Why isn’t it ddal?

because in this situation the "ei" is referring to a woman therefore if it causes a mutation it will be aspirate as opposed to the masculine "ei" which causes a soft mutation (eg "Ei gath o"="His cat" but "Ei chath hi"="Her cat"). Since d doesn't mutate aspirately it remains as dal.
