Does the dna of the sperm and egg join together and then replicated?If not,then what happens?

During fertilisation, the fusion of sperm and ovum forms the zygote. Here intermingling of two sets of haploid genes (male and female) occurs to reconstitute a diploid cell. The diploid zygote then divides, during which the chromosomes are also replicated.
