No, step-parents have no legal rights to the biological children of their spouses.

Some custody orders allow the parent to designate a person to pick up/drop off the child for visitation purposes. I'd check your order and see if it allows your ex to designate "a competent adult" etc for pick up/drop off. Those aren't "rights" in the typical sense, but it means you and your children may have some interaction with his new wife.
