Large decimal degree values when calculating geometry for latitude and longitude

Often we need to edit a polygon feature and recalculate a longitude and latitude field for the centroid of the feature.  Historically, we have been doing this editing calculation within arcmap, but have been trying it out in ArcGIS pro.

 

Unfortunately when we try and calculate the centroid x-coordinate and centroid y-coordinate for longitude and latitude in decimal degrees we are getting very large values as compared to the workflow used in arcmap.  It looks like the format is being displayed in meters.

 

Below are the setting we are using:

 

 

Here is the output of (Lat,Lon) for a test feature that was created.

 

Any ideas on how to reproduce the calculate geometry function from arcmap?

 

Thanks
