      If you don’t know it might be something for your parents to answer 😛

      But seriously, babies are made when a sperm and an egg meet, and combine their genetic material into one cell called a zygote (this is the first cell of your body!). This cell then grows and grows and multiplies and continues to grow for 9 months until the baby is fully grown, at which point it’s ready to face the world!

      Ahh, I was going to give the ‘when a man and woman love each other a stork comes along …’ explanation!

      But yeah, what matt said!
