Populate Values when Child & Parent Fields in Word Template have the Same Names | LINQ Reporting Engine C# .NET

I cannot access the data when the parent and child has the same name. For example: address.address will not work, while address.oldAddress will work. I’m not sure if this is by design. How can I get the value of the address.address without changing the structure of the passed data source? Thanks.

The below file contains the code, template, and result. I expect that the old address is printed in the resulted pdf file.
