It seems like another "of" is missing. I would say as a native speaker, He is the father of two of Zofie's sons. Or of Zofie's two sons. Unless there are two Zofies in which case I would change it to two Zofies' sons.

There is definitely an error here. No one who speaks English as a native would say it the given way. Denise has the right of it: in her first example there is an implication that Žofie has more sons with someone else, in the second that there are two and "he" is their father.

Seconded, the english version as it is sounds ungrammatical.
