During formation of gametes, each set of alleles for a specific gene segregate independently from other sets of alleles into gametes. So each gamete receives one member of the pair of alleles - This is Mendel's Law of Segregation.
When fertilization occurs, pairs are reestablished by receiving one copy from each parent. All the body cells are formed from this zygote, hence they will all possess a pair of alleles.
