External IP Address for RBR50 in AP Mode

My RBR50 is set in AP mode. In Orbi app (ios), when checking Router Settings - Internet Port - External IP Address, it shows RBR50's LAN IP address instead of the real external IP. Is it possible to show or see the real external IP somewhere?

A wireless access point doesn't have an external IP in the same sense that a router does. It doesn't straddle two different network passing traffic between the two.

The external IP address will only appear ON the main host router.
