Strange output when adding XY coordinates

I am really struggling with the following:

I have created random points within a home range of an animal. I would like to add the lat and long coordinates to these random points. I have used the "Add XY coordinates" (Data Management) tool for this. However, I get very strange outputs and wish to have these coordinates in Decimal Degrees (which they seem to be in when I try to change it using the Converting Tables of Coordinates tool). The data seems to be in the right Projected Coordinate System:    WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_36S.

These are my outputs:

Does anyone know what is going on? The decimal is a point (sorry Dutch settings...).Thank you so much for your help!

Instead of cross posting the same question in multiple spaces or places, you can post in one and "share" with other areas.  That is the preferred workflow.
