His name is Peter van der Veen and he previously worked security for Lady Gaga for five years, according to Metro.

The former bodybuilder from Holland was crowned Mr. Europe in 2005, reports the Mirror.

Fans of the "Hello" star appear to be thrilled with the new addition to her team, with dozens professing their love on Twitter:

Adele's new album broke UK chart records Friday after the Official Charts Company confirmed it had recorded the biggest opening sales week in history, according to Billboard. The album sold 800,307 copies in Britain alone.

The star's whirlwind promo tour over the last two weeks has seen her prank impersonators for a BBC show, perform "Hello" with classroom instruments on "The Tonight Show" and become BFFs with former Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
