converting Lat/Long Decimal degrees to DMS

I have a point feature class with latitude and longitude  in decimal degrees. I want to calculate the geometry of these fields to degrees, minutes and seconds. I changed the data frame properties display units for the map to DMS but I don't have the option in Calculate Geometry when I right click on the field to convert to DMS. Is it possible or do I need to do the math in an expression to convert?

DMS can only be expressed in text field.  Decimal degrees can g into a numeric field
