"They support their children."

Soportar would also work, right?

In this context I think it won't work. If the sentence was for example: "The pole supports a traffic light", then soportar would definitely work, but in the current sentence, if you said "Ellos soportan a sus hijos", it would mean that "they bear/tolerate their children".

Would Ellas also be correct?

I think it would be correct only if the people were all women.
