I think the reason Selmy suddenly gets closed-mouthed is more likely because he doesn't feel like telling Dany that her dad raped some woman on her wedding night.

As for Tywin's attitude, even if the rape occurred, he wouldn't necessarily know whether it resulted in pregnancy or not. It's not as if they had DNA tests. And, presumably, Tywin would be bopping his wife on a regular basis anyway, so, at least from his perspective, the odds would be highly in favor of the twins being his offspring.

What Tywin doesn't take into account is that he's a character in George Martin novel, which means that, when it comes to things like this, the most awful possibility is usually the most likely.
