the eggs

My male betta wont go to the bottom of the tank to pick up the eggs. All he wants to do is mate with my female. He has a bubble nest built. Why wont he go get the eggs?

They may not of wrapped correctly and he never fertilized them so he's not paying them any mind.

I had a male do this today... After a couple more wraps he picked them all up with the new eggs the female had just dropped. The female helped too.

Typically the female will swim and stay away from the nest, or the male will chase her off.
