If there are no changes, you do not technically need to update or revise it--you can let it stand as is.
However, while not required, it would be a good idea, to make clear that everything is going to your daughter and make it more difficult for your new husband to challenge it (if he were so inclined), to have a new one made that includes a paragraph specifically naming him and stating that he is not receiving anything under the will.
