"descendent" pronunciation

Is the second 'd' in "descendent" pronounced because in the audio file it seems like it isn't? (Les enfants descendent de la voiture) Or is it not pronounced because of the "de" succeeding it?

The second "d" in descendent merges with the "d" in de. It isn't separately and distinctly pronounced.
