I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

You have no legal obligation whatsoever to support your husband's ex-wife. That means that a judge cannot increase alimony based on your income. Money that you spend on joint living expenses that your husband would otherwise pay for is treated as gifts to him, which means that his income could be considered to have increased. But your salary information is protected and you cannot be ordered to pay her anything.

A prenuptial agreement is binding on you and your husband, not any third parties. So it wouldn't have any effect on the judge from your husband's divorce case if she WERE entitled to part of your salary. But she isn't.
