How does it fetch it ?

I guess the evident answer is "no", unless you give some more details of 
what you are trying to do, and maybe why.

For Apache2, the call comes from Apache1, so that is the address it will 
record. How would it know from which IP address Apache1 was called ? 
Unless you Apache1 cgi-bin script passes the original IP address somehow 
in its call to Apache2, and on Apache2 something picks up that 
argument/header and records it in the log.
