Here are some ...: Normally, soon after ovulation, the ovum is sucked into the Fallopian tube, where the waiting egg meets the up-swimming sperms from vagina through cervix and uterine cavity into Fallopian tubes and fertilization takes place. Somehow, both egg and sperm have their mutual inherent affinity. Now we can witness how the wonder of nature has existed and arranged.

That first sperm subsequently sheds its cover and its dna is expanded inside the ovum so that the combination of the two haploid dnas can take place and create a brand new dna identity!
