Is it the same to say "filios habemus" and "habemus filios"? I put habemus filios and it said it is correct, like filios habemus

It's said that the "standard" or unmarked way of saying it is to put the direct object before the verb (filios habemus), but there's nothing wrong with putting the object after the verb (habemus filios).
