In brief: Nondisjunction
When the cells divide in the ovaries and testes to form eggs and sperm, they go through a process called meiosis where half of the paired chromosomes go to one cell and half go to the other. There is a phenomenon called nondisjunction where the chromosomes segregate unequally, causing an extra chromosome in one cell and the lack of a chromosome in the other.
